A Variety of Handmade Easter Eggs

I used the 2 piece plastic eggs I found in my attic, but the dollar store has this for cheap if you don't have any. 

Egg #1
 I used Pebeo paints and dripped different colors down the sides egg. Of course I did the two sides separately so it would stay put, no balancing acts

Front side

 Back side

Egg #2
I wrapped & glued (Ilene's tacky glue) variegated yarn around a plastic egg.

Egg #3 
I found a bag of Styrofoam eggs (I think at Hobby Lobby or Michael's, I like both stores equally). I decided to paint a metallic purple color on the entire egg just in case the sequin didn't cover the white Styrofoam so it didn't look weird if it showed thru. Let it dry. Then used sequin and sequin pins in random places covering the entire egg. 

Egg #4, may favorite. :o)

Gift bag decorated

Monogram Bathroom towels embroidery gift

My attempt at a nice elegant towel set for a couple without being too fru-fru & not plain. I used espresso colored thread because their bathroom is camel color. I embroidered the first letter of each's first name. I find it more personal than using the couples last name sometimes. Hope they like it!
