Crafternoon Easter Decor ~ My Easter Happy
So with both of my kids grown and moved out of the house I was left with the sad realization that I had no one to dye Easter eggs with anymore :( . (Yes, we dyed them every year, even into their adulthood, lol)
Since the kids aren't around to dye eggs, well they surely wouldn't come around to eat a bunch of boiled eggs! And that's when the Egg Gods smiled down on me and I came across some cardboard eggs at the grocery store all wrapped up to look like a dozen real eggs! I swooped down on them like a momma bird and brought them home to let the decorating begin!!
I used some Americana Chalk Paint in Blue, Yellow, Coral, and Gray and painted the eggs. And then I took some faux boxwood greenery and made a small wreath from it. I have a beautiful vintage floral bucket that I filled halfway with plastic grocery bags for filling and topped it with Spanish moss, then placed the wreath on top of the bucket around the rim and put the eggs in. I finished it by tying a white wire filled ribbon around the handle of the bucket.
Although this was not quite as much fun as decorating eggs with my kiddos, I enjoyed creating something beautiful for my home and in my own way the tradition continues!!
