    Super cute! Love the nails, too.

    I crocheted some little egg cozies for plastic eggs. They are adorable, but I want to do something else this year! I also have some hand painted eggs from Austria (they use real eggs that are holloed out and paint them).

    Beautiful ideas,especially the Decoupage! Last year I dyed eggs in strong brewed coffee..Nothing special but they turned out so pretty:) Where do you get unpainted wooden eggs? Thanks!

    My husband and I just started a tradition of painting wooden eggs last year for our daughter’s first Easter. This year (at 21 months) she painted hers by rolling it around in an old tissue box. We’re displaying the eggs every year as something special to look back on.

    Angela-you can find the wooden eggs at JoAnn’s.

    I am impressed that you can get those little stamps to line up straight! Mine always look like a drunk person did them! Or like i was possibly contemplating alternative spellings… LOL! Any tips? :)

    So what’s on the eggs before the sharpies? So pretty.. looks like linen or some kind of paper?

    Wow, so beautiful and you made so many different kinds! We have egg allergy in our family so we painted wooden eggs this year – but so many more awesome ideas here to learn from. Thanks for sharing!
