Pop Art Photo Easter Eggs

I don’t typically do Easter eggs!  It’s been a long time since I have…probably since I was a kid.  So this year I saw all kinds of crazy tutorials of people doing cool things with eggs and I had to get in on the action!  I decided to do fun photo eggs and amp them up by making them colorful in a pop art style!

I simply started out by printing black and white images onto my laserjet and sizing them to fit my plastic eggs.  This took a couple printouts to get them the right size, but no big deal.

I next went in and used my Tulip Fabric Markers that I had on hand to fill in my black and white images.  I’ve been doing this since I was in 6th grade. I always love how you can jazz up black and white images with markers…especially the neon variety.

I next cut out my image. Admittedly, this picture is really ridiculous!  I say, the more ridiculous, the better!  That is what makes for a more memorable project!

 

I used some Collage Pauge decopauge medium on the front and back of my image and let it dry.  I am messy and use my finger over a foam brush or a paintbrush.  This is guerilla crafting, y’all!

Look how cute they turned out.  This is my little family, minus the new bearded dragons and our two fish. LOL.  They aren’t perfect, they wrinkled in some areas, but I’m ok with that.
 

This is definitely a bad egg. LOL. Dexter has been such a brat chasing Pixie and attacking my feet when they stick out from the covers.

Until next time Swellions!

Easy Rhinestone Easter Eggs

These might just be the easist Easter eggs to make on the planet! And they are so, so sparkly and super fun for a little centerpiece or to display as an easy d├ęcor accent.

You just need some inexpensive plastic Easter eggs and some stick-on rhinestones!  I liked this super pretty set from the Target craft aisle.  Other than that, you need to arrange the rhinestones in a pattern around your egg in color or shape order.  You could also mix it up and do all of one size of rhinestone or apply the rhinestones like polka dots. It’s up to you and your creativity!

I did end up using the rhinestones pretty fast and kinda wish I got another set. Just an FYI if you plan on making quite a few.

I decided to set mine on a bed of glitter paper!  I think these could also look pretty on a glitter dish or in a glitter accented jar.  I’m not sure I can handle all the bling!  It’s giving my eyes sparkle overload!!

Until next time Swellions!
