Primitive COUNTRY Easter Eggs


Here's some country eggs I made that would be great to display at Easter or anytime throughout the year.

They started out as plain ole' plastic crafting eggs.  I order them in huge bags like this.

Here they are out of the bag:

They are just plain, lightweight, plastic eggs. They do not come apart like Easter eggs do.  But if you have them on hand, I'm sure they will work fine too.

These take a little more time than I thought they would, but in the end they are so worth it. 
You basically have to handle each one, and paint them, one side at a time.
Some I used the crackle effect with Elmers glue to give them a different look. So that was extra messy.

Some I wrapped in twine or fabric and hot glued buttons on them.

They look awesome in an old bowl or crock, displayed in a kitchen or dinning room also.

Some are hand painted by me, then dipped in a smell good, waxy country mixture of cinnamon and the others are fabric wrapped (which takes a bit of time.)








These have became a  best seller in my Booth #555. Since I first posted this article, I have had to increase their price slightly from $1.49 to $2.49. I figured after the time I spent one on one with each egg it was worth it. lol. Still a bargain, I think.
