Vintage Inspired Eggs

You guys gave me so much inspiration from your links on Friday.

One link in particular, really gave me some inspiration.   I mean, I looked at these eggs she made, and I knew I had to make some. mom, sister, and I spent most of the day Sunday making these Vintage Inspired Eggs. 

We started out with these plastic eggs.  We actually used two different sizes. A small egg and a larger sized egg.

We then used sheet music and mod podge to cover the eggs.

**In order for this to work you have to use A TON of mod podge.

Cover your whole egg.  They don't have to look perfect.  You can see that mine are NOT perfect, by any means.  They look more tattered if they aren't perfect, which I love.

Then with some lace, beads, and some old costume jewelry we embellished our eggs.  

I really love how vintage they look.  These eggs could be displayed any time of the year, not just for Easter.  The fun thing about these eggs are that you can basically do just about anything with them to make them you own style.
