Bunny + Carrot Egg Decorating :: Family Fun

I originally shared this Bunny and Carrot Egg Decorating tutorial over at It’s Overflowing.  I was soooo excited to get to be a part of the fun.  Thanks again, Aimee, for the invite and hosting. 

Have you ever went to a party or event and felt a little under-dressed?  That was me at the Easter Egg Hunt Aimee hosted…  I approached it with a family friendly, fun idea — while some of the other ladies showed up with incredibly fancy, decorative ideas. Oh well.  After a little blushing, I still walked away excited to be in on the fun — and I made some new friends.  However, I was excited to be able to bring the fun back to you all today.  This is 100% pure family fun {smile}.

What’s a bunny without a carrot?  I couldn’t bare to make the bunny eggs without the carrot eggs.  How cruel would that be?  {giggle} Anywho, with a few crafty supplies and a little creativity — these cuties are super easy and you’ll have a “hopping” good time!

So, let’s start with a few supplies:
Hard Boiled Eggs (of course), Orange coloring, Pink Pom-Poms,
Wiggle Eyes (optional), Glue Gun, Black Magic Maker, Scissors and White Foam.

With the bunny eggs, you’ll simply start by hot gluing on your wiggly eyes and pink pom-pom.  Then free hand a few whiskers. Be careful with moisture from the egg — it can make those whiskers a little problematic if the egg isn’t completely dry.

I didn’t take pictures of the bunny ear process, but you’ll trace out the ears on your white foam — whatever shape and size you desire.  Cut and hot glue them on as well.  I added a few eyelashes and a pink bow to the little girl.  Accessorizing may be a fun add-on for your family festivities.

The carrot eggs are simply soaked in the orange coloring for 15-20 minutes, so you can get a bright orange.  I also added the vinegar to my water — as suggested on the packaging.  Wrap some green raffia together, tie or knot and hot glue that to the top of your orange egg — and, well, you have yourself a DARLING little carrot egg.

And you’re done!  How fun was that?

    This is so darn cute. Thanks for the great idea! Will be doing this with the kiddos soon, I'm sure. :)

    So cute! These have lots of possibilities for other holidays too! I know, the egg thing is usually just for Easter, but it doesn't have to be!

    These are so cute and I can picture my oldest boy loving to make these. Thanks so much for sharing at Toot Your Horn Tuesday :)

    Okay, this is seriously adorable! And I absolutely will be creating these this Easter. Those boring old dyed eggs are so passe…

    And what I love is the budget and the simplicity. Downright cinchy … and it would be perfect at our "It's a Cinch" link party going on now. When you link up at one blog you're automatically linked up to all five of us fab co-hosts!

    Hope to see you at the party!

    :)

    Too cute! We did something similar to the bunnies on foil wrapped eggs for the kids' preschool friends a few years ago, and will probably do the same this year…bunnies + chocolate = good times!

  10. Kelli @ RTSM says

    Those are so fun! I LOVE the carrot ones. I may have to make a few to take along to Easter dinner this year. Stopping by from TT&J. Have a great weekend!

  11. Kelly @ Eclectically Vintage says

    I absolutely love these!! What a fun Easter centerpiece they would make. My girls would absolutely love doing these – love the tips for getting that really bright orange (mine always turn out so dull).

    So glad you joined our Cinch party.

    And I featured you today! And I'm sending this link to my sister-in-law (who is hosting Easter) because she likes to make fun egg creations for the table setting …

    Thanks for linking and I hope you didn't find me "tacky" when I asked you to link up. Apparently it's bad form. But honestly I only invite things that inspire me …

    :)
