Burlap and chalkboard Easter eggs

I love dying Easter eggs with my kids. Now that I am a mom, it’s one of those moments in life where I can be creative like a kid and get away with it. The only thing I hate is the fact that they never last. Sometimes I feel like I have created a masterpiece, and then 3 days later my masterpiece is in bits and pieces in the trash.

It’s no secret that I love burlap (hence the blog name), and I can name at least 3 things that are covered in chalkboard paint in my house. So naturally, I decided to try Easter eggs covered in burlap and chalkboard paint. And the best part is – they will last year after year.

Burlap Eggs

Supplies needed:

Paper mache eggs

Burlap (I used the kind that comes on a roll)

Hot glue gun

Hot glue sticks

eggs 1

1.) Cut burlap into half inch wide strips, make sure they are long enough to wrap the egg lengthwise.

2.) Place a dot of hot glue on the bottom of the egg and wrap strips all the way around securing with more glue.

(I rotate using the glue on the top for one and then the bottom each time.)

Chalkboard Paint Eggs

Supplies:

Wooden Eggs

Chalkboard paint (I used the spray kind)

1.) Spray the eggs and let dry, use several coats.

I played around with using both the chalkboard paint and burlap together for texture.
