  • Lay wood piece onto scrapbook and give a gentle rub to make sure everything is stuck down.

To make my bunny stand, I used a small wood piece cut from an old scrabble tray* and glued it onto the back using Dap Rapid Ruse All Purpose Adhesive*.

(You can find scrabble trays on Amazon*.  Another idea would be to use a small kids block*.)

Now you’re ready to set the table using your good dishes and let the party begin.

Personally…I always considered these red toile dishes my “good” dishes and I only used them

for Holidays.  Now, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve decided to use them every day.

Speckled Eggs for Spring

Speckled Eggs for Spring 4927

Now that I only have a teen-ager at home, we don’t do the dyed eggs anymore.  (he’s no fun)

But… I still needed some soft pastel hued Speckled Eggs for Spring.

Putting my eggs in one basket 4847So… I grabbed a few of my Smoothfoam Eggs.

I gave the eggs a light sanding to remove the ridge and painted them with a soft chalky finish.

Like the name suggests, these eggs have a smooth finish making them perfect for painting.

The best way to paint an egg 4895

The best way to paint an egg…

Use an small glass or candle votive to hold the egg.  Paint one half of the egg at a time.

I especially like the look of speckled eggs, so I grabbed an old toothbrush for speckling.

  • Speckled the eggs by lightly rubbing the old toothbrush into brown paint and gently flicking the paint onto the eggs.
  • Make sure to wear an apron to protect your clothing.  Flicking can be quite messy.
