Forsythia


Here's my little quicky-project today:
Made these eggs to hang on some pretty yellow forsythia branches~~
I bought several vintage postcards recently for 1.50 each and copied the images to make the vintage~Easter~eggs.



Then using one of those plastic eggs (comes apart--use 1/2 as a pattern to trace the egg shape on the image)~~also traced out egg shape onto thin styrofoam (cardstock would work too)~~
Then~~mod-podged images onto egg shape styro; hot-glued some trim around the edge~~
Leave enough of the trim to tie onto the branch.



I used different images to both sides of the egg~~



Simple, but kinda sweet too.  Today was flea market at local mall~~I got home too late to take pictures of some of my bargains, but will do that later this weekend. 
May I tempt you to come back and see??  I found pretty china plates, antique jar with bale wire, Westmoreland plate (for 1.00---soooo happy about that!) and some silver goodies. 

Have a great and fun weekend!

I'm sending this over to:
