Three Things You Need To Do This Easter

29/03/2018

1. Paint Eggs

I’ve ALWAYS wanted to do this! I don’t think I have ever done my own home made, hand painted eggs. I was so excited to do this until I found out how you had to get the egg out of the shell. I did one and then got Jarek to do the rest. 

I’ll leave a link HERE to the video I watched. It was actually quite simple but just a bit too time consuming. I was determined to make loads so I was baking and eating scrambled egg like no bodies business. ha ha!

Once they were all clean and ready to go I decided to do two rather experimental decorating ideas. The first, glitter of course. I had some of the Mod Podge glue and loose glitter left over from my birthday last year so I thought, “eh perfect!”.

The other I found was on pinterest. Like everything on pinterest they made it look super easy and sure I thought “what could go wrong”. It did work, just not in the way it looked in the pictures so I was a bit disappointed! I wouldn’t advise doing this. I will however say nail varnish is great to use so I painted a few and then Jackson Pollocked the shite out of them!

I’ve been trying to get rid of a lot of my nail varnish so eh perfect timing!

I’ll add more images here tomorrow afternoon. sorry 

2. Easter tree

I’m so glad that this is a thing! I have no idea how long this has been a thing but I was only made aware of it about 2 years ago. I’m sure you are aware by now that I’m a big fan of celebrating, decorating and making a fuss really ha ha.

So this year I’m having one! I actually found it difficult to find twigs to create my “tree” I ended up stopping some in the market. I think they were just random display but I asked for them and she sold me some so I was happy enough! They were already painted pink, I didn’t really want pink but actually I think for Easter it will work.

I also found these “twigs” in Dunelm which I just couldn’t walk away from. I think they just add a little bit of cuteness. They were a bit pricey, but I suppose I’ll have them for next year.

3. Easter Chocolate Nests

These are so quick and easy that there is no excuse not to make them! You can use any chocolate, I just LOVE galaxy. I chose to use All-Bran Original because it gives the best nest effect!
