Primitive Easter Eggs
I am in the crafting mood! lol. Seems like I just can't get enough crafts done this week. Today, I made some more Primitive Easter Eggs for my Booth #555.( Coming soon to my Etsy shop also!)
If you'd like to make some adorable Easter eggs in the prim style, here's how I done it.
I started out with some plain, brownish crafting eggs. They look like this and I buy them in bulk packages of 40.
Then, to add a country look. I load a toothbrush with some off white and fling little dots of color all over some. This was a great tip I still recall from my high school art teacher!
Next I draw on my sayings consisting of, "fresh eggs, free range, 5 cents, ect." Or I will stencil on some stars using my Delta stencil paint. And then let all that dry.
And finally, all that is left to do is match them up in sets of two, package them in a celo bag and tie them off with a bit of homespun fabric.
And wa~la. Here's some cute Primitive Easter Eggs ready to go into my Booth #555 at the Peddlers Mall.
Here's some more pics of them finished. I don't know why I can't keep all my eggs in a basket. lol.
