Pinterest Challenge: Book Page Easter Eggs

UPDATE:See what I added to the spring wreath here.

I've accepted the challenge of Katie Bower to complete a pinned project and blog about it. I love participating in the Pinterest Challenges (which are not sponsored by Pinterest in any form or fashion).

For this edition of the Pinterest Challenge, I decided to conquer the book page covered Easter Egg (Pin found here). Lemon Tree Creations had great instructions...and this made an excellent project for me to work on while catching up on some Masterpiece Classic via PBS.

I purchased three dozen plastic Easter eggs for Dollar General for $1 per dozen. Using the pages from a book I had picked up from the free bin at McKay's, I wrapped the eggs in the paper with Modge Podge. (I'd also like to add that I have started making my own Modge Podge - equal parts water and regular school glue do the trick! And it's way cheaper.)

I found it best to wait until the glue had dried to continue on. This prevents the egg from sliding around while you're trying to fix the ends. Once the eggs have dried. cut the ends into small strips.

Using your fingers and lots of Modge Podge, smooth each strip onto the egg.  Side Note: If you are not a fan of glue all over your warned. It's necessary for a good looking egg! And it'll wash off.

In no time at all, I had completed enough eggs to begin sprinkling them around the house. I've never been a big fan of pastel colors in my decorating - and that fact alone makes it a little difficult to decorate for Easter. But this idea is the perfect solution to my dilemma.

After shredding some of my 1000 $5 dime wrappers (read about that challenge here), I had the perfect rustic grass.

I have them hidden all over the vases, in baskets, and even on my front door. I attached a few eggs to a grapevine wreath using a little hot glue.
