painting eggs...

Through the many crafty blog parties that I am obsessed with each week, I came across these painted eggs using the cheapo plastic eggs that we all have in our Easter bins.
With eggs, a blue and white paint mixture, and some brown and white paint for splattering,  I went to work...

the result -- a pottery barn knock-off. These are PB's pricey eggs above...
These are my cheapies below...

Not Bad?

Find a nest....
(this is a large crow's nest that a neighbor found and gave to me!)

And you've got a cute birds nest with eggs...

Next step -Acquire the patience to borrow yet another idea from PB and stamp the names on the 2nd batch of eggs that I created here at my mom's to add to each of the kids' Easter baskets.


  1. Those are SO cute and crafty!!! I am totally going to try that with my daughter!!! Thanks for sharing your idea!

  2. Your painted eggs turned out great! I love the splattered effect you added. I have tons of those plastic eggs so I may have to give this a try.

  3. I never thought about using plastic eggs! We had the egg hunt at my house last year & I have GOBS! Great idea!

  4. WOW!! And I'm loving the new header too. You're a crafty genius.

  5. Those are great. What a good use of those old plastic eggs!!!! I did something along those lines as well, but with wooden eggs, and used them as a teaching tool for my Munchkin.

  6. Wow I'm impressed with your painting skills. I would never have that much patience, so creative.

  7. great job with the eggs. It all looks fabulous.


admit it! comments make your day! i'd love to hear what you have to say!
