DIY cement Easter Eggs
We have such a good DIY for ya on this lovely Friday-before-Easter. And it’s actually doable before Sunday, if you aren’t keen on waiting another year before giving it a try. Shannon Von Eschen created these cement eggs with her sister-in-law, who raises chickens and always has an abundance of farm fresh eggs. Instead of dying, they drained them to create molds for the décor. Tutorial in the post!
This year, instead of dying, staining, speckling, or painting them, we drained the eggs (and saved them for a yummy scramble!) and then created permanent, reusable ones by filling the shells with a quick drying cement. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, but they were a surprisingly fast project, it wasn’t expensive, and they turned out SO cute! Their natural gray color matches all my décor, and even my toddler thinks their fun! The bonus is that I’m not afraid if he wants to “play” with the decor on our table as it would be almost impossible to break these eggs.
Aren’t they stunning? Click here for the full tutorial.
