totally could modify this and not use real eggs. and it would look just as stunning without the cut outs. Just use the black puff paint on anything - wood, plastic, whatever, cover with a shabby white or shabby pink and then sand it off here and there for more shab fabs. I am so there I want to get started right now! :D
Pinner said: my ukrainian grandmother taught me how to make eggs like this when I was young. use melted wax to draw a design on the eggs, allow it to dry, then dip the egg into dye. once finished dying, allow to dry, then warm the wax (she did this over a candle flame), and wipe the wax off with a towel. if you blow the egg insides out beforehand, then the eggs will last forever!
