In Europe, Easter eggs are often hung on tree branches and bushes. Bring this custom into your home with these charming ornaments embellished with ribbon and trimmings.
- Food coloring
- Egg-blowing kit (available at crafts stores)
- Ribbons or rickrack
- Ear-drying craft glue
- Pearl-tipped pins (available at florists-supply stores)
Begin by dyeing and blowing out eggs.
Attach a band of ribbon or rickrack around the shell with clear-drying craft glue.
Cover a hole at one end of the egg with a silk flower or a small bow; glue in place.
Put a pearl-tipped pin through a ribbon loop, then insert pin into other hole; glue in place.
Hang the eggs from an egg tree, made from an arrangement of pussy willows or flowering branches.
