Happy Monday! This weekend was a whirlwind. We woke up to snow on Friday morning and ended the weekend with 60 degree weather and blue skies with sunshine. It was perfect. I finally feel like spring is in the air. Speaking of spring, Easter is THIS weekend. What?! I finally made my first set of Easter Eggs last week. I shared them over at Creative Home Blog powered by Mohawk Flooring and today I’m sharing them with YOU!

Would you believe I made these Shabby Chic Easter Eggs using a pack of plastic eggs from the dollar store? Well, it’s true! Today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to transform a dollar store item into a cute and inexpensive piece of decor.

 These eggs were easy to make and if you are any bit of a crafty person I’m sure you already have the supplies waiting for you at home!

Supplies Needed:

- Plastic Easter Eggs (I found mine at the Dollar Tree, pack of 6 for a $1)

- Jute (Can easily be found at any craft store and will cost you about $2.99 for a spool)

- Vintage lace, ribbon and buttons for embellishment

- Hot Glue Gun

 I started with a glob of hot glue on the bottom of the egg and then slowly wrapped the jute in a circular motion. My suggestion is to only use a tiny bit of glue and work with a 1″ piece of jute at a time. If you use too much glue it will seep through.

 Once you’ve wrapped the entire egg, it will look a little something like this. You can see some of my hot glue coming through in a few areas. It’s actually pretty easy to pick off, just takes a little extra time :)

 And to top things off, I added a few pieces of vintage ribbon, lace and a jute bow to give it a shabby chic look. I am very fortunate and I actually have all of my grandma’s old ribbon and lace from when she was young. So yes, mine is authentic!

There are so many variations you can do, here are how my three little eggs turned out! I can’t wait to put them on my vignette!

Do you have your Easter decor up already?

    I absolutely LOVE these eggs! I just was wondering what I was going to do with all of the leftover eggs from our little egg hunt, now I know what I will do with them for next year. Thanks for sharing!
