Easter Egg Countdown

So, I've been seeing a lot of cute Easter countdowns around blogland, but I wanted one that could hang, and be reused every year.  Willie and I made a trip to the dollar store, raided my stash, and came up with this...

Here are our supplies. {From the dollar store - bunny egg tray ($1), stickers/treats ($3), plastic eggs ($1). From the stash - velcro, gingham fabric, number stickers.}

And then, I realized the velcro, wasn't going to do the trick, so I swapped it out for this....

I filled the eggs before involving Willie, so they would be a surprise.  Then, I put in the foam mounting sqaures, and attached the eggs like so...
I added the number stickers, and then double-checked the strength of the mounting tape.

I added a couple of ripped fabric strips.  And, tah-dah!  Total cost to me $5!

  1. Well, that is really cute. We have a new Easter addition here, too, that will also be a countdown of sorts. I wonder if you can figure out how... ;-)
