For those who celebrate it, Easter eggs may be the best accoutrement of the holiday. Even those who don’t celebrate Easter can get in on the springtime fun of decorating eggs.
But let’s think outside the carton for a moment, shell we? (sorry, but that was worth it, right?) This year, we’re all about trying something new instead of the same old tried-and-true white vinegar and fizzy tablet method for decorating Easter eggs. Some of our current favorites are ones we can do ourselves, others are by artists that we can merely admire, while still others (and these are our faves, always) are ones we can buy.
Easter Egg Art We Can Do Ourselves: Well, OK, not this self. But maybe yourself. These knitted eggs are absolutely adorable in a bowl or on a branch. And these fabric eggs would be so cute tucked in a carton as a centerpiece. The quilled paper eggs will take longer, perhaps, but maybe an enterprising child could help out. The color combinations for each of these would be endless. The links will take you to how-tos.
Easter Egg Art We Can Merely Admire: Check out these embroidered eggs by Ukranian artist Forostyuk Inna. Apparently they’re duck eggs, not chicken, so the shell is stronger, but beyond that, we have no idea how it’s done. Beautiful.
Easter Egg Art We Can Buy: Yippee! These chenille eggs are available on etsy. So cute.
Egg Art Canvas Wall Art That’s Suitable Year-Round: We love the look and the sentiment of this cheery piece by Shelly Kennedy. Even when Easter is long-gone, it will fill us with hope for Spring!
