DIY Embroidered Easter Eggs

Supplies:

  • Large plastic Easter eggs — Note: You’ll want eggs that open length-wise from top to bottom, not in the very middle of the egg.
  • Drill + drill bit — Note: Use a drill bit as small as you can manage to thread a needle and thread through
  • Quilting needle
  • Embroidery thread, various colors
  • Scotch tape
  • Sharpie
  • Printed Clipart
  1. Start by printing off some Clipart — for example, I printed off a rainbow, a flower, and a butterfly — that will fit on the front of your egg.
  2. Cut out your Clipart.
  3. Loop pieces of Scotch tape, and stick them onto the back of your cut-out Clipart. Position and stick down the tape and the Clipart onto the front of the egg.
  4. Use the Sharpie to “trace” your Clipart, but instead of tracing, you’ll be marking where you’ll be drilling holes. Once you’re done “tracing,” remove the paper and tape.
  5. Use your drill to drill small holes where you marked with the Sharpie. Be careful on this step, and wear protective eyewear!
  6. Thread your needle, then begin embroidering. Use a piece of Scotch tape to secure the loose ends of the thread. Repeat until you’re done embroidering.

DIY: Little Miss & Mr. Men Easter Eggs

What would be more delightful than finding Little Miss Sunshine and her friends in your Easter Egg basket?
I can’t think of anything. 
I mean c’mon, more than half the time they’re giggling.

Supplies
  • Boiled Eggs
  • Egg dye + supplies(vinegar, bowls, paper towels, etc.)
  • Acrylic paint + brushes
  • Pencil
  • Sharpie 
1. Sketch the faces, hands, and accessories(i.e. bows) of a Little Miss or Mr. Man on your eggs using a pencil.
2. Go over your pencil lines with the Sharpie. Let it dry.
3. Submerge your eggs in the egg dyes of the color of the Little Miss’ or Mr. Man’s body. Let the eggs dry.
4. Use acrylic paint to fill in the details, such as noses, bows/hats, and hair. Let it dry between coats of paint.
5. If necessary, touch up black lines with the Sharpie.

    Easter Weekend

    For Easter weekend, Logan and I drove up to visit Holly and her family in Logan. We hadn’t seen each other for months. I know, I know, I’m a terrible sister. She lives less than 2 hours away. But I did have a pretty good reason for not being able to spend a weekend with the Larson’s for a few months. Two words: hair school. No no no, three words: minimum security prison. 
    I was really excited to head up there and party for Easter weekend! See my cute, older sis and her three cute boys. I mean, there’s no better way to celebrate Easter. With family. …Not to mention that I’m a little too old for Easter egg hunts. One thing I love about spending holidays with family, especially my nieces and nephews, is that as I’ve gotten older the excitement of Easter egg hunts, Christmas morning(okay, just kidding. Christmas Eve and Christmas morning are still pretty exciting for me.) has died a little bit. But now that I have those aforementioned nieces and nephews, I feel excited vicariously through them. Hiding the eggs, playing Santa(playing Santa? What?! I mean…putting out cookies and milk for Santa.), dressing up for Halloween…. Oh wait, I still dress up on Halloween. If there’s one holiday that is just as applicable to grown-up’s as it is to kids, it’s Halloween. By the way, I still have plans to dress up as David Bowie from the Labyrinth. All in good time.

    Okay, enough about Halloween! It’s Easter time. Oh, by the way, Holly and I still dye eggs. Just like kids! Not even her kids were interested in dying eggs. Too juvenile? 
    No way.
    ^^^Recreated this Pinterest-popular Easter egg design: a little chick and a little bunny!
    ^^^Another Pinterest-popular design: Humpty Dumpty
    It’s really- nice to live close to family, right? Lovely weather, lovely company, lovely food, lovely holiday!

    DIY: Surprise-Carrot Cupcake Toppers

    When I saw these cute carrots at the Dollar Tree, I knew there was something I could do with them, I just wasn’t sure. There’s always cake or cupcake toppers, right? But that was just too predictable. I mean, Easter and a carrot cupcake topper? Predictablllllle.

    Then I thought of an amazing idea. One word: sprinkles!!!

    The Supplies

    • These cute powdered-candy-filled carrots
    • Sprinkles
    • Two bowls
    • Cupcakes

    1. In one of the bowls, empty out all the carrots’ powdered candy.

    2. Fill up the other bowl with sprinkles. Funnel the sprinkles in the carrots by either scooping the sprinkles in using the carrot, or by using a funnel to pour them in. Screw on the tops.

    3. Now just stick the carrots in the cupcakes! Be sure to clean the carrots before you stick them in the cupcakes.
    When your guests are ready to eat their cupcake, they can take out the carrot, open it, and sprinkle on sprinkles to their hearts’ delight!

    DIY: Chocolate Easter Bunny Cake Topper

    Happy Easter! 

    When I saw this cute ceramic bunny at the dollar store, I knew I just had to do something with it. I didn’t know what to do yet, and quite honestly I didn’t know what to do with it until I painted it seconds before I started photographing this. 

    Cute, though, right? A chocolate Easter bunny wrapped in foil. And I also love this cuz it was super cheap, and super easy!

    So here’s the how-to.

    The Supplies

    • Ceramic bunny from the trusty Dollar Tree
    • Acrylic paint: gold, yellow, blue, pink, and black
    • Paint brushes of varying sizes
    • Ribbon & scissors
    • Hot glue gun
    1. Paint the entire bunny with gold paint. Let it dry.
    2. Cut and tie a ribbon to glue to the bunny’s neck.
    3. Now that the gold paint is completely dry, you can paint the details, including the mouth, nose, ears, and eyes. Note: for the eyes, be sure to paint the whites of the eyes yellow, and the iris/pupil area blue – this is the traditional chocolate Easter bunny eyes.
    Glue on the bow.
    Place it on top the cake, and voila! It’s done! And lookin’ so cute.
    Cheap, easy, and so cute. It’s perf! 
    Hoppy Easter! (heh heh!)
