Fun Easter Craft Projects

Happy Good Friday everyone!! We are so glad that the weekend is here. Easter is around the corner and we have a few decorating ideas for the holiday to jazz up your home. Shermika and I adore spring, so you know that we had to have a lot of color on our dining room table.

We’ve finally finished our Easter projects, but haven’t started baking yet as we will probably do it tonight if the power doesn’t go out. Don’t you just love the eggs we have pictured above? Tomorrow we will be showing these cute/fun inedible eggs on Fox 6 News around 8:10 AM so do check us out!

Update at 11:48 PM on 4.7.12: Here is the video from Easter Fox 6 segment. Extra pic added below too.

 

Tonight, with our nephew, we will make a few edible eggs, but will not show them until after we’re off the air, so check back then. The sis and I came up with 2 easy ways to decorate eggs that are very inexpensive and simple.

First up we have the chalkboard eggs. The kids in us love these!!!

To make these you need: chalkboard paint, a garbage bag, newspaper, gloves, & plastic eggs. This project is super simple and pleases a frugal belle. Just go outside, spray the eggs on one side and let them dry for about 15 minutes. Next, flip and repeat. We’ve found that if you do short bursts of spray the eggs don’t roll all over the place. Wait 24 hours before writing on them with chalk. Now, you have an eggcelent creation!

We found that if you line them up against the newspaper they don't roll.

Next, we have sequined eggs. We made these with short straight pins, sequins, time, an imagination, and small styrofoam eggs. Y’all know these are right up our alley since we like to think we’re somewhat stylish. And, the best part is that you can use these eggs as decoration after Easter. Tamika did her thing on these!

Start with the outline first. With this egg I used the silver as the outline color.

Once you have your outline completed, start adding your next color underneath the outline sequins like so.

Once you have the entire oval covered with your 2nd color you can just start filling in the white space. Use an object to help you completely push the pin into the egg.

Complete until done.

This is another great craft project that won’ break the bank. It does take time, but it’s worth it. Just pin the sequins to the egg. The size of your eggs will determine what length of straight pins you need. For example, you don’t want to use long pins on a small egg like these because you could stick yourself and that isn’t cute! Afterwards, you will have a beautiful creation that any Easter bunny would be proud of.

Hoping y’all have a happy and blessed Easter! What are you Easter plans?

  2. The sequins one would definitely be cool as decoration. I might do it and put them in a bowl on my dresser. The chalkboard ones, I am so sure children will love well after Easter is over.

    How cool is it that you Belles are back on television sharing your craftiness. So, are you going to be regulars on the show?
