Easter Eggs...From Plastic to FANTASTIC!

HEEEEY Ladies!!! 

 Its Monday....the kids are back in school from Spring Break, and as you saw on my last post...IM SAAAAAAAAAADDD!   I CRIED yesterday!
  Get a GRIP Kara...REALLY!  It was just so nice to have them home with me all week {Uuuhhh, MOST of the time...GASP!}  There were a few moments of ...
"MOM...Brogan did this" ..."Well because Kolton did that"..."NO I did'nt"..."YES he DID"...
Ya'll get the picture!!!  BUT...98% was all GOOD!  Now...Im a little LONELY!  Did I just say that OUT LOUD???  Im gonna have to adjust back to Pre Spring Break...Im sure it will come back in a few moments...{ Insert JEOPARDY music...do do do doo, do do dooo.....} 
 Uuuummm...OK!  I think Im BACK to Normal...which in MY case NORMAL is a bit ABNORMAL....Am I makin any sence to anybody???  If you have been coming here for a while, I KNOW you Hear what Im sayin...or, Smell what Im steppin in....HUH?   JK!   Are yall LOST YET???  OMGosh!!!  Get Kara her MEDS!  Im switchin gears so fast yall are gonna get WHIPLASH!!!   LOL!   Sorry...I havent been around ADULTS for, like, 10 FULL DAYS!!!!   Eeekk!   Adults NEED other ADULTS to be around...otherwise, THIS is what ya get!  And, really...even MORE...Women...We NEED other WOMEN...we are like hair... we NEED other HAIR to be around to feel better...can't talk to the Hubs like I can with my GUUUURRRRLZZZ!  The Hub just is NOT the same...He comes in from work and is ready to sit QUIETLY....aaaaand, HELLEEERRR!  I need to talk!  I need to talk about what happened that day, how I need my HOOCHIE nails REDONE, the PROJECTS I have been workin on...
OOH!  On that note....Let me share a PROJECT!!!  YAAAAAAAAAY!!!

WARNING!!!
I had planned to share a different project today {1 out of about 800 I have goin on}...
but CONSIDERING that Easter is our next important Holiday...and CONSIDERING the CONSIDERABLE amount of time THIS project is taking...I CONSIDERED sharing this one sooner....
SO!  All things CONSIDERED....I decided to be CONSIDERATE and here it is...
WHEW!



I bought a few bags of these GOOD OLE plastic eggs...
YEAH!  I said several...{this will matter here in a sec}



Got em at Michaels...CHEAP! CHEAP!



And I had this GRAND IDEA to WRAP the eggs to look like "Silk"....there were Yellow, Orange, Green,
Blue, Pink and Purple in each bag...So I went over to the Yarns section and ended up buying "Embroidery Floss", and some "Cashmere" {fuzzy} yarn...Embroidery Floss for each color egg...



The eggs were in Pastel-ish colors....I dont normally do pastels, but Easter is the time to BREAK em OUT!



Open each egg, and cut the little Connect-ee Thingy in half....



See...THAT thingy....Now take the scizzors and CUT IT OFF ...




Then use some glue...I used GOOD OLE Elmers...{I actually applied the glue with a small paint brush}
Just dipped the brush in the glue and brushed it on...it goes on evenly this way...



Glue the 2 halves together and wipe off the excess....



NOW....This is where the WARNING comes in....And the GRUELING detailed work begins...Im SMILING :)   HeeHeeHee....EEEEEKKKK!
Get your Embroidery Floss and get one end ready to glue to the TOP of the egg....TIP!  This is where you might want to go make one of my V,V,V,M,L concoctions....For anyone who is NEW here {Hello}...
That stands for a Venti Vodka Vallium Mocha Latte Beverage....

{I dont REALLY drink that...not that I RECALL anyway...HA!}


OR...just go DIG through your Medicine cabninet, and LOOK FOR A VALLIUM...any kind of Anti-Anxiety will be GREAT :-O
Get the one end glued to the tip aaaaaand, sssssllooooooowlllyy {Slowly} start applying glue and wrapping the floss around and around and around and around and around...This will go on fooorrr EVER!!!



Around and around and around...



and around and around and around...EEEKKK!  Just typing this is making me DIZZY!!!   Now, I need VERTIGO Meds!!!!



And your are gonna feel like "Surely Im DONE with this ONE EGG"...until you pull back and look at it, and your about HALFWAY done...



SO!  Continue wrapping....ONWARD lil SOLDIERS!!!
Getting there...



AND...DONE!   Well, with this "Style"...Im doing like 3 different Egg wrapping styles...SHEESH!
Heres my OCD...AGAIN!!!



Im about to start in with the "Cashmere Yarn"....



But first...Wrapping ALL 6 COLORS with the Floss...3 of EACH COLOR egg...thats 18 to be EXACT!
Lord HELP ME!!!  Just so you will know, I have been working on these ALL SPRING BREAK....
{Insert JAWS Music here} Duna, Duna, DunaDunaDuna....
 WooHooo...On to PURPLE....{Insert a few HOURS here}



 Now Paaaaaank!!!



BaaaaLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



HELLER....Now YELLER!!!!!!!!!!!!



And FINALLY....Orange!!!    ORANGE you glad we SURVIVED to make it to Orange...OK!  I KNOW...That was a lil CORNEY!



Now get the Cashmere yarn ready to go...



And do the SAME EXACT THING with the FUZZY STUFF!   This part is a LOT more forgiving and quicker....YAAAAAY!!



Just keep Gluing and wrapping...



Wrap them to the very bottom so that there is no Plastic showing...



So THIS is what the FINISHED Egg should look like!  Isnt it PURDY!!!!




Im in LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURVE with them!!  For the LOVE of PETE, I better be!



Just some more pics to show the process....
Ooooh Eeeemm Geeee....How IS IT I get myself into these situations....I BRING it on MYSELF!!!  My OCD is CLEARLY showing!!!!



Excuse me while I go make another V, V, V, M, L Bev.............

SO....I have got ALL of this style made and FINISHED!!!  YAAAY!
HOWEVER...I have 2 other styles I am STILL working on!!!!   Uuuuuuhhhh, YEAH....Like REALLY??




Bought some CHEAP clay pots that me and my lil  "Sweat Shop Gal" ...Daughter helped me paint white...



I LOVE these lil ones!



Heres MY LIL Cutie Patootie!!!!
POSING.....



Painting....



Painting....



Mommas painting the Biggun
These pots will come into play when ALL THE EGGS ARE DONE!!!!!!!!!!!



And she is VERY INVOLVED in her painting!



SO!  There you have it!  I have a FEELING this project is going to Play out Like that T.V. series {from when I was young} I think it was called "Roots"....GASP!  It took FOREVER to be OVER!

But seriously...The Eggs are turning out Go-Jus!  They are WELL WORTH the effort!!!   Just be PREPARED!

This is why I decided to Bump this post WAAAY up to Today....You should have PLENTY of time to get started and finish well ahead of  Easter!   Just grab your purse and get in your car, like NOW and head out to go buy all the stuff!

I will show more posts as this project comes together...

OK all you Decorating Divas...get to Wrapping!!!

Have a BLESSED DAY!  xoxokara

Theresa said...

Okay gotta shower first then, I'll be getting into my car to go get Easter Eggs and stuff. That is such a cute idea I can't wait to get started on it. And I know what you're talking about when you said "you have 800 projects going on".

Peace, Love & Decorate
Theresa

LC said...

These are looking pretty cute! I can't wait to see the finished project.
You come up with the cutest ideas!

ourlifeinaclick.blogspot.com said...

You and your eggs. haha!! :) They are coming out absolutely stunning for sure but do look like a lot of work and patience. Your lil' helper is too cute!! Enjoy your time today, i know how you miss them when they go back to school though.

Tammy @ Type A said...

love the eggs, but how long did one take you? can't wait to see the finished product! xx

Wendy @ Ramblings from the Sunshine State said...

I can't wait to see the end result!

At The Picket Fence said...

Seriously "cracking" up (get my pun?) that you said, "orange you glad..." LOL! Oh, and also hoochie nails! :-) You have a gift my friend...not only for being hilarious...but also making these gorgeous projects and your creativity seem so approachable. Thanks for a great start to the morning!

Karen said...

They look great Kara, and your little helper is to cute.

Peggy said...

These are adorable! Wish I had your patience, but I don't. My eggs unfortuantely are just the plain ole plastic ones--for shame! Peggy

Marianne said...

Since I have hundreds of these things sitting my attic I might give this one a try....if I can find the patience! They came out great, can't wait to see what your doing with the little pots!

The Decorative Dreamer said...

How cute is this! It looks fairly simple too but Oh, the patience it must take! OMG! Your little helper is a cutie for sure! I would much rather take the painting part! I cannot wait to see more! Great idea!

Theresa said...

That is such a cute idea! I love them, I just don't know if I would have the patients to finish them all!:)

Liz said...

What a FABULOUS idea. I never would have come up with an cute idea like that! I can't wait to see the final project. We all know you have patience, because look at all those long and tedious painting projects you've accomplished. You do them so FAST, too! Looks like you are getting those eggs done fast, as well...that would take me ALL DAY! lol!

I just saw your post below of your kiddos and they are just PRECIOUS!!

Have a great day! XOXO ~Liz

Gypsy Heart said...

Well, girlfriend, this one I will sit out! :-) I used to have a lot of patience like this but not so much right now. I can only imagine how go-jus your final showing will be! Of course, your helper is totally adorable.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

You win the prize for the most patience this week!!! What are you doing with the pots???????

queenbee1994 said...

What a creative idea? The eggs went from plastic to posh! Thanks for sharing.

Jemsmom said...

You deserve a big glass o' wine!!! That was tedious work, but with a cute helper like that... :-)

Becca said...

What a great project. Although, I'd need meds and wine to get through it. :) Your helper is precious. I look forward to seeing your ca-ute and colorful (and fuzzy) eggies! Hugs, Becca

NanaDiana said...

Okay- I am DEFINITELY NOT doing these. Uh...I have laundry to wash and dry and meals to cook and kids to tend...uh...but they sure are cute. The tutorial is so much nicer now that you have your floozie nails on I must say! WhatEVER made you think of wrapping eggs with floss? Are you crazy, or what? Don't answer that- no need... Okay- back to work for me now. I think I will wrap some pens in yarn for something fun to do...Oh shoot! I forgot my glue...AND my yarn...guess the patients will just have to use regular old pens~ sigh- life just isn't fair!!! xxoo Diana

Allyson Pecilunas said...

They look so cute Kara!! What a great idea!! I dont know if I have the patience for that though lol!

Jodie said...

Kara,

These eggs are so adorable and chic!

Warm Wishes,
Jodie

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Those are adorable! Like everyone else, I don't have the patience. I admire you for being able to work at something so tedious. Happy Spring!

Marlie @ Crafting, Cooking, and Cats said...

Thanks for visiting! I'm following you, too! I think I may have to make one of your special drinks. lol! Those eggs are DARLING! I'm to impatient for all that! You're a better woman than I, for sure!

CREATIVE MIND said...

Oh My God..you did an awesome job but what a strong patient you have..awesome!!!cute..

Wendy@Once upon a rose haven said...

It is nice to meet you, I'm your newest follower. What a beautiful project, can't wait to see the final results! So adorable!!!
Have a lovely spring!
~*~Wendy~*~

Prairie Patch said...

These are so cute!! I've seen these with twine wrapped around them, but this gives such a stylish (as opposed to rustic) touch. Love the fuzzy cashmere touch.

Cheers,
Tracy All Thumbs Crafts

ReFresh ReStyle said...

Love your eggs and your helper! I love this time of year!

A Perfect Setting said...

Great idea! Eggs look adorable! (Not as cute as your daughter)...I must say, you have a lot of patience. Can't wait to see them all finished and in the pot!!

⚜ ↁℯℬℬᴵℰ⚜ said...

Rita said...

Slave Labor!!! You are forcing my little angel to doing SLAVE LABOR!! I can see how unhappy, mistreated, bored, etc. she is. I think she needs a good dose of coming to Nana's house. My poor little angel...doing slave labor.
In spite of mistreating my cute little grand, I still love you. Mom

Jen said...

So great! I can't believe you had the patience to do that, but they look beautiful. Oh, and I totally feel you on the pastel thing, but I break it out for Easter too. :)

Each credit is assessed independently to discover the soundness of the proposition and at exactly that point a choice to give an advance is taken. Getting of security for advances is one of the shields that Banks exercise to secure their interests. payday loans corona
