Metallic Easter Egg Decorating

eastereggs10w

In the spirit of Easter, I decided to do something I haven’t done in YEARS: dye and decorate some eggs.  This is something I always loved doing as a kid, but because plastic eggs filled with candy were always more appealing hunt and basket-wise, real egg decorating was eventually pushed aside.  So this year I spent Saturday afternoon of my Easter weekend playing around with egg decorating, and I tried something I hadn’t before: a metallic paint pen.  How had I not thought of this sooner?!  It was super easy, and the result was awesome.  I thought I would share some photos of my “metallic Easter egg” project (and a special throwback Easter photo) with you guys.

Here I am on Easter back in 1991, just under two years old.  Some of my fondest memories of my earlier childhood are shopping with my mom to pick out a special dress for Easter Sunday.  We did it every year, and it usually involved a combination of ruffles, lace, bows, and floral print.  I have about seven years of Easter photos in these types of dresses, until I got to the age where I no longer dug the super girly frilly outfits, haha!

Hope you guys are having a great weekend :)

    Me & my brother attempted to dye eggs this easter too. We tried experimenting by trying to stick leaves and flowers and things onto it in the hopes it would show up in the dye. Nope. It was a huge fail but we had a lot of fun doing it!
