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…)

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.

  • Here in South Texas, we have long enjoyed a tradition from our wonderful neighbors in Mexico – that is called Cascaronies! Take a fresh egg, blow out the egg & wash. You need a larger hole at one end as home made confetti goes in there. (A GREAT use for all those leftover paper bits from the years crafting). Once filled, a tissue paper patch goes over the larger hole, then decorate it as you wish with bright colored paper cut in fun shapes! Let dry completely & store in egg cartons. At the Family Easter Party, out come the cartons, kids vie for the most eggs, then madly race around cracking the confetti filled beauties over everyones heads!. Obviously, this is best done outside! Even adults get to play and it is all in Good Fun. Guests & the back yard are brightly colored and if there is a Pina`ta, kids get to break it open with a stick (while blindfolded) and Candy goes everywhere! Feel free to share our Tradition!
