Getting ready for Easter

Happy Easter! So light and kind Holiday to spend with Your family. Give up buying already painted eggs and enjoy the process with Your Mom, kids or friends. πŸ™‚

I’ll share some our methods of painting eggs. First of all, it’s a…

1. Traditional onion husk. Painting with onion husk is very ecological, you can’t be afraid of what you eat with the egg. To get some patterns You should cover an egg with some soaked husk and put it into a stocking and tie a knot.

Boil the eggs in a water with husk – they will turn brown (boil onion husk for about 45 min to colour the water before you boil the eggs in it).

However, today we also make some more complications by colouring eggs with egg paints after that, because it receives uneven marble and more colourful look.

You can put it in colour before taking off a stocking, or after, or even twice. Experiments are welcome. Of course, You can also simply boil eggs and then use only paints without colouring it in a pan.Β  You can also search for more natural colouring methods on the Internet. In the end, grease eggs with oil for shine.

And the result is:

2. Rub the coloured eggs gently with a napkin to get a pocked surface.

Boil the eggs. After colouring boiled eggs rub them slightly with a napkin until the paint is completely dry.

And the result is! My sister got the most beautiful. I got the worst πŸ˜€

3. Fresh or dry flowers and plants on egg in a stocking. It’s my favourite one and I usually try to make it extremely natural,Β  so I’m ordinarily colouring eggs by boiling them in the water with onion husk. Here are some flowers of my rich collection in my old dictionary. ;D

And the resuuuult is!

My colourful woolen buttons and brooches

Here I want to share with some of handmade woolen buttons and brooches. I started with decorating my very boring big buttons on the sweather by covering it with wool, and fascinated I made the whole colony of buttons. This time the most popular theme was animals made in 3D. Of course, such buttons are moreΒ appropriate for children, but I would use one as a brooch. If I make more buttons after a while I will place them by themes.

Some ideas for Christmas

Probably you have already finished decorating your christmas-crafthome for Christmas. I decided to share my Christmas ideas, some of them were developed from what i had seen on the Internet before, in a bit changed way.

Pinecone garland

Maybe you have seen a garland made of pinecones (I saw it on Pinterest). I love pinecones: forests and parks are wealthy with pinecones, I often pick up some and put into my pocket. I made the garland and painted some pinecones with gold spray paint. I decorated my piano with the garland. I liked it. Later I added Christmas lights and small gold beads garland. Now my piano looks like in a Christmas fairytale.
