I am so pleased to be guest blogging over at The T-Shirt Diaries today!
Where else can you learn how to upcycle vintage buttons and create these little beauties?
Thanks for this opportunity Robin!
Let's begin...
I began with these Pottery-Barn-induced dream-scapes...
Oh, sweet Pottery I love thee.
Nest - $24
Book Bundle - $39
Set of 11 - $19.
Keys ~ Set of 7 - $19
Alas, I do not have $101 kicking around for a Spring vignette.
But...I do have loads of plastic Easter eggs, some vintage books thrifted from the second-hand store and some decorative goodness stashed away, just waiting for a new home.

In the spirit of the Stashbust...let's upcycle some tacky looking eggies into some chic decor.
Begin by gathering your supplies.
Plastic eggs, old books, a paper cutter,  Mod Podge, a paintbrush...

Cut your book pages into thin strips - the thinner the strips, the flatter they will lay when you Mod-Podge them on to the eggs.
Roll up your sleeves and prepare to get sticky!
Apply mod-Podge to the egg.
Lay the paper strips over the Mod-Podge, being sure to cover every itty-bitty spot of plastic.
Finish with a thin layer of MP over the paper layer.

Allow to dry.

Once your upcycled eggs have dried, group them together for a fabulous spring vignette.
There you have it ~ my own PB-inspired vignette on a shoestring!
Thanks again Robin!
