Eggstra...Eggstra Cute Eggs!

This is another super cute idea from kmckaydesigns I have been dying to make these!  I finally did it!  I dug out all my plastic Easter eggs that I have had from the previous years and got started. 
What you'll need is:

-Plastic Eggs
-Jute
-Glue Gun
-Spray paint

You start by putting a dot of glue on the tip of the egg, stick the end of your jute on it and start winding around the egg adding a dab of glue every so often. When they are done. Paint. Wait...and then you can find something cute to put them in. I found my basket at a thrift store for $.75 and then spray painted it white.
If you go to her website she has a great tutorial.
This is what they looked like before paint...

                                            

                                                      

            All Painted! What do you think?
