Well, our Easter holidays haven't exactly been off to a great start with pretty much all of us feeling pretty rotten with a virus, E actually has tonsillitis. So all our holiday plans have been put on hold for a few days. This week's #CityCountryLife is actually a craft post rather than our usual out and about because we've been stuck indoors for the last 5 days.
Last Easter, I remembered seeing this genius easter egg decoration clip on YouTube by fellow Londoner Quick Brown Fox. Back then I did't get a chance to try it out but seeing as we've been stuck at home, it was the perfect opportunity to do give it a go. All you need is nail polish, some eggs, a cup of water and a tooth pick. I won't go in to detail with the process because the YouTube clip describes the process far better that I could.
But, how pretty are these naturally pastel blue eggs from Clarence Court?
Also the ramekin that we used initially was too shallow for the eggs so we switched to a cup half way through.
After a few botched attempts we finally got a technique
But even the eggs that didn't go quite as planned still ended up looking pretty cool!
In Greece we dye red eggs at easter to symbolise the blood of Christ, so decorating eggs has always been part of our easter traditions.
They make pretty fun decorations for the home and also kept E and Rufio entertained for the afternoon whilst stuck at home. What are your favourite easter crafts?
