Easter Egg-stravaganza

 

It’s spring, when a mother’s fancy lightly turns to how the heck are we going to decorate eggs to put around our Easter tree THIS year.

Here’s a selection of egg decorating options from my 'Celebrations’ Pinterest board.  I haven’t yet consulted the Minx on this weighty matter though.

neon-eggs

From Martha Stewart.  I think I’d be making these if I’d got the neon thread in time.

 

floral-easter-eggs

 

From Stylizimo. There are loads more egg decorating ideas on this gorgeous blog, but there’s no way the Minx and I could do anything this detailed and beautiful.

 

chalkboard-eggs

 

 

From Home Made Simple. Not entirely sure I can convince the Minx of the intrinsic chicness of black eggs.

 

string-eggs

From Crafty Endeavour. Starched embroidery floss eggs formed around mini-balloons. Not sure the Minx (or I) have the patience for these.

 

polka-dot-eggs

 

From Better Homes and Gardens.  These could be a contender.  They fit right in with the polka dot trend and all you need is a hole punch, some double-sided tape and some glitter.

 

pink-gold-eggs

From Fabulous K. I think these might be my favourites, if I can get the right paints together in time.

And now I’m eggs-hausted.  If you’ll eggs-cuse me.

These eggs are really very originally painted, I think that I might use some of the ideas! Thanks a lot, these photos inspired me !

Thank you so much for the mention! Happy Easter!!

Starched embroidery floss? Never heard of it, but so cool!

LOVE the polka dot eggs particulalry - but I must say the black ones also took my eye! Thanks for sharing - I did my blog this week about my antique eggs (I made these with my mom when I was young - guess I"m officially old now!) and a nest idea I got from the March/April Cloth/Paper/Scissors - maybe you and the Minx would like to make a nest, too???

Egg-cellent play on words!

Have you seen the eggs that are "dyed" using old silk neckties? So lovely I've been tempted to see how that technique would work on our girls' brown eggs.
