Brittany from The House That Lars Built posted the most beautiful botanical Easter egg DIY last week. I fell in love and instantly wanted to recreate them, but balked because I hate painting Easter eggs a solid color (they’re round so they fall over and get nicks or finger prints, you have the wait for the paint dry, etc). The black seemed necessary though- it made them so gorgeously bold. At a Michael’s run for work the other day, I found 2 cartons of 1/2 price black chalkboard eggs and it was a sign that I needed to make them. Last year, I found a gorgeous vintage book (written in the 20s, mine was printed in the 50s) with images of painted wildflowers of the Pacific coast, as well as information about each flower. I looked through it to find flowers that grow in my beloved state and painted a few on the eggs. I absolutely love them!
Happy almost Easter!!
