Most projects on this blog are my own ideas. You may use them for personal and non-commercial use only; however, you cannot publish, use them for submissions to contests, or make a profit off my work. If projects are not based on my original idea, I will try my best to direct you to the creator or where the idea originated from. Thanks so much for your cooperation and I hope that you find lots of inspiration here.

I got this idea to make a chalkboard egg from http://thegreenbeanscrafterole.blogspot.com/. I decided to use the colored chalkboard paint for mine. I am going to put this in Kaylee's Easter Basket. I drew a little funny face on the egg. :)
To make this, I started with a Paper Mache egg from Hobby Lobby and Pink Chalkboard paint that also came from Hobby Lobby.
When using the chalkboard paint, you have to use two coats. You will paint one coat vertically (let it dry) and then paint a second coat horizontally (let it dry).
Once it is completely dry, you can then start to draw on the painted egg.
