Lovely, Lovely Eggs

Easter is fast approaching and while plain old colored eggs are always fun, there are so many amazing egg decorating ideas out there it would be a shame to stick with just the dye, wouldn’t it? Colorful, floral, unique, so many ideas! I’m thinking of trying a few of these on blown out eggs so that I can keep them well beyond Easter Morning! Alright, maybe I’m thinking of trying them all! Here are some of my very favorites!

Exquisite Eggs - Country Living

Exquisite Eggs – Country Living

These clever eggs use tattoo paper to transfer botanical images to the eggs, I love their Edwardian style. Wouldn’t they look great in a pretty bowl or vase?

Silk Dyed Eggs - Country Living

This is an unusual take on the traditional silk dyed eggs. Using black and white silks creates a striking, modern style, beautiful and elegant. And so charming!

Decoupage Fabric Eggs - Tatertots & Jello

On the flip side, these eggs are bursting with color. A great way to use those plastic eggs for something a little more decorative, these are bright and beautiful and I can’t get enough of them!

Scrambled Lines Easter Eggs - Martha Stewart

And here we have dyed eggs with a twist! Tape in stripes to create a void in the color when dyed. Applied in layers after each trip into the dye bath, you get a while and beautiful result with very little effort. This woudl be a great variation to try with the kids!

How will you decorate your eggs this year? Any ideas you’d like to share? We’d love to see them! And check out these and other egg-related crafts on our Craft Trends Pinboard!

Mother’s Day Chocolate Flowers

Mother's Day Chocolate Flowers

We always make flowers for my mom for Mother’s Day, but this year I wanted to mix it up a bit and make her some edible ones.  That is why we decided to make these yummy Mother’s Day Chocolate Flowers.  I know my mom will love them because she loves flowers and she loves chocolate, so this is a win-win. The fact that the grandkids made them just makes these the best gift we could make for grandma.

This was actually our first time ever making candy like this, so I was not really sure how it was going to go. I have to say it was way easier than I thought it was going to be.  Both girls were able to help, which just shows you how truly easy this was.

I decided to just melt the chocolates in a plastic bag to make the whole process quick and less messy which ended up working great.  While one bag was in the microwave melting, I had my daughter making flowers with another one.  It took less than 10 minutes to fill our mold using 4 different colors.  Then, we just waited for them to harden and we made some more.

We try to bring new ideas and fun finds from around the internet right to your screen with our different social media channels. If you’re not already following, and like what you see, make sure to click over and like, follow, comment, and share!

This week, I’m starting out with Instagram. I’m having so much fun in my floral arranging class, and I love to share! This week, we made English Garden arrangements. They’re supposed to be a little wild, and look like you just dropped them into your vase. But it takes a lot more work. My floral frog definitely helped a lot.
