I saw these cute eggs and knew I wanted to make them…just a little different! So first I bought a med sized egg from Michaels. It was about $3. It was already blue, but I gave it a fresh coat with robin egg blue spray paint. Then I added polka dots with my finger. I’ve found that is the easiest way.
I decided it needed a few smaller dots so I grabbed a thumb tack and dotted away. :)
Next it needed ribbon. Then some rick rack on top of the ribbon… it just makes it cuter!
Then I decided I was going to stamp an egg to go inside my frame I spray painted white. But honestly the egg just wasn’t screaming cute to me…
So i looked around the house for what else I had, and I found these suckers I bought at Walmart. They were cute, and I knew I wouldn’t eat them… but I still had to buy them. haha NOW they serve for a great purpose.
Isn’t the chick so much cuter!?!
When I added the sucker it was a little off balance, so I had to re-evaluate. I could get into physics and try to glue something to the back…but I was lazy so I stuck her in a jar! Works for me!



Cute...now go make one!!!

    This is just too cute. I bought a couple of these large eggs and have been wondering what to do with them. You have given me inspiration. I love your cloches. You should post them on the Cloche Spring Party over at A Stroll Thru Life blog.

    So cute! You ladies who decorate for every holiday are so impressive to me. I don't have the space and I'm a major procrastinator so I always wait until it's too late anyway.

    Nice job! I love the frame!!!

    Adorableness! Such a cute idea, but I must confess… I haven't even started thinking about spring decor accents. I just got the Christmas tree out of the kid's rooms a couple weeks ago! May I have my Domestic Goddess Award now? ;-)

    I just made a comment last week, that no one could make those eggs look nice. They’ve tried all kinds of things in our local store and they were just darn ugly. I have to admit, I was mistaken. Yours came out very cute! I like it!
