What Came First, the Newspaper or the Egg?
I bet you have a bag full of those plastic Dollar Store eggs too. I keep mine in the attic now because certain small people were still playing "egg hunt" last July, and I got sick of finding them hidden under my couches and behind my pillows.
I can only hide so many eggs before I get tired and want to come in and eat Peeps. So I decided to think up a little project to take care of a few of the extras.
My supplies included newspaper, scissors, Mod Podge, plastic eggs, a small foam brush, and a mocha from Panera, because every good craft should be accompanied by caffeine.
I cut small strips of newspaper first. Then I used my foam brush to apply a small amount of Mod Podge to the egg, laying strips of newspaper, spreading the pieces flat as I went.
If you don't like getting your hands sticky, this is not the project for you.
They still need to be smoothed out a little bit, but I think they are kind of fun.
They might also look cute on a platter in a bed of moss, maybe paired with a little bunny.
I've seen eggs died and decoupaged with just about everything else in the past year or so, so I thought why not try newspaper? The best part was that it cost me nothing because I had all of the supplies at home!
The winner of The Peacock Shop Giveaway was Jessica from Adventures of a Wife and Mommy.

I hope you guys are still planning on joining in for the first Dishing It! party on April 14th. This new monthly party is my way of getting bloggers together to chat about a common topic. I'll post a question/topic a few days before the party, and ask everyone to link up and hop around. I think it will be a fun way for us to get to know other bloggers.
Also, in case you missed the announcement, the next Decorating Dilemmas Party is on for April 21st. That's my birthday, so please don't let me down. It's going to be a blast offering each other feedback on our Dilemmas and Solutions. Hope you'll join us!
