Aren’t these fresh eggs decor adorable from We Craft Around on Youtube? These are the perfect farmhouse display and just timely as Easter is just around the corner. So if you still don’t have anything to do on the weekend, gather your friends and get crafty with this little project. Watch the video below to learn the step-by-step instructions.
- egg shape cutout
- farm fresh stencil
- Spanish moss
- 12 craft sticks
- four wooden beads
- half-round beads
- eight foam eggs
- home decor wax
- white glue
- chalk paint (plaster, hazelnut, and sandstone)
- hot glue
- gorilla glue
Start by brushing the egg shape cutout with home decor wax and blending it in with a baby wipe. Let it dry, then brush it next with white glue. While the glue is still wet, paint it with plaster chalk paint. Let it dry completely. Next, paint four of the foam eggs with hazelnut chalk paint and the rest with sandstone chalk paint. (You can put them in a skewer so it8217;s easy to paint them).
Next, take the craft sticks and cut them in half, then cut them to look like a picket fence. After this, glue them all on the tray. (10 pieces on the front and 7 on both sides). Glue four wooden beads to the four corners of the bottom of the tray for the stand. Next, place down half-round beads on a piece of painter8217;s tape and paint them with two coats of plaster chalk paint as well as the tray.
After drying, place the half-round beads around the edge of the egg cutout. (Don8217;t do the bottom as the tray will cover it). After the beads are glued down, dab some home decor wax on the beads as well as on the tray. Took the farm fresh sign, place it on the egg, tape it on position, and lightly dabbed on the black acrylic paint. After this, glue the tray down on the egg shape using gorilla glue. To finish, fill the tray with Spanish moss and put the foam eggs.
