diy | decorated eggs

I set out to decorate eggs this past weekend, but didn’t have any dye on hand, and I wanted to incorporate nature.  So I took my nephew on a flower picking expedition, and we found some beautiful, fresh egg decorations – sedum, forsythia, horseweed, wild rose, and violet.  
Then I used some of my favorite strings – jute twine, white baker’s twine, and neon pink masonry line – to attach the fresh greenery and flowers to hard boiled eggs.  The result is a sunning yet simply decorated egg.  

How wonderful is this project?  Nothing says SPRING more than a little bowl of brown eggs and some fresh miniature flowers.  Let me know if you try out this project, or if you have your own favorite egg-dying-alternative!

Hope your week is wonderful!

Blessings,
Rebecca

    This is such a great idea! I love the simplicity of it – and it really does say spring! These are much prettier than dyed eggs, in my opinion 🙂

    Soo pretty – reminds me of something that fairies would leave behind 🙂 You get goody points for actually identifying the names of flowers and leaves too!!

    hahaha, thanks for noticing the plant names, Nicole 😉 It took me a while to identify them 😉 Also, yes…FAIRIES! Totally love that association!
