My Pottery Barn Knock Off was a Fail

Spray Paint Doesn't Work on Plastic Easter Eggs

I knew when I saw these cute eggs at Pottery Barn that I had to make some!

I was so excited when I found plastic eggs with holes in the top at the dollar store. And I even scored some white spray paint at Wal-Mart for 98cents!

I was not so excited when the paint did not adhere to the plastic eggs and my eggs turned out like this.

So instead, I will share with you this lovely vignette from the DIY showoff.

Bummer. No Pottery Barn knock off for me this year (maybe after when I can score the paper mache eggs for pennies!). Go check it out here and be inspired. She probably did a better job than I would have anyway!

Dude girl, you can still do it. Why don't you just paper mache quickly over those eggs, that should be easy enough. That is an awesome vignette, both Pottery Barn duh, and DIY show,,, WOWsers.

I hope you try again!!!

I agree with Bella!! Just quickly modpodge some paper atop them and then'll add some groovy texture to it too!

These are on my to-do list as well.

Thank you for sharing this. I am sorry it didn't work out but I was actually thinking of doing this myself and I am glad to know that it doesn't work out so well. I appreciate your bravery (in trying) and openness (in telling us what happended.
