With Easter just a couple of days away, you might be in need of a last minute decorating idea.

If you have a cutting machine and some vinyl, these black and white Easter eggs are super easy.

No machine? No problem! You can easily adapt the idea by hand-cutting some simple shapes (think chick, egg and rabbit silhouettes) or even applying some shop-bought stickers.

Oh! And you’ll need some eggs. I used cheap plastic ones, but you could just as easily use the real thing… if you don’t mind a good blow.

Ooooh errrr!

These might be super simple but I think you’ll agree, they look really effective. The black and white lends a modern twist to Easter decorating and I have to say, the display looks brilliant in my newly decorated hallway (more updates on that coming soon).

I just love how these eggs look way more expensive than they actually are, especially when teamed with three equally cheap and cheerful ceramic numbers that I scored from Tiger.

In the bowl, you can’t even tell the ceramic ones from the plastic ones!

Très chic!

As a bonus, you can use the negatives from your cuts to create some Easter artwork.

I call it Ostara Oeuf.

Get it?!

*groan*

As if this weren’t already a blindingly simple craft to have a go at, you get two projects for the price of one.

Ain’t I good to you?

To even up the numbers and create a little interest, I added a 6th egg that I made using the Cricut’s draw and cut function, which I attached using craft foam dots. The white bow, as well as the black IKEA Ribba frame both came from my craft stash so aside from a bit of time, this project was FREE!

Bloody marvellous!

I do like to do my bit for reducing waste.

And then I look around my office….!
