My favorite thrift store is about 30 minutes away, takes cash only, and is open Monday thru Friday (sometimes). It is hard to visit but treasures abound. It is not fancy or clean. Quite the contrary, it is musty and dark. I came across vintage floral pillow cases in the back corner for .50 each, and promptly purchased for a future project.
The thrifted pillow cases inspired today's post. This was my first try at decoupaging eggs with fabric. The result is fun and colorful and all together unique!
Upcycled Pillow Case Easter Eggs
Fabric scraps and/or thin pillow cases
Mod Podge (affl. link)
Eggs (I used boiled eggs, what I had on hand! If you plan to display the eggs for weeks I suggest using plastic or paper mache eggs)
Cut strips of fabric. Do not worry about rough edges or keeping pieces square. Smaller pieces tend to lay more easily. Brush glue on backside of fabric and lay over egg. Brush additional glue over top of fabric to seal. Layer the fabric with glue piece by piece, covering all parts of the egg.
I love the finished result! I already owned the glue and pink fabric, so this project cost $1 to make.
They would look beautiful displayed in a bowl or on a cake stand. And this would definitely be a family friendly project (keeping in mind that glue is messy!) Happy Crafting!
