It wouldn't be Easter without pretty decorated eggs. Create these sparkling beauties and keep them year after year.
Create a cheerful garland by stringing together dyed blown-out eggs. Use a beading needle threaded with stretchable jewelry cord. Attach the garland to a banister using additional cord; tie on lush satin bows. No staircase? Use the garland as a swag over windows or a hallway mirror.
Editors' tip: To blow out an egg, use a pushpin to put a hole in each end. Gently push a wooden skewer through one end to enlarge the hole and break the yolk. Blow into the smaller hole.
Create this decoration by standing branches in a pail filled with clean sand (the kind used in children's sand boxes), then decorating the boughs with paper birds and dyed blown-out eggs.
These adorable chick-shape egg cozies -- a playful take on British tea cozies -- keep soft-cooked eggs piping hot. Cut two simple chick shapes from yellow terry cloth. Layer the two pieces on top of each other (wrong sides out). Stitch the edges together, leaving the base open. Turn right side out. Finish by stitching eyes with black thread and sewing on a black felt beak.
