Eggs that sparkle...

Here are some Easter Eggs that sparkle!
Yes I can get girly from time to time!
Faberge has nothing on me! ;-)

So gathered up some 'Springish' fabrics, cutter , rule and small mat.
Also had some Mod Podge glue along with $ Tree plastic eggs.
I bought 3 large treat eggs and 2 bags of 6 medium size eggs.

I cut my first strips too wide so had to redo them.
Best for me was 3/4 to 1/2 inch strips.
Brushed on MP with foam brush.
Also found strips work best top to bottom more than around the egg.
Though I think a couple neat trims would look cool wrapped around the middles.
I was just over them by this point! ;-)
Messy business I tell ya!
Plus at first I had thought to paper mache them with pretty napkins..arrrghh, just saying!
So decided fabric was a more workable medium for me!

Had to add some shine to them as this was matte MP.
So my big jar of fine glass glitter came out to play.
Must add this before they are dry, nice and tacky...oh my!
Yes I bet some will think my eggs tacky... hahaha!

Takes a while to dry!
DH also commented on the scent(stink) the MP and fabric was putting out!
He did find them very pretty though!
Once dry they no longer smell!

I added some dried moss to Aunt Dot's petit four stand.
Put the stand on the Feedsack Bunnies runner on sofa chest for now.
Will move to dining table( if I can ever find it's top again ) as Easter Sunday centerpiece.
Saw the cats eying them a bit ago so may have to move soon!!

This Friday we begin laying the new flooring in guest room at long last!
All the crown molding is in, painted and finished. Looks lovely!
My darling DH rocks!

Hope by Sunday evening can begin moving things back in and unload the rest of the house!
Have Easter Sunday guests coming !!
Besides beginning to think we are living in a storage facility!!
I do think this mess is why I like to have a nice rest period between home projects!!!!
Need to remind myself of this when I get that 'need to get busy on the master bed and bath redo' feeling!!!
