Easter is already here, can you believe it? We all know that Christmas decorations will pop up in stores as soon as the hot crossed buns are shipped out! Scary. As you may or may not know, I’m not a fan of chocolate, consequently I don’t particularly like the chocolate egg. I do love real eggs however, and I’ve been trying to find a novel way of decorating some for easter. I found this technique on marthastewart.com which I think is quite sweet… very girly… Hmmm, what does a ‘manly’ easter egg look like?
This is how you make them!
Before you begin, make a place to leave your eggs while they dry. Try using some foam board fitted with flathead pins. If you don’t have foam board, you could use a pin board or some rice cracker biscuits (??)
Ok, so firstly, you need some scrap lace or an old doily will do. Cut the lace into strips long enough to wrap around the eggs with enough left over to hold and secure the lace to the egg with an elastic band. Follow the dying instructions on your packet of dye and leave the egg in the dye for a few minutes. Lift the egg out, unwrap the lace and let them dry.
Happy Easter my friends! I’m heading off to the beach for a few days, so I’ll see you all next week.
