Scrambled or Sunny Side Up?...

First, I'm going to admit that I didn't work on my "Chocolate Bunnies
Table Topper" yesterday. Nope. Just didn't have that kind of concentration.
So, I played with eggs instead. Really. I'm going to tell you all about it!
I've had these little papier mache gems for over a year. I have moved
 them from drawer to cabinet because I couldn't decide what I wanted
 to do with them...until yesterday. I had one of those proverbial  "aha"
moments and decided to do something about it on the spot.
I got out my big bottle of PVA Glue from my book-making days
 (and because I didn't have any ModPodge), fabrics from my table
runner project, a brush and those eggs. I decided to cover them.
I put some of the glue into a little dish, cut the fabrics into scraps
and laid out a piece of freezer paper, shiny-side-up. I applied glue to
the surface of the eggs and then laid the fabric scraps on them to 
completely cover the eggs. When a piece of fabric was applied, I covered
it with more glue. Once the egg was completely covered, I set it aside
on the wax paper to let it dry. *PVA glue dries clear. It was that easy!
I'll set the finished table runner on our dining room table, and scatter
 the eggs on it with more Easter-themed touches. Won't they be fun?
(I might even have to go out and find a few more!)
