Egg---cuse Me...It's Spring Thyme



March 20th officially announced Spring, but our weather here in Northern Virginia must have missed the memo.  Even if the weather isn't cooperating there is still a breath of Spring in all the posts I have been reading on blogs, Facebook and Hometalk.  Spring pins are flying on Pinterest, all of it has been inspiring me to think Spring projects.

I picked this decorative tricycle up at our local Hobby Lobby.  I decided to use it on my mantle along with some other Spring goodies I pulled out of winter storage.  I picked up a bag of plastic eggs to add to the tricycle basket but wanted to spiff them up so I added all purpose joint compound to the eggs, allowed them to dry, sanded them, painted them and decorated them with ribbons and bows.

I'll enjoy pulling these out each Spring to add to a basket, bowl, or wooden box.

Look at you smartie pants, adding compound to your eggs. That's a great idea. Just more of the artist coming out in you! :) They look wonderful and the tricycle is cute too. I forgot that Easter is so close.

Hugs..Tracy

I like the idea of joint compound to give them a different texture. I did mine in jute.
