Getting ready for Easter- decorative eggs

I have a craft that I learned how to do when I was about 9 or 10 that I want to show you. (Seriously, I was a weirdo craft-a-holic way back then.) My parents would have to pry me away from any craft. And I couldn't stop, I would get totally obsessed. My mom took me to this lady in Dothan, Alabama who made these beautiful eggs. They are made out of actual hand blown eggs and are meant for a Christmas tree or an Easter tree. I have done both. Anyway,,,,about oh 8 yrs. ago I decided to try my hand at these little egg ornaments again. I had broken my baby toe,,,and I mean where you know you catch it on the door frame? It was sticking out at a 45 degree angle....okay enough of the grossness. Anyway, I couldn't play tennis, so this was the perfect time to try these beautiful little babies again. I ended up making.....yes......144 eggs. I'm really surprised I didn't get salmonella. I am going to make a few this week and will show you how it's done. They are fairly easy, you blow them out, paper mache them cut out the center, paint, and decorate. Even kids will have a fun time doing these. Here are a few of the Christmas and Easter ones I've done.
I'll be back later chickies!!!
