I'm in spring crafting mode. I guess it's hoping that it will bring us actual spring weather. So I incorporated my button project into a spring one. I had some buttons for scrapbooking projects and had just the right color! I really love robins eggs this time of year. So I took a styrofoam egg and used glue dots to put the buttons on it. It was super simple this way! I did a little bit of layering to add a bit more interest. i probably would have done a bit more but ran out of buttons. Went to micheals today to see if I could find more but couldn't. So for now just one lonely button egg Sad

I'm sure you could use a plastic egg but it wouldn't be as pliable. You could also paint the egg before so the little bits showing through were the same or a different color. I'm sure there are a million other ways to do this as well but I'm happy with my results. First picture is just the egg. Second is showing where I put it with my other blue eggs.
