As the second installment in our Pinteresting Easter activities this year, the kids really wanted to color eggs. So we colored them using the traditional purchased dye method. You know dropping the dye tablet into a mixture of vinegar and water. However, We did use muffin tins to dye the eggs, which was a very helpful tip I saw on Pinterest last year from ParentHacks.com
To jazz them up, I remembered a pin I had seen where they put mustaches on the eggs - because after all, mustaches are all the rage this year. While I'm not typically into trends, I do love a good mustache. My Pinspiration came from the Number-2-Pencil.com blog. She used black adhesive vinyl sheets and a Silhouette cutter to create the mustaches for her Easter Eggs. Since we were at Grandma’s house visiting for Easter, I didn’t have any crafting supplies with me so we improvised and used a Sharpie marker to draw mustaches on our eggs. It was beyond Easy-Peasy and came out oh-so-cute, as well.
Here’s how Melissa at the Number-2-Pencil blog made them and then our version. Hers are a little cleaner and have more of a minimalist style. Ours seem to be more whimsical or just plain goofy. What do you think?
We eventually got more creative and moved on from just mustaches to make all kinds of egg faces. You know a craft idea is good when your 13-year-old son comes over and wants to help. He was really getting into his “hippie” egg. To display the eggs, we just placed them on a plate covered with fake Easter grass. They looked adorable on the Easter table, let me tell you.
This is the second installment in my Very Pinteresting Easter series featuring cute craft and recipe ideas we found on Pinterest. Did you catch our first idea – the DIY Easter Egg Bouquet? Next up are the Bunny Butt Treat Cups we made for the kids.
Did you make or bake anything you found on Pinterest this Easter? Please share the link to your pin in the comments below. I’m always looking to add ideas to my Easter Board.
