"Egg"cellent idea!

Several weeks ago Vivienne@the V Spot asked this question on her blog.

How do you like your eggs. . . scrambled, over easy. . . plastic?

Well that caught my attention. So I checked out what she had done with these plastic eggs that we all have rolling around our 'seasonal decor tote'. It was soooo neat. You will definitely want to check it out too. I followed her directions and this was the outcome.

I gathered up all my pretty colored plastic eggs. I had many that we had accumulated over the years, and one whole bag (purchased several years ago) that had never been opened.

I opened each egg, and ran a bead of glue around the edge of the opening and closed it up to dry.

I took them out to the garage and spray painted them with a primer paint. I painted mine in batches, as I was only using a small table to paint them on. Be careful, those little suckers roll around as you are spray painting them.

All painted with the primer paint.

Then I sprayed them with "Speckle Stone" paint.

Voila, you now have dozens of birds eggs to decorate with for Spring!

This is one of my grandmother old bread pans.

I'm joining Metamorphosis Monday over at Between naps on the Porch today. Hope you will pop over and see the many, MANY ideas!!!


  1. Tanya!!! They look fantastic! I love the single egg nestled in the teacup with the moss. I'm going to share this link on fb and tweet it too. Great job!

  2. Wow! They look great! I have some stone paint and will try them. (I guess I better get busy with only a few days left before Easter!) :)


  3. SO TALENTED TANYA! I love your ideas!
