Like they say, everything is bigger in Texas....even the Easter eggs! It is also true, that pom-pom trim makes everything better, so I combined oversized paper mache eggs with colorful pom-pom and rickrack trim to make these larger than life Easter eggs. ;) These giant eggs were calling my name on my last trip to Hobby Lobby. I knew a pom-pom makeover was in order!
If you want to make your own, hurry to your local Hobby Lobby and snatch them up before they are gone. I just saw that they are currently on sale - only $1.50 each for the large 6" size, and only $0.75 for the smaller 4" size!
These eggs were inspired by some large paper mache eggs my Grandma use to have. They were lined with rick rack from top to bottom. I incorporated the pom-poms to put my own modern spin on them!
It's hard to get a feel for just how big they are until you have someone hold one! Hazel is modeling the purple egg for you. ;)

How to Make Giant Pom-Pom Easter Eggs
1. Paint each egg with your favorite colors of craft paint and a foam brush. It look three coats to get even coverage on my eggs using Martha Stewart multi-surface paints. I used satin paints, but I think their high gloss paints would look even better to give the eggs a little bit of sheen.
2. Add a variety of pom-pom trim and rick rack by adding a thin line of hot glue along the back of the trim.
3. Add mini pom-poms for an extra fun touch!
These look great as a table centerpiece arranged in a flat basket with some Easter grass!
