Get the look of vintage Easter decor with this simple Altered Easter Egg tutorial.  By taking an old metal egg and transforming it, you can have a beautiful gift or decoration that's perfect for the spring.  This beautiful altered egg makes a wonderful gift for a loved one, and when filled with yummy treats, is also great for kids of all ages.  A little bit of Mod Podge can go a long way with this vintage Easter egg tutorial.

Materials:

  • Metal eggs
  • Spray paint
  • Mod Podge
  • Silver glitter
  • Bow and twine
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Embellishments (feathers, paper roses)

 

Instructions:

  1. I spray painted it to give it a good base coat. I just used a cream color.

  2. After the egg is dry, I covered it with Mod Podge and sprinkled it with a pretty silver glitter from Martha Stewart.  Just choose whatever color pleases you!
     
  3. A double bow on each side and tie it in the middle with twine.  Don't worry if it isn't perfect!

  4. For this egg I did use my glue gun to adhere everything.  I love to layer my embellishments, so this is the order I built this egg in.  First hot glue the bow/twine to the egg.  I glued it a bit off center towards the fattest part of the egg.
     
  5. I cut 3 leaves using my Cricut and the Flower Shoppe cartridge.

  6. I had a few feathers in my stash I knew I wanted to add.....after all it IS an egg! And a few acrylic pieces from Prima.  I like them because they add a subtle look to the egg without overpowering it.

  7. And lastly, I add my flowers.  The flowers are once again from the Sizzix 3-D flowers die.
