Ta da!

Well here it is! Here is that egg carton makeover I promised. What do you think? I actually decided to keep it simple. You should have seen what I was going to put around it. Lol! A feather boa was just a bit much....so I punched two holes on either end and tied simple black bows through the holes. I also decorated the tips of each, hmmm....what do you call it? Cone? Raised area? I don't know. Anyway, I simply dotted them with black jewels. I am really happy how it turned out!



I simply performed a little paper mache magic with decorative tissue paper all over the carton and added the ribbon and jewels. You know me and simple! I think I may need to make another with that other carton in the fridge. Well, once I use my eggs. :)

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Michelle~ this was "Eggcellant!" I think this would be a fantastic project to try. I agree the Boa feathers may have been a tad much.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
