easter surprise!

over the weekend i discovered an awesome easter tutorial over on just.lovely.things, which i simply had to share with you guys.  by the way, can you believe easter is in two weeks?!

this exciting project is brought to you by not martha {don't you love those gals?}.  
sure, these look like your typical unassuming easter eggs,...


...but when you crack them open, all sorts of goodies await!


this actually looks like a simple project if you have a wee bit of time to spare.  the basic steps are draining the egg yolks/whites {which you can then use for all your easter baking, right?}, dying the shells, filling
them with candy surprises, then glueing the open part to a cute mini cupcake wrapper.
oh and don't forget your "crack me" signs!


click on the link for step-by-step instructions,
and have a blast planning your easter extravaganza!

  3. Wow these look awesome. In Russian tradition we have egg cracking competions and these would be great to have instead of boiled eggs.

  5. I think we're going to have a whole egg dying extravaganza over at my place before Easter. I may have to include these on the list. They're certainly a step up from ordinary eggs.
