[ eggcellent egg decor ]

WITH EASTER approaching fast, I love these charming decor ideas using simple dyed eggs...

1} string eggs together into a garland using a narrow ribbon {if you're not into blowing out the yolks, use painted papier mach├ę eggs, or drill holes into plastic eggs instead}


2} group eggs in nests along a buffet table {these are great with hard candy eggs as well}


3} poke a branch into an urn, glue on some paper flowers and top the floral foam with moss and eggs


4} insert a narrow vase of flowers into a large glass vase or jar and fill the gap with eggs {these can be real, paper, candy or plastic since they won't be submerged in water}


5} create an easter tree by inserting white branches into a bucket of sand, glue ribbon onto eggs to hang and create some pretty birds from scrapbook paper


Easy peasy! Have you done any Easter decorating?

Not this year but I did #3 once, without the eggs, and liked it so much I left the flowers up for years :)

I have some special eggs hanging from my dinning room light....some in a glass vase with a candle in the middle....low key this year.
Love all these ideas! Have a wonderful Monday!

I love Easter...I've done nothing so far...hoping the trial is over by Thursday (not liking the idea of being sequestered for the long weekend)
Thanks for the inspiration (and the reminder )

I love the egg garland and I think it would look so cute strung on my staircase, but I don't think I have the patoence to sit and make one. I like the nests "runner" too. Now that project I think I can handle! :)
