Easter is less than a month away so that means it's time to get our egg decorating on! In fact, I spent all weekend concocting egg decorating ideas with the "help" of my 3 yr. old Hazel, and by the time Sunday evening rolled around we had 3 dozen pretty eggs and a week full of ideas for you! Is it any surprise that I would kick off Easter Egg Week with flower embellished eggs?
I so hope you aren't sick of my 101 uses for artificial flowers! From floral purses, to hearts, to balloons, once I find a crafting medium I love, I will pretty much put it on anything. It turns out they look awfully pretty on Easter eggs too!
I tried out a new-to-me product for this project and I loved the results. I found these "dyeable craft eggs" at Michaels for $2.99 for a dozen. They look like real eggs but unlike hard boiled eggs, they last forever! Of course, you can use real eggs if you prefer. Here's what you'll need:

Supplies for DIY Floral Easter Eggs
- Dyeable craft eggs (or regular hard boiled eggs)
- Egg dye
- Small artificial flowers
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
How to Make Floral Easter Eggs
1. Dye eggs according to package instructions. They will come out a nice soft pastel color.
2. If your flowers are in a bunch, clip the petals from the stem using a wire cutter.
3. Clip as close as you can to the base of the flower while still keeping the flower intact.
4. Add a dab of hot glue to the backside of the flower and stick on the front of your egg. That's it!
These are so feminine and delicate looking, yet I can enjoy them for years to come!
