Let’s talk about Easter eggs!

Nothing says Easter quite like Easter eggs, am I right? I love decorating beautiful Easter eggs – I’ve painted Easter eggs, made floral Easter eggs, made an Easter egg wreath, and covered eggs in music paper.

But at the end of the day, there are only so many ways you can display Easter eggs. You can toss them into a bowl, add them to a centerpiece, and that’s about it. But in this craft, I’m getting creative and displaying Easter eggs in a frame.

It’s kind of like a 2-for-1 craft. You can paint and decorate your eggs, and then create a cute piece of framed art to hang on your wall or display on a shelf.

For about a minute, I considered doing a random pattern.  But I quickly came to my senses and realized that an irregular pattern was not going to happen… Don’t fight the OCD, people!

Just keep gluing… Blue. Green. Red… Blue. Green.Red.

Let the glue dry, and you’re done!  I placed my new art on my mantle, next to a sweet teal glitter bunny that I also picked up at the dollar store.
