From Cheap to Chic Easter Decor

I am cheap – especially when it comes to decorating and making my own home decor instead of buying it.

I watch decor shows on TV, and I am appalled that people spend hundreds on decor. No need. No NEED!

If you have some basic pieces around your home, pieces that are the base of your decor, those you can spend a little money on. You can create gorgeous home decor using those basics.

Things like bowls, baskets, plates, vases and glassware.

You can create your own decor items far far cheaper than going to some pottery shed store and buying a pillow for $100.

OK, sure, if you have ideas. Maybe you don’t have ideas.

That’s what I’m here for.

Let me show you how I took $0.88 cent cheap plastic eggs (hey, wait until the sales and get them 50% off for creating year-round items) and $2.00 Styrofoam eggs and turned them into From Cheap to Chic Easter Decor.
A little spray paint goes a long way, you can easily create several dozen eggs for your home with a couple cans of spray paint.

I spray painted both the chocolate eggs and the stone eggs. How fabulous are they?

What you need are some plastic eggs. Get as many as you want to create.

I used the leftovers of deep brown satin paint to create the chocolate eggs. I only needed two coats of paint for those.

Spray them on each side. Let them dry, and they’re done.

I found the large egg as a Styrofoam egg in the decor section at Walmart for $2.00.

I use moss and paper twist fillers – all available for $1.00 each at the dollar store.

I found that little paper mache rabbit on my cake plate, 40% off at Joann’s. Cute for about $2.5o.

What I did with the stone items, was to spray them first with $1.00 cheap white spray paint. Then I used stone paint, it comes out kinda erratically, to form a stone texture on the object you are painting.

It covered the eggs well. I sprayed them with a couple coats of white paint. I probably used three coats of the stone paint.

If you angle the eggs so that the holes on the ends don’t show, they look like expensive vase fillers. All for a couple bucks worth of eggs and paints.

How pretty is all this stuff? It’s super elegant looking too, considering it all started out a very colorful and cheap!
Enjoy!
