Altered Easter Eggs

  Hello!  Just a quick little upload of some eggs I altered the other day.  I plan on adding these to my Easter decor (no, I still haven't decorated yet! LOL) I 'rustically' covered some plastic eggs with gold and silver leaf.  I'm practicing a bit for an upcoming project where I will be covering our bedside lamps with some silver leaf.  This stuff is CRAZY to work with!!

  I also covered some eggs with some vintage-looking paper from my scrapbooking stash (I think it is K&Co).  The paper was almost too high quality and thick.  The Mod Podge made it a little more malleable, but not much.  I didn't exactly get the look I was going for.  But, it's good enough for who it's for ;)

  Finally, I covered some MORE eggs with some white(ish) buttons that I had leftover from a project I did for Christmas.  Maybe I'll show it to you someday!  I only burnt myself three times with the hot glue gun!!  I plan on removing all of the glue boogers before I display these at home....they are EVERYWHERE!
 Thanks for looking!  Now, go alter some eggs!!
