  • Metal eggs

  • Mod Podge

  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.
