Five Fabulous Friday Finds

by Paula on March 23, 2012


“Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin’ down the bunny trail….”

Yes, it’s that time of year again!! And while I have the spring tablecloths out and the plastic eggs oh-so-artfully displayed, something’s missing.


Wonder what it is?

OH!  Yes, that’s it.  Decorated eggs.  I’m feeling the need to decorate eggs.  Those plastic eggs are certainly practical and last for.ev.er. but I’m itching to decorate something!!

And of course, I could drive over to the library and find a real live, printed-on-paper book and search for inspiration that way.

But…. naaah.  I’m staying home in my comfy clothes and going Pinning!  Come along!

I am absolutely in love with these gorgeous eggs from Crap I’ve Made.  (Yes, that’s really the name of the blog!  Yes, I think I could totally fill up a blog with a name like that.  Whaddya think about “Crap Made by The Tween and Me” ?  No?  Guess I should stick with my day job, eh?  😉  )  Anyway, aren’t these lovely? Note:  read the comments for an alternative method of making the design.

Crafty Endeavor made these beautiful embroidery floss eggs.  I’ve seen this idea a lot but fell in love with the colors she choose…. and the linear look of the light blue egg is so different from any one else’s.  Love!

Just when you think you’ve seen it all—-It’s Overflowing shows off a really innovative idea:  Chalkboard Paint Easter Eggs!!  Good thing we’re doing these projects with hard-boiled eggs!

Want some mystery eggs?  Try tie-dying them with Silk Neck Ties (yep, like the ones Daddy wears—except you should probably leave his alone and get some from the thrift store!) with this technique from Mommy Knows.  So very different looking!  I like!

When it comes to reading and comprehending German words, my comfort level ends around strudel and biergarten.  And when it comes to Japanese words… I don’t know much past sushi.  But the washi tape eggs from Flamingo Avenue (yes, it’s all in German!) are stunning!!  I didn’t need to know German or Japanese to appreciate their beauty.  And now….Must. Order. Washi. Tape. Immediately.

Oh, yes, I have that feeling.  It’s time for decorating!!  After all, “Hippity, hoppity, Easter’s on its way!”

How will you decorate your eggs this Easter?

thanks for sharing my washi tape egg :) I’m happy you like it, even though my blog is in German. I should think about translating a little… 😉

All the best,

Thanks for sharing all these beautiful eggs! We decorated Rice Krispy Easter Eggs this year. Not quite as pretty as the ones you featured, but they were easy and delicious!
