Needless to say, I never had a sugar egg in my Easter basket. Not one to ever give up...I decided to create my own version. Mom was right, I did not need, do not need that much sugar. So I have created a faux sugar egg.
No calories or dental visits need bother you on this beauty.
To begin I bought a paper mache egg from Hobby Lobby.
I cut a hole in it, leaving the opening for the future scene.
I then painted the egg with acrylic paints.
I then painted our little egg with white glue
and sprinkled clear glitter on her as a nod to the sugar.
I then took some joint compound,
added my choice of acrylic paint to color it.
I then hot glued some green excelsior in the bottom of the egg.
I looked to the Graphic Fairy again for inspiration for the inside scene.
I found this cute picture that I thought would look
precious inside my faux sugar egg.
I had originally thought I would just cut this out and place
it inside the egg. It looked a bit flat. So I decided that
I would just recreate the pic.
I found similar flowers and hot glued them inside.
I then hollowed out a small styrofoam egg,
painted it and hot glued it inside.
I could never find a chick that I liked.
So I created one from polymer clay.
After baking, the chick was ready for the egg.
I simply hot glued the little guy in the scene.
The faux sugar egg was done.
Nope, it doesn't taste as good as I am sure a real
sugar egg would taste, but I think it is just as pretty!
You should really try to make one for yourself. It was
super easy and it fulfilled a childhood wish for me. :)
I hope your Sunday has been blessed! Let's make this week a great one, getting ready for all the fun and beauty of Easter. Take some time to thank God for His blessings!
barbwired blessings to all of you!
