I can’t believe Easter is this weekend. It totally snuck up on us, but I guess that’s partly because of the new little human being that is ruling our lives right now. It’s Ryder’s first Easter and although he has no clue about Easter and dyeing eggs and the massive amounts of candy that are dished out in cute Easter baskets, we still felt the need to decorate Easter eggs. But let’s get real–when your living on 2-3 hours of sleep at a time, who the heck has time or energy to decorate Easter eggs?!?! Enter, easy sticker Easter eggs. Yes– stickers. And because I felt a little guilty about how easy these were to make, I decided to make a cute decorative Easter egg holder. I only made a half dozen eggs, because I don’t eat hard boiled eggs. Jon on the other hand loves them, and was so excited to see that I was “decorating” Easter eggs this year for Ryder.
Last month, I received my box of supplies from the 12 Months of Martha campaign. It was fully of beautiful spring colors and products.
Here are all the items I received in my box:
Pink Layered Pom Pom Stickers, Doily Lace Gold Thread, Vintage Girl Specialty Ribbons, Fabric Camelia Stickers, Vintage Acrylic Flower Embellishments, Garden Butterfly Layering Punch, Cherry Blossom Deep Edge Punch, Vintage Girl Pink Pom Poms, Vintage Girl Cupcake Wrappers, Vintage Girl Food Picks, Vintage Girl Coasters, Doily Lace Cupcake Stand, Garden Strawberry Mini Treat Wrap, Dimensional Zinnia Stickers, Butterflies, Circle Edge Punch Starter Kit, Fabric to fabric decoupage, Multi surface decoupage – gloss, Decoupage Brush Set, Geometric Lace, Floral Lace, Craft Paint (Bubble Gum, Lemon Drop, Winter Mint, Blueberry Slush, Blue Sky, Pink Dahlia, Pea Shoot, Meadowlark)
After I sifted through the box I knew I wanted to make some sort of Easter egg with the product. That’s when it hit me to put stickers on Easter eggs.

First up, cut the egg carton using scissors. I cut eight slots first to practice, then trimmed it down to 6 which is what I needed. This all depends on how many eggs you decide to decorate. [Continue reading]
