Make It : Easy Easter Eggs

Posted by

My sister-in-law invited my family over to decorate Easter eggs this weekend and I was digging around the office for inspiration for some easy ideas for my nieces, nephew and little sons to try. I started playing with the rub-downs and 3-D stickers that are in the Martha Stewart Crafts line. I especially love the glitter letters and the 3-D flowers. They make dyed eggs look fancy super-fast. I think us big kids will have as much fun as the little ones!

I LOVE these rub-downs. I thought we could make some egg place cards for Easter dinner.

  • [...] BUT… I love the easy eggs over at the Craft Department.(hello- like my new favorite haunt!) [...]

  • Love the creative eggs! Did MSO put out any Easter crafts this season?

  • These are adorable! I'm so excited about the crafts dept. blog. I'll be coming back often. (just read about it on Etsy)

  • Very creative and beautiful!

  • These eggs are so pretty......I'll be looking in my scrapbooking supplies for stray stickers that didn't get used yet. Great for the younger kids too.
    I'll be looking for penguin & fish at Etsy. I'm there too :)

  • Reference: "Silk" Easter Eggs
    A suggestion: Silk fabric is loved for two properties, (1) its total comfort in hot or cold weather, (2) it's great ability to accept strong dye colors. I heard Martha say they had tried cotton prints for this project but it didn't work. They were investigating the "science". My suggestion is to try any dark print on a rayon fabric background. Rayon is the only other fabric that accepts dye as well as silk, however it is unbearable to wear on a hot day. I think the colors may be as intense for this project as is any silk print.
