“Birds of a feather flock together”and eggs do too. Nothing quite says Easter or Spring then farm fresh eggs, jellybeans, peeps and chocolate bunnies. Now is the time to start prepping for your table and decor as Easter will be here on March 27. Start gathering the sweet baskets, edible grass and candies, but please don’t forget the eggs. If you want to make a hit this Easter season why not create some faux egg decor to jazz up your table setting and mantle. Try decoupaging various papers to an egg base like styrofoam or paper mache just like CCB Crew Member Alison Osborn did in her latest project. Alison creatively used various papers from the Canvas Corp Spring Line to adorn paper mache eggs. The result is this fun project!
- Kraft & White Damask, Canvas Corp
- Kraft & White Mini Dots, Canvas Corp
- Black & Ivory Plaid, Canvas Corp
- Spring Showers: Butterflies on Ivory, Canvas Corp
- Spring Showers: Spring Flowers Reverse on Ivory, Canvas Corp
- Burlap Sheet – natural burlap, Canvas Corp
- Paper Mache eggs
- Other; twine, cloth ribbons and buttons
- X-Acto knife
- Hot glue gun
- Decoupage medium
I then shredded the remainder of those same two papers with an X-Acto knife. You can also use fringe scissors or a shredder. Next I decoupaged on the shredded paper until the bowl was covered and I was happy with the results. Have fun with this; you can even create a basket weave with the paper. Once it was dry, I carefully removed the bowl and peeled off the plastic wrap. I then used strips of burlap to cover the inside of the nest. For some finishing touches, I cut a few feathers out of paper and attached them to the sides. I also weaved twine and burlap into the outer sides of the nest.
