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.
This week I could not help myself. I loved the edible Easter terrarium that I created last year for the family. So this year, I decided to turn these mason jars into individual easter terrariums that I could put in the kid’s Easter baskets. They were a huge hit Easter morning and came together using supplies from my local big box stores.
