Easter is on the way, so here are some great decoration ideas for your home, to get into the swing of Spring. These activities are also fun to do with the kids.
Easter Egg Place Cards
Vamp up your place cards for Easter lunch, with these personalized eggs. All you need is a small paintbrush to add some color to your eggs. Once dry, handwrite each guest’s initials with a gold paint pen.
You don’t need to go out and buy new decorations, if you have old left over crepe paper balls, you can easily make them into Easter bunnies with the addition of craft paper ears, eyes, and whiskers, plus pom-poms for the nose and eyes. Easy as pie, and will look adorable.
Step 1: For each egg, cut out a 5-inch square of patterned material. Lightly dampen the fabric, then lay it flat, right side up, and place your egg in the center. Gather the fabric tightly around the egg, and secure with a rubber band. (Note- it is better to use a hand-blown egg).
Step 2: Place eggs in a single layer in a pot and add enough water to cover them by 2 inches. Add 4 tablespoons of white vinegar. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes.
Step 3: Remove eggs with tongs and cool about 20 minutes. Then unwrap the fabrics to reveal the beautiful designs.
