Celebrating Easter

Aren't these beautiful? The girls and I have been enlisted to make the eggs for Easter dinner at Nana's house. I can't wait to see how these turn out. Will post pics of our finished project so check back.....
Here are the instructions if you feel adventurous enough to try this too!

Robin's Egg Place Cards
Decorate your spring table with a speckled surprise. A tiny nest makes an ideal place card holder when filled with an egg that’s been dyed a soft shade of blue. For an authentic robin’s egg look, use a toothbrush to add delicate markings with brown craft paint.

For blue eggs, combine 1 drop of blue food coloring with 1 drop of green food coloring in glass of water. Feel free to play with different amounts of food coloring to adjust the color. Lower egg into water and set aside to dry.

To speckle eggs, we used one bottle of brown craft paint and a toothbrush. Dip brush into paint and lightly splatter and dab around the egg to achieve a random, lightly dotted pattern. Allow to dry.
