Every spring I love growing pots of wheatgrass to give as gifts and just to have around the house for springtime. My sister Design Mom actually taught me this trick a long time ago. (read instructions on how to grow the grass here.) But it is still one of my favorite things to do in the Springtime. I paint a few pots with designs or quotes about springtime and take them to friends. It’s perfect for the time when it is almost-Spring-but-still-cold. And, since wheatgrass only needs a few days to grow – ours will be ready in time for Easter!
I did a version of these last year that never made it to the blog so when I saw Easter on the calendar (it comes so early this year) I knew I wanted to share this project. These Watercolor Letter Easter Eggs aren’t only cute and easy to make, they also make a great placecard holder. Display them at your Easter Table or hide them around for friends to find and piece together a secret message.
I love the idea of decorating simple and beautiful eggs through calligraphy. But let’s be honest, it’s difficult to write in a pretty font on a rounded surface. So, this year we had Julie Manwaring make us some templates to apply using tattoo paper. They were easy to make and even easier to clean up. Now, that’s a project I can get behind.
PS - Remember this fun confetti egg game ? I’m hoping we play again this year!
Happy Easter! Here is a project that is a cute little addition to an easter basket. These paper carrots are so easy they will honestly take you ten minutes and you probably already have everything you need to make these at home. Really. Thanks to my sweet niece Emma for helping me!
