This past week Martha put out a call for Easter eggs for her Good Egg Contest. If Martha calls, I answer. I dug through our Easter archives and created some new goodies to enter in her contest. Here are a few pictures of some of my 'good' Easter eggs from over the years.
*The Bunny Pack* - This is my favorite entry. The older boys helped me draw cute bunny faces on regular white eggs with markers. It was fun and easy to do. I love how sweet the boys' bunnies turned out. We placed the bunny eggs in mini-cupcake liners to complete the cutesy look. The little pom-pom stickers are from Martha Stewart Crafts.
*The Egg Throne* - For the perfect dark chocolate bunny pop we created a throne out of a faux robin's egg, paper greens and a tiny ceramic pot. The green paper leaves were made using my neighbor's new cricut explore machine (it's awesome!).
*The Glitterati Eggs* - Glittered eggs always look good because they add sparkle and depth. They are also very versatile. They are relatively easy to make it will look good year after year.
*The Traditional Dip-Dyed Eggs* - These are perfect for the kids to do. They love getting creative and experimenting with different colors. A simple rubber band applied to the egg before dying can have interesting results.
*The Favorite Eggs* - Washi paper eggs are my favorite. My grandmother taught me how to make them and I have a few that she made in my collection so they are special to me for both sentimental and asthectic reasons. This year I paired them with my new jadeite and pink bunny egg holders.
Hope you make some good eggs this year!
