some special eggs and photos for the holiday.
These are decoupage Easter eggs made with napkins!
A fun and easy project older children can try, too.
I bought pretty Easter napkins with various spring colors and
designs. I found mine at TJ-Maxx.
These designer napkins usually come in 3-ply,
so separate the colorful layer from the white layers.
Cut out the various designs so you have different size cut-outs.
Now, use Mod Podge to decoupage the cut-outs onto your eggs.
I used wood craft eggs I found at Hobby Lobby
so I can use these year after year.
But you can also blow out real eggs.
I think they turned out so pretty and am proud to show them off
in my house, displayed in a pretty Easter basket...
bedded in the matching napkins!
I also went crazy with baking.
I usually hate to bake, but I think pastel macarons
are lovely, so I HAD to try making them!
I watched several video tutorials on how to create these pretty gems and
this is the recipe I ended up trying: Easy Macarons
The pastels are soft and pretty for Easter!
I also made a batch of lemon because the yellow matched the
plate I found at a thrift store.
Once I fulfilled my macaron obsession,
I wanted to play with cake pops!
These also photographed beautifully!
Perfect for Easter photos!
While I had the Easter props out, I photographed those, too.
It's fun to look for the Easter props at thrift stores
where you can find them for CHEAP!
I discovered baskets, fake eggs, the little bunny, even the Easter grass
at a thrift store.
Kids would love to select props there!
You can find spring flowers right at your grocery store!
They brighten up you home and are beautiful in photos.
These lavender hyacinth filled my house with their sweet fragrance!
I found this pretty pastel jar at the thrift store and it
matched all my pretty spring flowers.
Look for cloth napkins, place mats and table linens for
pennies at your thrift store to add to the look!
The smocking on this one adds texture against the smooth ceramic.
Use your Easter photos to make cards
or create greetings for your social media sites
like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter.
Lots of fun Easter ideas you can try with your kids!
