The outside of the egg is covered in glitter but it doesn't show up well in the pics. I rimmed mine w/ a crepe paper ruffle & then added a piece of grungy, coffee dyed pink ribbon & lace. For the bases, I used a glittered up tart tin but had some technical difficulties in glueing the egg on. So I wound a ring of tulle on the tart tin & glued the egg to the tulle. It's pretty solid now!
For the inside, I made a bunny out of chenille stems.
This is Connor's egg...didn't he do a good job? Hard to believe that my all-boy, race car-loving, football-playing grandson can design & create something so lovely, huh? The only decision I made for him was to use the tart tin base & I talked him into rimming it w/ tulle. Which he later agreed was a nice touch.
I have to share what he said while we were making them (and I quote) "I think I'm gonna interject some color in mine since all your artwork is old & crusty looking." LOL He says that like it's a bad thing! *grins* I reminded him that my style is old, crusty & sparkly. ;)
He chose vintage wallpaper to line the back of the inside.
Adding a dolled up a tree w/ easter eggs & a porcelain boy bunny, offering an egg. It's appropriate since he is making this shadowbox egg has a gift for his mom.
I'd also like to share the mini-Easter baskets all the grands made for their mom. We started off w/ nut cups...some chose a neutral & some chose silver. For this project, Connor said he was going to go w/ my "old & crusty style". I told him not to forget "sparkly". ;) From left to right it's Connor's (he did nail "my" style...the only thing I would have changed would be to omit the pink gems), Caeden's, Caralyn's & Coleson's.
Caralyn chose a sugar bunny to decorate her's with & Coleson wanted a fuzzy chick.
