Wrapped Easter Eggs

These cute little eggs are so easy to make.  A little messy, but the end result is well worth it.  Plus there are a multitude of great ideas to use them for.  Quick, easy, and economical... sign me up for this Easter craft.

Hope you love them as much as I do!

Plastic easter eggs
Old book pages or sheet music
Elmer's glue
A willingness to get messy

*Cut your pages or sheet music into strips from 1-1 1/2 inches.
*Mix Elmer's glue with water at a 2:1 ratio.
*Run paper strips through the glue/water mixture and apply to plastic eggs.
*Spread and remove bubbles as you go.
*Set up to dry.  These will take awhile.  Mine dried overnight.

And there you have it...
These eggs are great on pedestals, candle sticks, cloches, or in a bowl.

This is my favorite!

I used an old candle jar, washed and cleaned out.
Stacked three eggs and added a flower from our garden for a pop of color.

Ribbon, lace, anything girlie would be a great addition.

So get started creating and show us what you've got!
Hope you enjoy!
