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!
