Squeezing Out One Last One!

Before the egg coloring, the egg hunt, the baking and cooking for tomorrow I managed to squeeze out one more Easter project.



I bought some wooden eggs from Joann Fabrics the other day. I also used some silver and brown paint, a paint brush and an egg carton.



I painted the eggs silver one half at a time using the egg carton for a holder and palette.

When they were dry, I brushed on some brown paint with a very wet sponge brush. Then I took a wet paper towel to blot some off.

And....



Faux mercury eggs for the Easter brunch table!

Really quick and easy!

Yeah, I have 3 bags of wooden eggs I had every intention of 'fixing up', but alas, they languish in the corner of my craft table, accepting their fate of being relegated to my pile of crafting good intentions. *sigh*
