Easter

Happy Easter!

Just finished making these Easter Bunnies!

The pattern was given to me by Sally at Polliwog's Cakewalk Sally's bunnies are BEAUTIFUL!  She found the coolest sweaters on the planet to felt for this project.  Don't miss seeing them!!

Easter Eggs Decorated with Recycled Kool-Aid Colored Egg Shells and Mod Podge and How to Make Cascarones!

I know!  A lot for one post!  But Easter is almost here so what is a girl to do?  I promise - this is a short post!

All you need to make a mosaic egg like this one is a blown out egg shell, Mod Podge, a brush, and the shells left from peeling your Easter Eggs!

It was hard enough to crack and peel my Kool-Aid colored Easter eggs, but tossing out all those colored bits was impossible!  I saved them in a jar while thinking about what I could do with them.

Easter Eggs Colored with Kool-Aid - Seeking Red Update!

After my first adventure dyeing eggs with kool-aid (which you can find here) I am still on a quest to find a Kool-Aid flavor that produces a pink or red egg!

I just HAD to see what happens in a Tropical Punch and a Cherry bath!

Tropical punch is on the left and cherry on the right!  There is no difference!  The color is closer to red - not red red but closer than I was before.

Color Easter Eggs with Kool-Aid!

Beautiful, beautiful beautiful!  I love how saturated the color is on these Kool-Aid dyed eggs!

Would I do it again? Absolutly!

Will it work for you? That is what this post is all about! Taking a very honest look at dyeing eggs using Kool-aid.

I've seen a couple tutorials lately for dying yarn using Kool-Aid.  Two different methods but apparently they work! OMG the yarns are gorgeous. Go visit and see how it is done!  Brilliant!  Ideas and colors.!
