I'm a SAHM to four of the cutest munchkins. I've been married to an amazing husband and father for nine wonderful and busy years. I love discovering new talents and hobbies and I really enjoy a good creative challenge.
Remember a couple of posts back when I showed you some great springtime inspiration from Pottery Barn? Well I finally got around to replicating that gorgeous glass vase with quail eggs. I started with some paper mache eggs that I got at Michaels (6 for 1.99). I painted them with some blue craft paint and then used a toothbrush that dear hubby had just thrown away to splatter them with some dark brown craft paint. I'll be honest, it took me back to being a kid when we would "spritz" ourselves with water from our toothbrushes. Kinda gross now, but it was fun as a kid. Once they were dry I just tossed a little moss into the bottom of my glass vase and piled the eggs on top. Since I had everything but the eggs this only cost me $1.99. Much better than PB's $43.00 for the vase and egg filler. So thanks PB for some great inspiration.
I only wish I had of painted then a tad darker, but I'm happy with them.
