Spring is here!

This weekend, I’m home again for Easter. An Easter tradition in the Walls house is dying Easter eggs. We have done this for so many years and I wanted to find something to make the tradition a little bit different. I found this pin that repurposed the eggs that we dyed into a beautiful Easter centerpiece with flowers.

Here’s the supplies I used:

  • Three different types of flowers (I went to Walmart)
  • A glass/clear bowl, big enough to put Easter eggs in
  • A smaller cup/bowl that fits into the first bowl (to put the flowers in)
  • Enough hard boiled eggs to fill the bowl
  • Easter egg dye kit
  • Vinegar
  • Water

The first thing I did was cook my eggs. I put the eggs I needed into the pot and covered them with water. I let the water come to boil. After it was boiling I shut the stove off and put a lid on the pot. I let it sit covered for 15 minutes. Then I drained the water and let the eggs cool.

Now it was time to add the flowers. I cut them short enough to fit inside the cup. Then, I arranged them nicely. After I was happy with how they looked, I added water. I’m really happy with how this project turned out. Happy Easter!
