Lilly Easter Eggs

This Easter, turn your decorations pink and green with Lilly paper goods. The paper products from Lilly Pulitzer are so pretty that I often find myself using them for other things. The wrapping paper makes a great book cover. The uses are endless.

I always incorporate Lilly into holidays, too. A pink tree at Christmas, pink is an obvious choice for Valentine's Day, and so on. During spring at our house, we always try to make a variety of Easter eggs. This week, I'm going to share a few of the different ideas that I like for Easter eggs.


These eggs are easy to make and can be used for many years. You'll need paper napkins, Mod Podge, and plastic eggs. I used about 3 leftover Lilly Pulitzer cocktail napkins that I had to make a dozen eggs. Since there were not enough napkins for a crowd, I figured that this was a good way to Re-Lilly! Cut or tear the napkins in to small pieces. Since the napkins were a patch print, I cut some of the parts of the patch in the squares or shapes they were in the print.

Dab a little Mod Podge on the plastic egg and then lightly press the napkin in place. Cover the napkin with more Mod Podge and continue until the egg is completely covered. The eggs dry easily in a holder from the egg dye kits from the supermarket.

Coat the egg one or two more times with Mod Podge to finish. Alternatively, you can spray them with clear acrylic, but I like the results better with Mod Podge.

This project is easy enough for little or big hands and is a perfect filler activity while dyeing other eggs.



P.S. Thank you to everyone who has written to me about my mother. It truly means so much to me. She is being transferred to a rehabilitation center today where she will be for a few months. She is in good spirits and is determined to do the physical therapy necessary to recover from this accident.
