Last weekend I went to the beach with some of my creative friends. They hauled in bags, boxes and supplies of all kinds to spend the weekend creating. One of the projects on the agenda included decorating eggs.
Since I’m a fan of all things CHICKEN, and since it’s almost Easter, I thought I’d pass along the project and show you some of the fantastic results.
First, if you want to keep your eggs for long-term (instead of eating them later), carefully blow the egg out. To do this, poke a tiny hole on each end of the raw egg and blow air in one hole forcing the egg out the other hole (or, if you want to avoid sore cheeks the next day, you can use a rubber ear syringe to blow puffs of air into the egg).
In the process of hollowing the eggs, some might break, but don’t throw the pieces away! One of my friends thought to decorate a broken eggshell, and it started a whole new round of creativity.
(If you’re not into hollowing your eggs, but you want to keep them for longer, use paper mache’ or plastic eggs to decorate.)
Decorate the eggs with paint, glitter, stickers, Easter grass, colorful decorated tissue paper or napkins. Use stencils, paintbrushes, sticks, Q-tips and fingers for application tools. The materials to use are only limited by your imagination. Use glue and Modge Podge for adhesives, when needed.
Here’s a gallery of some of the finished creations from the beach weekend to get your creative juices flowing. There is, of course, one requirement: HAVE FUN
See what you can do with a cracked egg??
Admit it, you’re anxious to try it now, right? 🙂
