Denim Easter Egg Crafts
"Fancy something a bit different this Easter why not go for a rustic look with these upcycled denim Easter eggs. This a really simple and quick craft for all ages. It practically costs nothing to make as you use waste material. I told you it was easy. These eggs do have an sort of rustic feel to them and make for a great easter decoration. They would also be great for an easter egg hunt. They should keep for years, even if you used real egg shells as the glue and fabric would have strengthened them."
