Day #2 Lady Bug Eggs

Luck Be A Lady TooooooooNightttttttt.......
Sorry couldn't resist that one......
Yes, It's Day #2 of our Crazy Egg Marathon!
Martha did some really cute red little lady bug eggs that we just had to try!
We had picked up some of this paper recently hoping to have a use for it.
And yes, the colors just screamed Easter so we just had to use these colors instead!
Remember how we talk about the funny things that inspire us?
This time around I couldn't find my nifty dremel bit
so I resorted to using my drill.
Yes, I cracked a few eggs.....
But the end result was fairly good with a uniform tiny hole on each egg.
What we were feeling really good about was the brilliant idea to "hang" each egg up to dry after painting.
I've been complaining about my abundance of pipe cleaners, ya know all the ugly colors that come in the monstrous pack you have to buy just to get the 5 hot pink ones you need.....
Well we chopped them in half, one side was a handy holder stuffed into the egg,
the other bent over a glass to dangle the egg till the paint dried.
It worked sooooo great!
My only regret is freckling the eggs.  We got a little caught up in the freckling process after all the egg wreaths and I just couldn't help myself.....You could say the freckles "BUG" me....
but overall, we're pretty happy!
 P.S. Don't forget to enter our Giveaway!  The drawing closes tonight at Midnight and our lucky winner will be revealed tomorrow ASAP!!!

OMG--these are so cute! I could NEVER do anything like this! I would probably handle them way too hard and they would break. :( I wish I were more crafty like this, but I guess I gotta work with what I have . . . . :)

Thanks for stopping my my blog and leaving a comment!

I LOVE these, and the ones you did yesterday. I can't wait to see what you do tomorrow. I featured these on my blog! Thanks for the inspiration. It's always nice to see real people do Martha's crafts. It gives us hope! :)

Very cute eggs....maybe I could try this with the painted plastic eggs? The real eggs scare me!! These would be so fun to hide outside for my little guys to find! Thanks for ANOTHER wonderful idea.
