There are so many cool ideas around the web at the moment for Easter Egg decoration that I had to grab some of them and try some ideas myself. I found a big bag of polystyrene eggs which were very cheap in my local and wonderful bookshop – By The Book in Virginia and yes that is a blatant plug but I do honestly love that shop.
And couldn’t wait to play with them, I assembled some paint and some napkins to decoupage with and I was on my way.
The first set of eggs I decided to paint with Duck – Egg Blue chalk paint – it took two coats but the paint looked great – Tip when painting use a toothpick in the bottom of the egg to hold the egg so you can paint easily and then you can stand it in a polystyrene block to dry .
When they were dry I got out my ribbons and gems and started decorating them, the sparkly bunny I got from the bookshop too.
They are now all in a glass bowl in my living room which is Cream and Brown with Blue accents.
The Second set I went a bit more colourful with – I decorated the eggs with paper napkins decoupaged on the egg with a pva mix.
Again using a toothpick to hold so not to get sticky.
