EGGS for FARMHOUSE and SPRING DECOR- 5 STYLES

 




      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      
 
                                   EVERYTHING  !                                      
                                                       
 
 
 
                                                              

                                                  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.
 
 
And then-
 



         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

  7. SO many great ideas! I'm not sure if I like the white chalk eggs or the decoupaged eggs better; either way they are quite festive.
