It has been a rare event for me to do any crafting lately. But I managed to whip up a batch of primitive painted eggs this past weekend. When I mentioned it in my previous post, some of my blogging friends requested a photo. I’m happy to oblige!
The paper mache eggs are available this time of year at your local craft stores. It doesn’t take a lot of skill, time, or expense to do these. With a little supervision, it would be a good project for children or grandchildren too. Thanks to the countless acrylic paints available, you can customize your colors. I have previously painted some in muted pastels. I got a hankering to paint this latest batch in a neutral buttermilk color. I also used a light hand with the sanding so that they would compliment a cottage décor. You can easily vary the amount of distressing.
I pinned a tutorial on my Pinterest site, but HERE is a convenient link it you want to try making these. As a final touch, I sprayed the eggs with a satin polyurethane spray. This step is not mentioned in the linked instructions.
