Egg-tastic

My DIY ideas for Easter! 

Crate & Barrel in the US is one of my favourite home stores - I asked Stephen to bring me something back on a recent trip to NYC. I said 'surprise me!' and he came back with this fab egg stand! What every household needs :-) I love it and it's timing was perfect, it gave me a chance to experiment this Easter. Here I have tied a range of pastel colour ribbons to it! Dotty, chequer, organza and stitched....

I bought some fake eggs this year and wanted to decorate them for my blog - I decided to go with glitter! This project is super easy for any age and is fast to do, the only downside is it can be rather messy! All you need is PVC glue, a glue brush, a range of glitters and ensure you have some newspaper to protect the area you're working on. I saved this coloured egg box from some yummy Cadburys 'Egg 'n' Spoon eggs but any will do from your regular eggs at home.  + Apply the glue with the brush (even spray glue could work - probably less sticky) + Choose your glitter and sprinkle away - I used a scrap bit of paper to place underneath when sprinkling so I could gather the excess glitter so none was wasted + Place in the box to dry and after 30mins or so give the eggs a shake to remove any excess glitter and they are ready to use as decoration.

Another way of displaying your decorated eggs - placed in an egg stand with some shredded paper.

On a recent trip to Ikea I noticed these large eggs on display - they open up and dinky eggs can be stored inside. To finish them off I simply tied a bow and it's all you need as a perfect Easter gift! Brilliant to use for Easter Egg hunts as the kids final prize! If you're on a budget these are perfect at 99p each and can be bought in a range of colours.
