5 easy Easter egg projects

By: Jennifer Bartoli

With the winter months behind us, it's time to get ready for Easter! Easter is the perfect time of year to get creative and add a few homemade items to your home decor. We've put together 5 gorgeous ideas - all using regular eggs - to get you started. These pretty eggs will look beautiful as a centrepiece for an Easter dinner, or displayed in a glass vase atop a coffee table. Easter-flowers.jpg
Flowery Easter eggs
These eggs are simply adorned with paper flowers. You can purchase these at craft stores or make your own using a flower-shaped hole puncher. Using a dab of all-purpose glue, secure the flowers to the surface of the egg. Leave to dry completely before displaying.

Polka dot Easter eggs
To make these black and white eggs, paint your eggs using matte all-purpose paint. Once the paint has completely dried, add polka dot stickers to the outer shell of the eggs in a regular pattern. Easter-pastel.jpg
Patterned Easter eggs
To make these Easter eggs, start by adding a few drops of food colouring to a bowl filled with cold water. Test the colour by dipping a piece of paper in the water and add more colouring if needed. Place a few elastics around each egg in a whimsical pattern, making sure they hold tightly around the egg. Gently add the eggs to your dye. Turn the eggs over to ensure that they are evenly coloured.

Remove from the water and leave to dry. Once the eggs are completely dry, remove the elastic bands to reveal your pattern.

Turquoise Easter eggs
These eggs would make a wonderful addition to an Easter dinner as tabletop decor. Simply paint some eggs using turquoise paint and cover others using patterned tape. We love the monochromatic look of this set - which would also look lovely paired with yellow or pink hues.

Golden Easter eggs
These glittery Easter eggs take minutes to put together and are sure to add a little pizzazz to your tabletop decor. Simply cover each egg with a thin layer of all-purpose glue and then place in a sealable plastic bag filled with gold glitter. Close the bag and shake. Gently remove the egg, tap off excess and leave to set.

For another metallic look, cover a few eggs using patterned gold tape.
