*Updated: Ooops, I totally forgot to mention that I used Mod Podge for both these projects! Many of you might already know this, but in case you don't, Mod Podge (found at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.) is a decoupage, gluey kind of liquid that you brush lightly onto both sides of a piece of paper, and then just wrap the paper around the object you want to cover. You just kind of keep mushing the paper down until it stays where you want it. Then the whole thing dries hard and clear. Messy but worth it! I am sorry I left you high and dry on the how-to part!
So here's the story. A few days ago I felt Hobby Lobby calling to me. It had been three months, and I think it missed me. So I wandered in and managed to locate the 80% off Easter stuff right away! Go figure. But I scored seven of these oversized Easter eggs for about 60 cents apiece. Yippee! (The bananas and apples weren't part of it.)
I found this cardboard bunny too. Also 80% off. Nina was a fan.
Don't know if it was the 80% off or just being overwhelmed at finding myself in a Hobby Lobby, but I found my inspiration again! So I headed over to the scrapbook paper section, actually paid full price because I was that whooped up, and bought some cute paper. A few days later, Nina's new favorite bunny has a whole new wardrobe! Toile and apple green grosgrain never looked so good on a bunny!
The monstrous eggs? Well, they are super cute and definitely feel better with some new clothes.
OK, I know Easter is over. You all are way past the Easter decorations. But I figure that we need these ideas now when everything is on sale! Who wants to be inspired when we have to pay full price? The total cost of the egg makeover was $8 and the bunny was about $3. Love it!
Plus, I am begging you to humor this girl! I am a sad, stay-at-home, puke-covered mother of two who needs to feel like she still has some life left in her...
I hope you have a great weekend, and I will be back with some more [fun?] stuff next week!
