Spring has sprung in my studio!
I spent a few days making some spring decorations. I love the way real eggs look when they are dyed, but I don't ever want to display them because I'm afraid they will go bad and start to stink! This year I finally took the plunge and "blew out" a bunch of eggs so I could decorate and display the shells. It took a while but it was worth it!
I had these egg cups in my Easter decorations but I've never found anything I liked to put inside them. While dying the other shells I thought that I would try to dye some with tea! I finally found something I like in these cups! The one in the center is my favorite, I love how dark it got. I could not get the other ones to turn that dark no mater how long I left them in the tea, it must of come from a different chicken.
The other day a friend sent me a photo that reminded me of these old tin chocolate molds. I've had them for the longest time but have never done anything with them. So I decided to make faux chocolates! I just love how they turned out! If I didn't know better I'd think that they were actually chocolates, and the best part is they have ZERO calories and I can use them as Easter decorations year after year!
Hope your having a Happy Spring!
