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.
What I used:
- White eggs. I used plastic eggs from a “paint-your-own” set – £1.25 for 5 from The Range
- Black vinyl
- Cricut Explore Air (other cutting machines available!)
- Scroll with letter – Egg – #M32942 + letter in font of choice
- Leaves – Egg – #M32916
- Fancy fretwork – Egg – #M3C9BB
- Fleur de lis – Egg – #M3A58A
- Additional egg for artwork (optional) – Egg – #M44724
How to make Black and White Easter Eggs
- Cut vinyl shapes
- Peel off backing
- Stick to eggs
Not much of a tutorial, is it?
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!
As a bonus, you can use the negatives from your cuts to create some Easter artwork.
I call it Ostara Oeuf.
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!
I do like to do my bit for reducing waste.
And then I look around my office….!
