Welcoming Spring

I have an incurable case of spring fever.  It's been a busy few days here.  Some new spring beauties have emerged.  I am so thrilled with these projects and how they turned out.  

First, I wanted to take some small eggs I purchased at the dollar store and transform them. I used this light blue paint.  The eggs were very bright but this covered them well.
 They are styrofoam so I was able to use a toothpick to paint them then I had a half a styrofoam ball to use as a drying stand.  I love the light color.
Next project was to cover large dollar store glitter eggs with silk flowers.  I like the glitter but the colors were not me.
 It was very easy to hot glue these on. They look lovely now.

The final project was a "let's see what happens if"  I add food coloring to Mod Podge and use it to cover the eggs with book old book pages.
 Here is the Mod Podge with a little blue food coloring, just two drops.

 I ripped up some book pages that were left over from my book wreath.  This book was so old and they ripped very easily.
 The glittery dollar store eggs.
 The newly transformed book page eggs.

I hope you have enjoyed these spring projects.  Come visit in a few days for some more spring fun.

What a great idea to color the Mod Podge, it worked so well! Now I'm thinking of all of the things I could use colored Mod Podge on. :) Thanks for sharing your ideas, your eggs all look so nice!
