Happy Easter, everyone! I can't believe how fast the year has gone by already. I wanted to take some time this year to really appreciate the holidays and not feel like I'm rushing through them. So I decided to do something that I haven't done in a really long time . . . dye Easter eggs.
I really wanted to make them Disney eggs, but not everyone wants one like that. Herein lay my problem: How to make them Disney without being too Disney? I decided to take some inspiration from some of my favorite movies and Disneyland.
All I really used for these eggs were dye kits from Target and some sharpies. It was a fun and easy craft, that's fun for slightly more experienced DIY-ers (that is, if you want Stitch to look like Stitch and not an amorphous blue blob!).
Lilo and Stitch Easter Eggs
I love Lilo and Stitch, so of course I had to do some inspired by my favorite blue alien. I felt like Ohana was the perfect theme because it means family and the thing I love most about Easter is spending time with my family.
Alice in Wonderland Easter Eggs
I love Alice in Wonderland in the springtime and thought it would be so cute to do some eggs inspired by it! I went with the Cheshire Cat for my inspiration and I love how it came out. Im simply mad about it!
Disneyland-Inspired Easter Eggs
These are inspired by Disneyland. Galaxy themes have grown increasingly popular in recent years, and I wanted to play on that. I put dream on the purple egg because Disney is all about dreams and I felt it was fitting. I used a silver sharpie to write on the egg and add in some specks to look like stars.
- After you dye the eggs and they have dried write on them with the sharpies. I waited until the next day to write on them and it was very difficult.
- If you put them in the fridge over night after they have been dies and you take them out the next day, when they precipitate the dye will come off.
- Have fun and be creative! there is no wrong way to decorate an Easter egg.
