Simple yet fun DIY Easter project!

Friday, 18 April 2014

I love this time of the year don't you? The sun's shining, the spring flowers are out, the nights are longer....and there's chocolate everywhere. What could possibly be better?! Oh and there's that delicious Easter lunch to look forward to on Sunday too. In case you're in charge of laying the table for the big event - here's some perfectly Danish Easter egg painting inspiration from Ferm Living to enjoy. Simple yet fun and the result is oh so cool.






Ferm Living

Here are my tips for egg painting:

- add eggs to water and simmer for 10 minutes before removing and placing in cold water
- lay out some newspaper to protect your surface
- use a brush and acrylic paint to decorate the egg, painting one half first and let it dry before painting the other half.
- to get a beautiful result for your easter table stick to one colour scheme for all your eggs but use different patterns.

Time to get cracking....(sorry)

I hope you have a very Happy Easter and see you Monday!

  2. So nice!
    (but is it ok to eat them? even if you have not used alimentary colours?)

    1. Hi Christina - that's a good question. I just googled it and found some answers here:https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110418102100AATE1El. If you'd like to decorate the eggs and then eat them (rather than for decoration) you might want to consider dipping them in food colouring instead?

    2. Thanks! Let's say that if I'll go with the acrylic paint I'll avoid to eat them and I'll use them just as a decoration ;-)
