DIY Framed Egg Decor with Two Little Birds Decor

Hello Friends of Blissful and Domestic!!
I am so happy to be here guest posting today. Thanks Danielle for having me!

Before we get started, I wanted to introduce myself:

I am Jill and my home is at Two Yellow Birds Decor. You will find plenty of crafts, homemade decor, and recipes. I love to make cute decor for my house for cheap. Luckily my husband is my super handy man and helps me out with a lot of the things I do. I love being able to share my crafts with all of you!

I am a mom to two little monkeys, Kaitlyn {4} and Logan {2}.

They definitely keep me busy! 


Now let's get started......


Every Friday on my blog I do a post called Pinterest Picks.
I include 10 amazing things I have found on Pinterest that week that I love.
A few weeks ago I did a Special Easter Edition,
which can be found HERE.
I found the cutest egg art and included that into the list. 
Here is what the Pinterest Version looks like:


I thought it was so cute so I decided to make my own version of this!

HERE IS WHAT MINE LOOKS LIKE:

I just LOVE how it all came together!!!

How I Made It:

I looked in my frame stash and found one that I had gotten at a local thrift store. It was perfect for this project. I took the back out so I could paint it.



I had pictured in my head how I wanted mine to look and I wanted a colored frame so I chose pink for the color. I spray painted the frame. I did a few coats on it until it was good and covered. 



I wanted to create my own mat for this, so I took silver sparkly paper I had on hand and cut it down to the size of the frame. Then I figured out how thick I wanted it to be and cut a rectangle in the middle of it out using my Cricut. Which created my own mat for it!!

I put that in the frame with a white piece of card stock behind it and then put the back piece back on. I left the piece of glass out because I like the look of it better with out it. I am going to use that for another project!



Next, was the fun part...ok it was a little challenging...trying to figure out the pattern for the eggs. I got the size I wanted and cut a bunch out in different scrapbook papers using my Circut. I am such a visual person so I had to do this to get what I wanted. I cut out about 7 different papers, but ended up only using 3 and put them in rows so it looks like stripes. I like the look of this better than anything else I did. 



Lastly, I put those onto the frame where I wanted them. I used foam tape to put them on with. This way they stick up a bit giving it a 3D look.



I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way it turned out!! 
Definitely better than expected! 




EEEK!!! I can't wait to put it up!

Thanks again Danielle for letting me be here today!!
