How to Make Newsprint Easter Eggs

Today I'm thinking about eggs.

I'm thinking my Spring decorating should include some unique eggs this year.

Brown paper eggs to decoupage

So I started out using brown paper eggs.

Then I cut up old book pages into little pieces, you can also use newspaper.

I got out my Mod Podgeand began gluing the pieces to the egg.

It took a lot of smoothing to get the paper to lay flat.

  20. Love book print and music print on about anything. I bought a small box last summer, simply because of the print on it. (It combined two of my faves- little objects and print!) So did I love teaching because of both of these? Mayhaps!
