Dollar Store EASTER EGG up do

With St. Patrick's Day almost out of the way I am trying to get ready for Easter!
It's less then 3 weeks away. Oh my.
 Have you see any of these fun felt cut outs at the dollar store?!?!  Well, this one I purchased for $1 last year in a last minute attempt to add some Easter festivity to my front door. (I saw some this year as well) I just put it up as is on my door.  It did the job....last year... but this year I wanted something more fun and colorful.
 So with help from my fabric scraps and some liquid stitch glue I added a bit of color to the egg.
For a little extra detail I stitched around the egg and some of the cut outs with my sewing machine, then I simply threaded some string in the top to hang it on my door.
 Ahhh, so much better!
