Sarah Cawood’s Decorated Eggs Easter Project:
I LOVE Easter. I love the promise of warmer times to come, I love dotting Easter decorations around the house to herald the arrival of Spring. Oh and I LOVE chocolate! It’s also a season ripe for crafting. Just have a quick look around any crafty emporium and there are LOADS of Easter projects on offer. You just have to find the time to do them!
I’ve been wanting to have a go at blowing eggs for a while because I think they look really effective when they’re all decorated up, and I love the idea that I’ve used real eggs (those polystyrene ones you can buy just don’t cut it for me, and don’t even get me started on the environmental impacts…)
You Will Need:
- Masking tape
- Any sharp tool to pierce the eggs – I used a darning tool
- Modge Podge for decoupaging, if that’s what you’re going to do
- A lot of puff to expel the egg innards 😉
- Decoupage papers, or whatever you want to decorate your eggs with
- Glue gun
- Something to hang them with – embroidery silk or similar
Well, it turns out it’s easier than you’d think. I did six eggs and I didn’t break one! The decoupage process makes them less fragile than you’d think they would be, and I think they’re just gorgeous. Plus, you can decorate them however you please to co-ordinate with your home décor!
You don’t need to hang them if you don’t want to; they would look equally lush arranged in a bowl on your Easter table.
Have fun everyone and HOPPY EASTER! (soz, couldn’t resist!)
Love, La Cawood.
