20 in 20 giveaway (day 17)...

easter eggs
20 handmade projects in 20 days...day 17. The Easter egg hunt is on! I've always liked the look of Ukrainian eggs, but holy cow! I couldn't draw a straight line to save my life. I finally used a rubber band to get some semi-straight lines on these wooden eggs (oops...you can still see some of my pencil lines). Truth be told, we haven't ever really gotten into the whole Easter thing at our house, but I figured that some of you may and that you could use 4 more eggs to add to your stash. After painting oodles of eggs (I'm just sharing the 4 that turned out pretty okay), I think I may have a change of heart this year. Thanks to Em bel' ish for sponsoring today's project. Happy 20 in 20!

Again....your genius knows no end!

April said...

the only way these would be more awesome is if they were a cadbury egg in disguise.

Great eggs!
They remind me somewhat of a folkart we have here in Holland called Staphorster stipwerk.

Easter Egg hunts are the best part of Easter. I'm notoriously bad at finding both eggs and easter baskets.

Sheau said...

Black eggs! Pretty cool.

Ms. T said...

Yay eggs! These are so neat!

Words and Eggs said...

Oh my gosh, I feel your pain: I tried making Ukrainian eggs before... SO FREAKIN' FRUSTRATING! I mean, fun... but frustrating.

Anyway, these are super cute.

These are great! We do a similar project in my crafts class, but we use real eggs, blow them out, then paper mache and sand them smooth to prepare them for paint. When we finish we can then use the holes on each end for stringing a few beads on the top and bottom. It's a process, but the kids love the project! I'd love to use yours as an example of the intricate and careful paint application.

Astrid said...

You're the Queen of patterns... love these. Ukrainian meets Aboriginal, perhaps?

Sarah said...

Hooray for em bel' ish!

Sarah said...

Oh, I love it! Ukrainian eggs in a goth phase!

Aesthetic Outburst... said...

Thanks so much, everyone! Do you know that I've never even tried a cadbury egg?! I'll have to fix that. xo, Abbey

These are beautiful. I make pysanky myself, and seeing the detailed work you do in other projects, you could definitely make pysanky!

Jessica said...

These are great! The red and white design is my favorite.

Gretchen said...

Did you know your egg ideas are making the rounds on the internet? I was searching for ideas with my son and looked what showed up on Yahoo!
