diy | decorated Easter 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 (these wooden eggs would work, too).  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! This is such a fun, simple DIY Easter egg project, and so easy for kids to take part!

Hope your week is wonderful!

Blessings,
Rebecca
