Easter is just around the corner and presents the perfect opportunity for a weekend of ‘crafting’. Create Easter-themed decorations to spruce your abode, entertain over the holidays, or as an activity to amuse your kids, with our eggs-ellent ideas and inspirations below!
To boil or not to boil? You can decorate hard boiled eggs, however if you’d prefer your craft project to not have an ‘eggs-piry’ date so to speak, we recommend draining their yolk and scrambling that part for breakfast!
Note: If decorating eggs with small children, hard boiled is probably a safer option. Less breakage, that sort of thing. For a rather useful guide to dying eggs with little kids, check out these tips on UK blog ‘No Twiddle Twaddle’.
Place your decorated Easter eggs in rustic terracotta pots and baskets, mossy bird nests, egg cartons or simple egg cups to make cute table centrepieces for a party.
Or string them together to create a sweet garland for hanging along a feature wall.
Suspending decorated eggs from a tree branch to create an ‘Easter Tree’ looks adorable too. So many options for a lazy Sunday afternoon session…
Hand died, hand painted, spray painted, decoupaged, tied…. We have created a beautiful mood board on Pinterest with all sorts of floral inspired Easter decorations.
