Hanging Vintage Easter Egg

I am excited to present you with my second P K Glitz Easter project!
I have been loving playing with the Vintage Hues. They really have an old world feel!
I decided to use them again to make this hanging vintage Easter.
For this project you will need an assortment of P K Glitz glitter (the Pastel color wheel is perfect for Easter!),
one of the Easter-themed Vintage Hues, and some accessories to help with the glittering process (brush and spoon). You will also need, but not shown above, is 3D Crystal Lacquer.

On the back of the Easter Vintage Hue, color in the chick with the Crystal Lacquer then sprinkle with the Lemonade glitter. I also used the Crystal Lacquer on the flowers and stems using the White Pearl, Peach, and Mint Green glitters.
Dabbing a small amount of glue on the back of the dried glitter, adhere the Vintage Hue to a piece of white cardstock.
Carefully cut out the Easter design then glue it to a piece of oval-shaped patterned scrapbook paper.
We also need a large paper mache egg and acrylic paint.
I used painted several coats of paint on the egg.
I used a color similar to the scrapbook paper that the Easter design is on, and also a color with some pearlescent tones. I think it helps at to the vintage feel!
After adding some lace tape around the oval-shaped scrapbook paper, I adhered the entire piece to the front of the egg. The sides of the paper do not have to touch the egg. Just gluing the paper down the middle and sticking it to the egg is sufficient.
To hang our egg we will need to add some ribbon.
Glue your ribbon to the bottom of the egg. Once dry, wrap the ribbon around the egg and tie a bow at the top.
I added a Christmas ornament wire to the top of the bow for easy hanging.
Wouldn’t several of these look adorable strung up to make an Easter tree?
I added the vintage egg to my spring moss and burlap wreath, and suddenly I have an Easter wreath!
What would you do with this vintage Easter egg?
There are so many possibilities!
