"Love this Book!! This Book was so helpful to my husband and I when we were sleep deprived and needed a quick refresher on what to do. I also love the fact that it's a book that is quick to the point and gives you the most important information. It is so hard to sit down and read some of these mommy to be books that are 300 + pages and they talk in circles. This book was a awesome read and I recommend it to all my new mommies to be!"

Egg Decorating: The Eco-Friendly Method for Eggstravagent Masterpieces 

 

My mother taught me this natural-eco friendly way to decorate eggs years ago. And it is going from generation to generation.  Have fun!

 

 

You need:

  • Eggs (preferably white but brown works too)
  • Strips of fabric about 9x4 inch   ( from an old t-shirt or rag)
  • Little flowers (easily flattened flowers like daisie or cosmos work best)
  • Onion skin
  • Yarn
  • Coffee grind (at least 1 cup)
  • Water
  • Drop of olive oil

 

How to do it:

 

The eggs needn’t be hard-boiled but be careful not to push too hard as they can break easily.

Get your materials ready on a table and take the egg.

Drape the flowers on the egg with the shape covering the egg.

Place the onion skin on top of that, covering all of the egg.

Snuggly wrap the flowered and onioned egg in the fabric strip.

Wind the yarn around the fabric tightly and evenly so that everything is pushed on the egg firmly.

Place the egg in a pan with the coffee grind and add water until the eggs are covered.

Cook for about 10 minutes.

 

Let it cool for at least a few hours until it is cold.

Unwrap the yarn and fabric and remove the onion peel and flowers carefully.

You can make the egg shiny by rubbing a little olive oil on it with a kitchen towel.

There you are, beautiful decorated eggs. Enjoy.
