Easy Easter Decor, 5 minute Easter Decoration, Crochet Easter Eggs, Shabby Chic Easter EggsWith all the thrift store shopping that I do, I often find old doilies that are stained, torn, ripped or otherwise, cast-off. I have a growing collection of them… I like finding creative ways to give them new life – since Easter is all about new life, this is a perfect craft for this season.

Sometimes you can get the stains out but other times, they just won't budge.

Here are the supplies you need:

Decorative eggs – I got mine at Target but I found these wooden eggs on Amazon (affiliate link) which would be great.
Crochet lace doilies – you can also buy doilies in large quantities on Amazon (affiliate link)
Pen for marking the doily
Scissors
Low-temperature glue gun (affiliate link)
