The Prettiest Easter Eggs. - The Magic Onions

The Prettiest Easter Eggs.

We have been making beautiful heirloom eggs to decorate hour home for Easter. This craft makes such pretty eggs… we used transfers to color our eggs beautifully.
All we needed was white blown egg shells (tutorial on how to safely do this is here) and transfers that we found at a craft store… both the rub-on’s and the transfers that need to be dampened with a wet cloth will work.

Kitty and Teddy chose which images they wanted for their eggs and cut neatly around the edges.

We used rub-on’s and they worked wonderfully, sticking nicely to the naturally porous egg shells.

It was a gift to watch the delight on my children’s faces as their eggs got prettier and prettier.

Happy Easter crafting!

Blessings and magic,

  8. Rub-on’s are those transferables you scrapbook with… you know, those things that come on clear plastic pager and you set them on the thing you want to transfer the image to and then rub over them and the image comes off the clear plastic and onto your object.
    We found ours at Michaels and I’ve seen really cute ones at Target too.
    Enjoy, Darlings :-)
