These look like fun projects to introduce to our grandchildren. They LOVE crafting!
Although the traditional way of doing this is fun, if you don't have time for all the preparations, or if you can't afford the tools, but still really want to decorate eggs, you can buy a handful of wooden eggs. Just prime, sand, and paint the base colour the day or event the weekend before. Then all you have to do is pull out some permanent markers, paint markers, or, if you have the skills, fine brushes and paints, to decorate in traditional style. You can also do very modern styles too.
The nice thing about wooden eggs, is that they aren't as likely to get broken, so you have a long lasting hand decorated egg that can be passed down through the generations.
While I have one egg that my grandmother decorated in the traditional way, its not in great shape and may not end up getting passed down, whereas the wooden ones I did with my daughter will be around for much longer.
I think its great to do both if you can, but if life is just too busy, rather than skipping it altogether, you can still do it using alternatives, like we did.
This is one I could share with my daughter :) Love crocheted florals!
My Grandson would adore these!
Ad me to the list please! I'd love to try these projects.
COOL! This would be a great reference and learning/teaching tool!
LOL! This would be SO much fun for my husband and I to do with our grandson!
Man, that is ONE UGLY pair of pants! Ill fitting too. The fabric might have worked better in another garment, but it just doesn't work here.
Love it! Now I have a way to make those ratty old T-shirts of my husband's disappear into something useful and decorative! :)
What a cool and colorful way to use strips!
