Vintage Book Page Eggs

You’ve probably seen before that I like vintage book pages.  I’ve made party buntings, even a table runner, and covered little birds with them.  I thought it would be cute to decoupage vintage book pages onto Easter Eggs.  They go quite nicely with my Chalkboard Eggs this year.  I’m kind of going for a neutral palette this year, just a little change from the traditional pastels that usually accompany Easter decor.

I used Mod Podge, paper mache eggs (from Michaels), and a couple vintage books from a thrift store.  I chose 3 different books to use because they had varying shades of cream and tan and I liked the effect that this gave.

I simply covered the egg with Mod Podge, using a paint brush.  Then tore up little pieces of the book pages and layered them on the egg, making sure to put a generous amount of Mod Podge over each layer.  And the great thing is that they will last forever and I can pull them out year after year.

When I put it all together, I think I’ll need to include some burlap.  Maybe in the form of a table runner or a Happy Easter bunting.

How are you decorating for Easter this year?  What’s got your fancy or is inspiring you this season?

    The little chick is from World Market. I got them there a couple of years ago. They came in a package of 1 dozen. Cute right?
