Today I wanted to share some fun ways to decorate Easter eggs!
I have always loved Henri Matisse and his Cut-Out era artwork. It translates so perfectly to an Easter egg DIY! Simply cut Matisse-inspired shapes out of tissue paper and paste onto the eggs!
These might be the prettiest Easter eggs I ever did see! This method uses nail polish and can be a bit messy. I would try this on some faux-eggs so they can be reused as decor each year. Read the tutorial HERE.
This DIY is inspired by the beautiful Orangerie fabric! Check The Hunted Interior for the full tutorial. Another idea is to use leftover wrapping paper or wallpaper with this method!
And now for the most FUN Easter eggs! How cute are these guys?! Full tutorial can be found HERE.
