Had an unfinished wood garbage can for my daughter's room,that I finally got around to decorating. Spraypainted it purple, then started cutting and attaching eggs. I had a lot of fun doing this!












Originally I was going to make a mural with the eggs in the hallway, so all of my friends started buy up all the Easter Eggs they could find on clearance. I have over 1000 eggs now!!!


So I guess as soon as she gets bored of that.... I'll probably become known as the egg girl on craftster.

That garbage can is adorable!  It turned out so cute!

But I have to say that if my two year old daughter got a look at that big box of eggs.... well, I'd rather not think of that. Or *I'd* have to start buying and begging for eggs.  LOL.

Wow! That is all bright and funky! I wouldn't mind having one of those. I wouldn't mind having a big box full of eggs to play in either!

Thank you, it does look super cute in her room because I've tried to fill her room with all bright colors, and original objects.
I kept trying to catch a picture of her laughing when she was in the egg pit, but everytime I snapped the photo, she would get really serious looking. It was insane!!

I sliced strips down on the pointy end of the egg, but didn't hit the bottom all the way. Then I used the "mini" egg and glued that on the inside part of the cut egg.
