Every year the kids and I decorate eggs for Easter. Some years, we use the traditional dyeing kits. They’re always great fun and I love the way my kids wriggle up their noses at the colorful dishes filled with white vinegar. In years past, we have also tried our hand at using sharpies, decorating with pysansky techniques and even making natural ones like these. I made these beautiful eggs with ordinary ingredients from my kitchen pantry. Using white shelled eggs as my base, I was able to dye eggs naturally with herbs and spices. I love the way they turned out.
I love creating and I am super excited with you all to share that in addition to seeing me on HGTV and HGTV Gardens, I will now be a regular contributor to DIY Network’s Made + Remade! My first post that I did for them is how to create this gorgeous paper flower! I know. Yes, it looks super complicated but this paper wall flower came together so simply anyone, even the kids can make one at home with you. They’ll just need some assistance with the hot glue gun.
A couple of years ago, the kids and I made edible Easter terrariums and they were a huge hit. We had so much fun that we decided to make ones for Christmas this year. We couldn’t decide on the theme so we made three edible holiday terrariums – a woodland gingerbread cottage scene, a candy cane tree with presents and Scottie dog, and a snowman on a graham cracker and candy cane sled.
