Easter Eggs and Easter Baskets

Posted by Sandra on April 10, 2009

east7The kids decorated the Easter eggs last night, and we had so much fun (and made such a mess!):

And then we made gift baskets for the grandmas, so they can have an Easter decoration made by Autumn!

We used real eggs that we had blown out:

Then picked up some pretty little bows:

Then used hot glue to affix them to each egg:

I picked up the little colorful baskets at the Dollar store, along with the moss… put a drop of hot glue on the bottom of each egg, and now they have pretty little centerpieces for their tables this holiday:

This is such an easy and fun project… it’s just that your family will have to eat lots of omelettes or scrambled eggs while you are making them!

    How do you make omelettes out of hardboiled eggs???

      Those eggs are blown out (in the description). To do that, use a needle to poke a hole in each end. Use a larger needle or a nail to make one of the holes a little bigger, and make sure it’s long enough to poke up inside to break up the yolk. Then blow thru the small hole until it all comes out in a bowl. Run it under water until some goes in the larger hole, shake it around to rinse it out, then blow that water out too. Leave it on a paper towel to dry overnight. Then you’ll have a centerpiece that will last years, as long as you store it gently! 😀
