Easter Placque Decoration

It is Monday.
I know that is normally Menu Plan Monday but...

1. I haven't even thought about menu planning yet
2. I actually made Easter Decorations more than a day in advance of the holiday. 

That means I need to be able to share it with y'all before Easter too!

So I was at Hobby Lobby or somewhere and I saw this super adorable placque thing that had eggs on it and each egg had a letter and it said Easter.

I considered buying it until I realized...
1. it was $15
2. I could make it
3. I had all the supplies to make it

I used:
Wood Key Rack
Plastic Easter Eggs
Hot Glue

 I started by removing the hooks from my wooden key rack that I bought for $2 at the swapmeet

Then I slightly sanded it and started painting it

I painted a few more coats and during the drying time I took a sharpie and wrote Easter amongst the eggs.. you can also use stickers, vinyl, felt or whatever else you want instead.

After the paint was dry and the eggs were ready I hot glued the eggs into place.

Voila! What would of cost my $15 to buy full price and $8 ish with a coupon cost me $3 to make!
