We have some egg-tastic Easter eggs coming your way. First up, photo eggs with flower crowns.

If we could wake up every day and wear a flower crown, we would. Ok, Jenna probably wouldn’t unless it was made of black and white anemone’s. But, seriously, how pretty would we feel if we were crowned with such beauty on a daily basis? We would feel like a beautiful princess.

One day, just to be spontaneous and special, we are going to go through our daily, wonderful mom routine {cooking, cleaning, tantrums, laundry, poopy diapers and playdates} with a DIY flower crown on our heads. Who says we can’t walk around in our yoga clothes and feel like a princess for the day?

Since wearing a floral crown everyday is not always feasible, we found an adorable plan b – DIY photo easter eggs with flower crowns. Now we can crown our heads with pretty flowers, and put it on display. This egg project is an easy and fun project to do with kids {or friends}, and it’s a lovely easter egg display. Plus it also makes for beautiful place cards on easter. Everyone just needs to look for their beautiful face at the brunch table. For the men, add a bow tie or newsboy hat!

Materials:

  • wood or paper mache eggs
  • Mod Podge
  • card stock
  • White tissue paper
  • Frog tape
  • Paintbrush
  • Photos
  • Scissors
  • Fake flowers
  • Floral wire
  • Hot glue gun and hot glue

Directions:

Find photos of your family and friends. Crop and edit them in Microsoft Word. No Photoshop necessary for this. Just crop them into an oval shape, and make sure they fit the size of your eggs.

Tape a piece of tissue paper onto the card stock and print. Then, cut out the photos.

Paint a small amount of Mod Podge {about the size of the photo} onto the egg. Gently press the photo down on the egg and smooth out as many wrinkles as you can. We don’t need more wrinkles than we already have, right?

After about 5 minutes, paint a small amount of Mod Podge over the photo and surrounding area. Do not swipe the paint brush too many times over the photo, or the ink will smear. Let the egg dry.

To craft the DIY floral crown, cut the small stems from your branch and put together with floral wire wrapped around each stem, and shape into a circle. Make sure the size/shape fits over the top of your egg.

Dab a tiny dot of glue to the back of the egg, and press the back of the crown down on the glue{so the flowers are in front}. This will keep the crown in place.

Display on egg holders, plates or in baskets. FYI – this is the only time you will see a pink flower crown on Jenna, so let’s take it all in.
