It is so spring like in Michigan that I can’t help but set my sights on spring time decorating.
I saw these grungy looking eggs at an antique store awhile back and I decided I would give a go at making them myself.
Wanna join me?
You’ll need some Mod podge, cinnamon, paint brush, various brown craft paints, a blue paint of your choice, and some paper mache’ eggs.
First give your eggs a light coating of blue paint.
When they dry mix in some brown and dry brush that on.
Keep adding and dabbing different brown mixtures until you are satisfied with the look.
Paint a circle of mod podge then dip in cinnamon.
When dry you can give it a light spray of matte sealer just on the cinnamon circle if you would like.
Before adding the eggs to your basket dry brush a little cinnamon all over the rest of the egg to give it a more matte, rusty, dusty look.
Pair your grungy farm eggs with a spring-y sign and wait for the spring to actually arrive!! =)
