I recalled that Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew had posted about some scrap monograms that she worked on with her little guy. I thought I would adapt the idea for Easter eggs. We used cereal box cardboard, Modge Podge, and the scraps were pinked about one inch squares.
Here are the finished eggs they remind me of crazy quilts. This was an ideal rainy day project for kids who enjoy gluing. Another approach might be to cut the fabric in strips for a different effect, or add buttons or sequins.
This egg was "embellished" with puffy paint for a different effect. I pasted it on an old box from last Easter.
As for the Easter basket - here is the before shot. My girlfriend was going to toss it but I thought it still had some life in it.
I primed and painted it and added a vintage sheet lining and some trim.
Have a lovely week! This project is linked to Someday Crafts Easter Link Up
