The Eggs Factor

I think my girls must have the 'Eggs Factor'. They have been so productive the last few weeks by laying eggs every day for me. I decided to do something a bit different with them.

I made a hole in the egg with a large needle in the top and the bottom and blew the egg so I was left with an empty shell.

I secured a rubber band onto a piece of matchstick, then put it into the egg and started to decorate them.

For this one I wrapped rubber bands around it then soaked it in strong cold tea for a day.

For these two, I used stickers before soaking them

And the natural look with a few stars

But then I got a bit carried away and tried to re-create Noah's Ark!

Finally, I ran out of eggs - which is probably a good thing as the animals were getting too large to fit !

Happy Easter


  1. They're super, Diane! Have a very happy Easter. I'm not artistic at all so will have to stick with the shop made chocolate variety!

  2. Lovely, Di, it brings back so many memories of the days when my Mother used to decorate eggs for me, a very long time ago, and your decorations are lovely, and especially the arrangement with the bunnies and chicks...Happy Easter, Carole.

  3. Have you been reading my blog posting The perfect step-by-step article!
