EGG-citing Easter Crafts!

Do you know what happens when you cut a paper mache egg in half? Yes, I know you get two halves! Do you know what is inside a paper mache egg when you cut it in half? There is a plastic egg in there! Did you know that? I didn't. I thought they were solid paper! Anyway, I cut one in half, and made two little decorations.
I am calling this first project Betty McBunny and Her Flowercart! The wheels on her cart are actually buttons. She's built up some big muscles on her bunny arms by pulling that cart!

This one I have named Little Purple Chick In An Egg. Don't be jealous. I'm sure you can think of great names for your projects too!

And this shadowbox I have named Easter Bunny In The Land Of The Giant Pink Mushrooms!
The sun has been shining for two days straight, and I am positively giddy! There is definitely something to be said for the vitamin D that the sun provides us. I hope the sun is shining in your little part of the world too!

I bet the plastic eggy guts were to give the paper mache egg SHAPE while it dried.

I love this little projects you come up with Carol. Great ideas for my daughter to keep her busy.

Loved your little Irish tablecloth in the Rednesday post. The red in it is a surprise.

Your Walmart doesn't have fabric anymore? Ours still does. Maybe because there's only one other fabric store in our town.

Glad you enojoyed your sunshine!

I thought you wouldn't be able to top the Betsy McBunny name, but then you came up with Purple Chick in Egg - you've outdone yourself, once again, my dear.
