Dress Up Your Eggs

20 Apr

Every year for Easter we gather at Grandma’s house and have the traditional fare followed by an Easter egg hunt in the backyard.  Each family is tasked with bringing 6-12 eggs for hiding. 

A couple of years ago, instead of dying my eggs, I dressed them up with cute little covers.  The covers were made primarily from baby socks!  The rest of the supplies are various craft items that you might have on hand: pipe-cleaners, small poms, feathers, google eyes and some wool felt. 

Everyone loved them and my Grandma saved them to be used again!

That year I managed to under-boil the eggs, so they weren’t great for eating, but they sure looked cute!
