I set out to write a post about the fabulous napkin decoupage eggs I was going to make.
The kids of course needed ‘dye’, so kid #1 bought the deluxe kit. It had everything in it, stickers, paint, glitter, glue, sponge painters, brushes … TOO MUCH stuff. I’ve always been a wax crayon and food coloring egg decorator, but OH NO … I had to get crafty!
It started out not so bad, a nice neat tidy table.
It got ugly fast. Double even triple dipping was going on. Can these really be ‘my’ children?
I tried to tell them that you don’t need to recreate a Rembrandt on those itty bitty eggs … a little band of color would do nicely?!
They even felt the need to wrap the poor eggs in foil (of course it came with the kit!).
Even I couldn’t keep it simple. I am pretty sure I wasn’t supposed to ‘dye’ and ‘mod podge’.
Don’t tell the kids, but together we created some of the worlds ugliest Easter eggs.
Tutorial gone BAD! Normally, I’d put them in a bowl on display and take lots of pictures. Not this year …
Easter eggs? What Easter eggs? Pretend you’ve never even seen this post.
–> Think nice, clean, white eggs!
