Now that Valentine’s Day is behind us, I know that Easter will be here before we know it (especially since it is coming early this year)! This week I’m feeling pretty crafty and have decided to make a few Spring/Easter themed crafts all using one of my favorite elements: moss. I just love the look of moss in home decor. The texture, the color; it is vibrant, timeless, and oh so appealing to me. I hope you will find it interesting too, because it’s going to be our theme all week. Yep, a week’s worth of moss crafts is coming your way, and today we begin with how to make moss covered eggs.
At this time of year there seems to be an overabundance of plastic eggs rolling around my house. And while they are fun for my daughter to hunt in the yard, I typically don’t have much other use for them, until now! A little bit of mod podge and some moss and poof! instant Spring decor.
This is really such a simple craft, all you do is heavily coat the plastic egg with glue and then press on moss. That’s it. It takes minutes and you end up with this:
Tip: I heavily coated my eggs with glue, pressed the moss on, and then let it sit for a few minutes. Then, I pressed again to help mold the moss to the egg shape. This kept the moss from sticking to my hands – something that at first seemed to keep happening because I had bits of glue on my hands.
Placed in a small bowl, the eggs immediately take on the air of a pretty nest, especially when paired with a petite concrete bird perched on top. It’s a simple scene that has a fresh spring essence to it. Little touches like this make it easy to freshen up my home decor for the season without spending loads of time or money. A perfect combination, wouldn’t you agree?!
Thank you so much for reading. I hope you like this DIY moss covered egg craft and feel inspired to try it, and please stay tuned for tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some moss artwork. ‘Til then…
