fancy bonnet lady eggs

oh goodness.
i went crazy over spring break making TONS of easter stuff.

oh goodness.
easter's next Sunday already.

oh goodness.
how the heck am i gonna share everything before then?
oh well, guess whatever will be, will be.

i should just do what this lady's doing:
realizing i have an over abundance of easter eggs lying around, i married a couple together. 
the colored eggs i've had forever and the white eggs are from hobby lobby.
 i don't know about you but i put all my eggs in one basket box and some of them just happen to merge together.
thus this idea came up.

so then i decided to dress them up.

it's another easter bonnet craft.
i made little ones here in case you have no clue what i'm talking about.
ok they need faces,
and hair.
i know this step may be a little difficult to follow since i have no pattern for you but heck hair is hair and i think any pattern will work really. 
even strips and triangles as you'll see in a sec.

check out the dotted green arrow in the pic to see which pattern made each hairdo.

when i glued the strips and triangles, i just layered them any old way, leaving space for the forehead.
hey man-whassup with that?!
straighten up lady!
now attach the white face egg back to the colored one to get one heckuva fancy egg lady.

you like it?
they remind me of Beyonce 
with the flowing hair thing going on.
they need to be on display y'know?
thus explains the next step.
when you gather them all together, go out to your yard and find a tree to hang them on and take some pics.
never mind that Mr. and Mrs. Jones next door are nonchalantly staring at you wondering why you are taking pics of heads hanging off your front yard tree.
hey don't stare back ladies! that's not polite!
you tell 'em lady gaga!
err, i mean whoever you are, pink egg lady...
ok that's better.
just hanging out with your fancy hair, 
your hole that looks like a cindy crawford mole (i'm talking to you miss black haired egg lady),
and your pouty botox lips.
hey wanna improve their looks (at least on the inside)? 
do this:

you're welcome carrie underwood.

oh i got one more thing for ya.
why do i feel like i need to fix my hair now? 

oh and here's one more annoying reminder to enter the giveaway here going on til the 30th...


  1. Oh so cute and creative Lisa! I love it.."load these ladies up with candy"..i do that almost on a daily basis! I had to laugh at the thought of your neighbors seeing you photographing these bonnet dressed eggs. I have had my neighbors catch me in my backyard "shooting sugar" as i call it..and that year I had my jolly ranchers eggs hanging in my cherry blossom trees for their photo shoot and kept running back to my porch to hide when i would see a car coming up my street..after all, I was still in my pjs of course. Hahaha..the things we do for our bloggety-blogs!
    These little bonnet lady eggs will make for a sweet Easter!

    1. BAHAHA! your comment cracked me up Karen! only cuz i can totally relate! i take the garbage out in my pj's along with a towel wrapped around my head after my shower after work so i am sure i have blinded the neighbors by now-and then by taking pics of eggheads hanging off a tree they are surely frightened and don't bother with me much-LOL! if i drove by your house and saw you in your pj's with candy i would fly outta my car and ask you to fill me up with the goods! i might even have my pj's on! ok just kidding-i don't wear my pj's to walmart like some folks do-LOL ;)

  2. OMG. What can I say???????? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these!!! But look here, we (that's all us out here in bloggy land) praise your creative side, but I'd like to call attention to your computer skills!!! I've always noticed, but the green arrows above, that really called my attention to all the extra you do! So! All you out there in bloggy land, let's hear it for my BBFF's computer skills!!!! I'm impressed. Dona

    1. oh my goodness! you are SOOOOOO sweet my BBFF! i do spend a lot of time making up these darn tutes but since you like them, i'll keep doin' them Dona! sometimes it takes longer to do the computer thing with the pics than the actual food or craft-LOL :>O
