I can’t believe that in one week it is going to be Easter! This is our second Easter with little miss! Time to start some traditions with her; like Easter egg decorating.
She is still pretty small to understand everything going on, being 14 months and all, but she will be WAY more into it than last year! Ah, last year…when I stuffed her in an Easter basket surrounded by giant eggs, propped her on a pillow, and took a gazillion pictures! Literally, A GAZILLION! She was only two months old then, and it was our first holiday! I can use that as a legitimate excuse, RIGHT?! 🙂
Anyways, this holiday loving momma decided to get some Easter traditions started early! Really, it’s never to early to instill family traditions! Lil miss and I are going to decorate our first batch of Easter eggs ever! I am so excited to celebrate and share holidays with her, not to mention, everyday moments! So, in my normal fashion, to prepare, I did some scouring of the internet and found some amazing ideas for ways to decorate Easter eggs!
I am always looking for inspiration to get my creative juices flowing, and getting ideas for ways to decorate Easter eggs is no different. I am thrilled to be sharing some awesome posts by amazing bloggers. These posts will inspire and teach you unique and great ways to decorate Easter eggs. Here are my favorites that I have discovered and will be incorporating into our own Easter egg decorating projects with my sweet little miss!
So here it goes!
A plain Jane egg can be turned into a phenomenal head turner with just a few embellishments and some glue like Angie did from Little Inspiration.
This year I seem to really be enjoying the look of simplicity, as seen with these lovely polka dot painted eggs from Diana at The Girl Creative. These look like a great option for my lil miss. Instead of a stamping tool to make the circles, I will probably have her do finger prints.
I love these eggs Maia and Sara made at Bitte because they are the perfect project for a parent and toddler to do together. The toddler can dye the egg and then mom or dad can add on the details. How fun to show the joys of collaboration at a young age and end up with such a stellar end product, too! Talk about a win-win idea!
Another trend I have been seeing all over the web is the use of water color in place of dye for eggs. I love the look of water color and the flexibility it provides. These water color eggs by Squirrelly Minds are great for adults and kids alike! They turn out so beautiful and unique every time!
Here, Erin from Printable Crush, takes a completely different approach on watercolor eggs by only painting half the egg and then adding beautiful brush lettering. I just love, love, love how these turned out. Also, I am sorta kinda, OK, completely obsessed with brush lettering right now! I have just started teaching myself, so this would be such a fun new surface to letter on!
If you like a little more of a bold look, as opposed to what you can achieve with water color, why not try acrylic paint. I have found some incredibly talented and creative eggs decorated Star Wars style by Sarah at Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls. These are awesome and her tutorial is great!
Now, these next two ways to decorate Easter eggs are very simple, but pack a huge punch! I love those types of projects. They are always my favorite! Ann from Duct Tape and Denim made fab galvanized Easter eggs.
While Allison from Dream A Little Bigger, made mood Easter eggs. Remember moon rings? I loved those! These are an awesome take on that idea!
I also love the concept of using what we already have at home as a way to decorate Easter eggs. Rosemary at Not Just Paper and Paint dyed eggs using coffee, tea, and turmeric. These came out amazing. I love the tones of the color on the eggs.
What if you just aren’t feeling like painting or dying your eggs. Well, I have another idea, too! How about decoupage?! Yep! And you can decoupage awesome designs and text like Lavender Girl from Kiflies Levendula did!
Or get creative like Elizabeth from Frugal Mom Eh, with feathers. These decoupage eggs look so chic. I love both styles.
Hope this great collection gets your creative juices flowing. I would love to see how your Easter egg decorating turns out and what your favorite egg decorating style is! Let me know in the comments below! Happy Easter to you and your family!
I am linking up with these parties!
