As you may know our family has enjoyed raising chickens for quite some time now, so we
are used to having eggs around. I have noticed that eggs have definitely become part of the
FARMHOUSE look. I found this basket filled to the top with solid wood eggs at the Good Will
Thrift Store. I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit.
I decided to use White Chalk Paint on
Earlier I had purchased a coco liner from
the DOLLAR TREE. It fit it the basket and I use hot glue to hold in place.
I was happy with the way it came together. In the future I may decide to plant flowers in the basket.
I found these plastic eggs at the 99cent store. They are made for painting and do not open.
I bought 2 pkgs. They look so real, I left one pkg. as is. That is what I have in the first picture
of the eggs in the box.
The other pkg. I decided to paint.
The Moss is from the Dollar Tree.
Some of the eggs I painted with Black Chalkboard Paint.
Some of the eggs I painted Robins' egg blue.
I may add speckles, using an old toothbrush and a bit of paint flicking with your thumbnail.
Some of the eggs I used matte Mod Podge and small pieces of Dictionary pages.
You can cut out favorite pictures for top layer.
I also used Mod Podge and scrapes of tissue paper
from vintage dress pattern.
Just keep layering until you like the look and color.
This was my favorite.
I hope I gave you some inspiration for adding eggs to your décor. xoLisaS
