Book Paper Easter Eggs

These adorable eggs are simple to make.  All you need is any type of egg ( I used plastic so I can save them for next year), Mod Podge, a foam brush, water (optional) and an old book. 

Step 1- For the first step I gathered all of my supplies and started cutting book pages into little strips. 

Step 2- The first egg I put the scraps of paper into water and placed them across the egg.  I soon realized that the strips were getting to wet and sliding off of the egg. So for the rest of eggs I skipped this step.  But who knows it might work for you!

Step 3- I put a layer of Mod Podge onto the egg to add some texture so the paper would stay in place. I put a dry piece of paper over the Mod Podge.  I repeated this step until the egg was covered in paper. 

Step 4- For the final step I applied a second coat of Mod Podge over the entire egg. 

I got some spanish moss and put them in Easter Stand

I hope you like them!
