Egg-cellent Eggs, Part 1

Well, no matter what the weather looks like outside, it is about to be Easter. I'm finding a lot of great ideas for Easter and spring to share with you over the next couple of weeks. Today I'm focusing on eggs. I've found so many designs and ideas, that I've decided to break this up in to more than one post.

The ideas in this first post are mostly for "fake" decorative eggs. I've provided the links so that you can go to the source and find out how to make these lovely creations. The other post(s) will focus on real/edible eggs. I must say that egg decorating has come a long way from the simple little dye jobs we used to do when I was a kid. Anyway, I'm sure you'll love these ideas, so stay tuned this week!




Decoupage Eggs
These eggs are plastic. Aren't they cute? You could use these for an egg hunt or as a cute decoration for you home.



Faux Finish Eggs
These are made with wooden or paper mache eggs. I think this a cute gift idea for a friend or your child's Easter Basket. If I had one of these, I would definite make a place for it in my China cabinet with all my other collectables.




Tie Dyed Eggs
Sweetened condensed milk and food coloring are used to create this colorful tie dyed effect.




Antiqued Eggs
I grew up in a house full of antiques, and I love buying new things that are antique looking. These are made with styrofoam. If you're into antiques or old fashioned decor, you'll like these.



These have sort of a outdoor, rustic look, and I think they'd look cool to have out all year around, if it goes with some other stuff in your house. I think even the guys out there who like fishing, hunting, and the outdoors may like these.
