Easter Joy

All is well here - two little seven year olds are very content with a cup of warm Milo and an Easter egg. Their big sis has gone to an Easter party, and as they were feeling very hard done by, I staged a mini Easter egg hunt for the twins. Today also marks the start of the school holidays, and if any of you are especially creative, here are a few gorgeous Easter decorations you could try...

Doodle eggs - blow out the yolk and doodle to your hearts content with a black sharpie

These ones have a coat of acrylic paint and then doodles drawn on with a white out pen

A biro pen is used for these feathers, and simple lettering again with a sharpie

More fabulous ideas

Patterns using acrylic paint in pinks & yellows look so pretty

These little beauties are neon dip-dyed eggs, click here for instructions

Adorable little hand made bunnies, I especially love the black & white fabric used

Sir Hopsalot (my fav bunny) - his soft body is built on a flexible wire that allows you to position him


  1. The bunny is amazing!
    I was keen to paint some eggs with blackboard paint until I discovered I can't drain them for the life of me! Maybe I should paint whole eggs.. Happy Easter! :)

  2. I thought I was busy......
    You are setting the bar pretty high getting these done! ;o)
    Happy Easter!!!

  3. What beautiful pics Vic. Even I - Ms NOT Nigella - am tempted to test my patience and try that with the girls tomorrow. My 9 year old has a very special bunny but Sir Hopsalot gives "her" a serious run for her money. Have a lovely Easter Vic. Hope you're keeping dry in the Bay - we've been warned of a weather bomb for days but it's been balmy and lovely. Annie x

  4. love this idea with the eggs...

  5. What a great Easter post, love those "sharpie" eggs. I'm a definite doodler so will have to try these out next year. Hope you don't mind me linking up to your blog post tomorrow to share this inspiration.


  6. That bunny hopping is soooooo cute!!! Just stumbled upon your blog and I'm glad I did! So now I'm following you! Hope to see you over at my place when you get a chance!
    Have a lovely day!
    love, Olga

  7. These are so cool Vic! Especially loving the pattern made with the sharpie!
    Happy Easter...

  8. Those eggs look amazing! I dont think my attempt would look so pretty! I hope you and the family have a lovely Easter Vic :)
