Spring has come early in New York City, it's 72 degrees today! It is the perfect day to start saving eggs to decorate for Easter.
You may not know this but I have a collection of blown out eggs, big and small, white and brown, cracked and whole, dyed and not dyed, and all of them can be used to make beautiful spring decorations. A lot of my eggs actually come from Martha's farm, which she generously brings into the office every week. I always try to get the Aracanda chicken ones, which range in color from blue to green to pink.
Using just a few materials I made these little flower arrangement eggs. I used dyed eggs from my collection and some of the natural eggs from Martha's farm, but you can easily blow out your own eggs and dye them for this project.
Right now in the Martha Stewart Crafts line we have huge assortment of spring-themed self-adhesive stickers. I simply embellished my eggs using a few of the floral sticker sheets. Here I used a broken egg (save the broken eggs from making breakfast and you can dye those also) as a vase for a little floral arrangement using the Lily of the Valley sticker, which is one of my favorites because it reminds me of my mother's perfume.
For the next ones I used the Dogwood branches and Daisy stickers.
Besides flowers there are also some 3 deminsional glittered bird stickers.
I used egg cups to display my eggs but wouldn't it be great to fill an egg carton with your creations to give as a gift? This is a fun and easy project the whole family can enjoy. Check out our April issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine for other great Easter eggs decorating ideas.
Have fun crafting!
