My Pressed Floral Easter Eggs

March 23, 2016

If you haven’t already guessed, I have a soft spot for flowers, and pretty much anything with a floral print. Spring has just begun, and it’s these warmer months that really make blooms feel extra special. That said, as I got to prepping for Easter, I wondered what kind of festive eggs to craft up this year.

I recently came across some beautiful pastel hydrangeas at the farmers market which fully inspired this share. Without much time or many supplies needed  (you can buy everything you need at most grocery stores), these pressed floral easter eggs bring in the season, while also participating in holiday traditions.

What you’ll need:

  • Blown-out, or hardboiled eggs – dyed or natural
  • Multi-purpose glue, such as Elmer’s basic white glue (slightly watered down)
  • 1 small paintbrush
  • fresh flowers – try sticking to anything that has small, delicate petals (keep in mind you’ll want the flowers to lay flat on the eggs)
  • Food coloring for dying eggs (optional, note: dye the eggs first, letting them dry for a few minutes before continuing with the process below)

How to make it:

  • Select an area to place the petal and paint a small spot of glue onto the egg.
  • Place the petals over the glued area.
  • Once semi-secure, paint over the petals with glue (similar to a paper mâché technique).
  • Once all is set, let dry for about 10 minutes, and ta-da! That’s it.
