As a child one of my most favorite memories for Easter Sunday was dying the eggs the week before and then hunting for them in the house on Easter morning. Our mom was always so creative when it came to the holidays and had the BEST Easter baskets, made fabulous oven baked french toast, and hid our Easter eggs in the most secretive of places (I remember finding one in our pool table pockets!). So I decided that this weekend I’d post some DIY eggs from the blog world to reeve the kiddies up for a great and creative holiday.
These two egg decorating methods employ the same technique found at Martha Stewart but just different papers! Or cut little pieces from paper that inspires you and don’t cover the entire egg.
Try out some of these no-dye egg decorating ideas from Better Homes I like the double-sided adhesive strips cut into pretty designs and then dipped in glitter!
Speaking of glitter – make these pretty decorative eggs from Martha Stewarts again.
These pretty as can be eggs also use similar techniques through creating designs with wax and then dying or leaving. The top uses simple crayons on hot eggs to produce pretty colors on eggs (remember you can use a white crayon to draw pictures and also words on eggs before dying as well). The bottom picture is an old Ukranian method using hot candle wax to draw designs before dying the egg.
Hand paint eggs after dying with water-based acrylic colors special for eggs – I love the polka dot one! Or redecorate again and again with chalkboard paint eggs (use colored chalk too!). You could also use these as place settings at an Easter party.
If you’ve been on pinterest at all you’ve probably seen these beauties around. Silk tie -dying. What a good way to reuse unwanted ties.
And last but not least . . . why not make real chocolate filled eggs by following Martha’s directions?
