It’s that time of year again.  The time we start looking for Peter Cottontail to start hopping down that bunny trail.

I’m happy to announce some very special bunnies are now available in the All About YOU store.  They are adorable, right?

A Cute Easter Centerpiece

Published April 4, 2015 by lynn k scott

This morning, while out grocery shopping, I picked up a few candy eggs.  I probably could have chosen a brighter color, but I was also being cheap.  The pink wrapped eggs were less than a $1.50, so I went with it.  I wanted to make an Easter centerpiece for the diningroom table.

You will need:  several wine glasses, tulle (or Easter grass), candy and a tealight (or votive) candles.

When I got home, instead of using Easter grass, which goes everywhere, I opted to utilize some leftover tulle.  Cut long strips of the tulle from the roll, and then bunched it up.  Having already added five candies to each wine glass, I pushed the tulle in and flipped the wine glass upside down.  I had to add a bit more tulle to each glass so the candy stayed at the top of the glass. When I was satisfied with how the glass looked, I added some white tealights to the top of each glass.

Now, my table isn’t overly large, unless I add extra leaves to extend it.  I just made three of these and put them in a row on the table.  I used a pastel green tablecloth and it made a really cute, simple and elegant centerpiece.  Now to find some cute placemats for the table and I’ll be all set.

An Eggcelent idea!

A while back, I made some message eggs.  These are really a fun and unique way to deliver a message to someone.

The process is somewhat simple.   You need a hole in both ends of the egg.  One will be slightly larger, as this is where the tiny rolled slip of paper will enter the egg.  Once you have made the holes, blow out the contents of the eggs.  You can blow them into a bowl or down the sink; the choice is yours.

This is a really good way to get the kids to be quiet, even if it’s for a few minutes.  I mean, why not put all that hot air to work?  Ok, I know that sounds horrible.  My daughter is at the stage that silence is a sin.  I look forward to bedtime, A LOT lately! I suppose technically you could even make a mini-science lesson out of this project.

Once the yolk and egg white have been removed, gently run water through the egg to wash out any remaining egg.  Then let dry at least 24 hours.

Now you’re ready to paint.  I found using wooden food skewers work inserted into the egg works really well.  You can put either end of the skewer over a small bowl without the egg coming into contact with anything.  This is great for allowing the paint to dry.

There are a variety of ways to get the paint on the eggs.  I’ll let you experiment and have fun with that.  No two people will paint the same way anyhow.  Plus that’s a really fun part of this process.  Let your creativity shine through. Once painted, I let the eggs dry.  I keep mine on the skewer during the drying process.  I try to let them dry overnight, if possible.

I admit, I’m not the most talented painter.  I stick to easy designs but I try to differentiate them a bit.  The only real limitation is your imagination.  This is another area that kids can join in the creative fun.   Let their minds wander and see what they come up with.

I had a lot of fun making these.  These would be great for Easter, to announce a pregnancy, perhaps surprising a sports fan with an egg colored in the team colors and the note announcing tickets to a game.  No matter what the purpose you choose, painted eggs truly make an eggcelent way to communicate a surprise!
