Crafty Easter! - Eggs

Here's some fun decorative ideas for some cute Easter Eggs!
Add a touch of class with these elegant vintage pictures, simply paste them onto the hard eggs. Easy.
My personal favourite (as I'm a sucker for glitter) is to cover them in fab glitter!
What cuties! Cut out gorgeous paper silhouettes, stick them on the egg and paint around them. When the paint is dry carefully peel of the paper!

And what about these lovelies! Take the top of an egg and use the egg inside, what about a fried egg? Then carefully wash out the egg shell, add a wick and wax. Easy!
Make this amazing decorative egg!
You'll never guess how you make them and its super easy?!

With these!

You need 100% silk for this to work. Make sure to check the labels to make sure you’re not buying polyester, which can look similar. You can grab these at charity shops and car boots sales for only a few pounds!

It's a real surprise as to how the colours will turn out so have a go and find out!

First, deconstruct the tie. Snip the seams and remove the lining so you are just left with the silk.
Next you cut a piece large enough to cover an egg. Wrap the egg with the right side of the fabric making contact with the egg. The right side is the printed side, or the side that would be on the outside of the tie. You want to try to wrap the fabric as tight as you can without breaking the egg of course. The more direct contact the silk has with the egg shell the clearer the imprint of the pattern. Where there are folds in the fabric you’ll get kind of a swirly water color effect. I love those parts- it adds to the charm. Once wrapped, tie with a piece of string or a twisty tie. (Do yourself a favor and go with the twisty tie!)
After the eggs are wrapped in silk, you’re going to wrap them again with a light colored light weight piece of fabric. An old pillowcase, sheet, or thin dish cloth is perfect.
Put all those little guys in a pot and cover them with water. Add 1/4 vinegar and bring it to a boil. After about 20 minutes you can remove the eggs and set them in a colander or on a towel to dry and cool. Once they’re cool enough to handle you can remove the fabric.

It’s always a surprise to see what went on in that little package.


Have a fab time with these!
