First, gather up your supplies:
Newspaper (or sheet music, magazine pages, etc.)
Scrap ribbon or fabric and raffia or dried moss
A serrated knife
Mod Podge and a paint brush
Hot Glue Gun
To dress up the egg, use what you have. I had a scrap piece of ribbon that was tied onto a gift (the original tag was still attached to it) that I tied around the egg with some additional strands of raffia. Then I cut a bird shape from a Fresca can and glued it to the bow.
Whadda ya think? Still think you need to buy all that new stuff?
