I’ve kept my spring decor pretty simple – inspired by the ideas I’ve seen on different blogs. I covered a couple plastic eggs. The one with flowers I used hot glue and found it to be a messy, time consuming project. I probably wouldn’t do it again. The sheet music egg is modpodged. I tore up the paper into small pieces, covered my egg with glue, then started sticking papers and applying more glue. I felt like I was back in grade school doing paper mache. Again, messy, but more enjoyable and not nearly as time consuming. To finish it off I simply hot-glued a ribbon and a couple buttons.
I’d like to also try using tissue paper to cover plastic eggs. HERE’S a good tutorial for that project.
I’ve also seen some specimen art around lately and was inspired to try making some of my own. Here’s what I came up with. I sized it to fit a 4×6 plastic picture holder and then stuck it to the outside of the frame.
