Easter Eggs

Martha has an old magazine with a collection of colorful easter baskets. My favorite has always been the blue! This year I finally got around to making my own. Here's Martha's original:

Glittered Floral Egg Basket

egg boxes (I guess that's what we'll call them. I found mine at Michaels)
two or three shades of blue paint
white glitter
mini faux flowers
hot glue gun

First you will need to paint your eggs. While the second coat is still wet, add the glitter. 
When you are waiting for the eggs to dry, cut your lil' blooms off of your faux flowers.

Choose a pattern to put your blooms on your eggs. Then, using your hot glue gun, glue them onto your egg. This one is for my mother at Easter brunch. I put little name tags on each and filled them with our family members' favorite candy.

Three doggies will be at our house for Easter brunch too. Can't forget the doggies!

They're ready for my guests! These were so simple to make (albeit messy!) and turned out so beautiful.

Here's a closeup of the pretty blue eggs.

....I'm not sure I want to give them away now that I see them all together...hmm maybe they can eat the treats and give me back my eggs! Martha would frown on that. ;)


  1. They seriously are really pretty. They are very sweet, spring-ish, they have just the right amount of sparkle and are a perfect addition to your spring decorations. LOVE THEM!!

  2. These are beautiful!!!!!! Great job.....

  3. These are every bit as pretty as Martha's. I don't blame you for not wanting to give them away.
