Ombre Easter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner…there are chocolates and bunnies everywhere…so here is my final bit of easter inspiration…

The ombre egg!  Now for these to work best you will need to get your egg hunting boots on and find some white eggs…I found this rather tricky and ended up finding mine at the Queen Victoria Market!  How relieved was I!

I gently boiled the eggs and while hot put them into a small chinese cup … big enough to hold the egg upright.  Then after making up a concentration of the dye solution I poured a small amount of the dye into the cup and left the egg for 5 minutes.  I added a bit of water to the dye solution and left for another 5 minutes…repeat until you have 4 or 5 levels of colour…i.e. an ombre egg!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE and I do hope you have enjoyed my little DIY take on Easter this year.

Download the easter bunting template, pick your favourite paint colour chips and start creating.  I totally recommend tracing the design onto an old plastic container lid or cardboard box…this will make it so much easier to trace.  I have designed this template for specific paint chip sizes…the ombre egg was created with the Taubmans paint chips and the easter bunny has been created using British Paints chips. Choose your favourite colours and have fun…its a handmade craft to make you smile…

Creating this bunting is super easy…the only tricky part was attaching the bunny head to the body…I used sticky tape and a little piece of cardboard to give the head extra support…apart from that, the bunting is such a decent size that it makes a great visual impact …more easter goodies on their way to be shared…
