Paper Mache Eggs {All About Easter}

I'm so excited to introduce you to today's guest, though I am sure you have heard about her before. Michelle has a super fun blog name A Little Tipsy.  If you check it out and get stuck there for awhile..don't blame me, I'm simply warning you now. You will find all sort of fun projects, DIY's, and free printables. Here is Michelle:

Hi there! I am so excited to be on Kiki Creates today! I about died when I saw her ruffled duvet cover and then I spotted the felt laptop and knew we just had to be friends!

I'm Michelle from...

I am a SAHM of two boys (3 and 5 months) who has a love for cereal treats, nutella, and bargain shopping. Swing by to find projects you can do during nap time for less cash than lunch out. I love to share all things home decor, organization, and holiday so I am thrilled to be a part of "All About Easter!"

Today, I am sharing my Paper Mache Eggs which were born from a craft cabinet full of random stuff and a quickly approaching guest post deadline. ;) Gotta love a good de-stash project.

I wanted an Easter display minus the pastel color scheme, so I went with a dark purple, silver, and green.

Wanna know the secret ingredient? Water balloons. You heard me. Blow them up to the size of a large plastic egg, tie a knot and cut off the tail. Then, mix some Elmer's with water, dip your paper strips, cover your "egg"and dry. Easy as that!

Stop by and get the full tutorial for the paper mache balloon eggs and pedestals.

There's even a free "I Know That my Redeemer Lives" egg printable to go along with them.

Thanks for letting me join the party, I can't wait to see the rest!

Water balloons..isn't that so fun! I need to go and get some NOW!:) Thanks so much, Michelle for a fun project...and I love that printable too!
