Spring has sprung and that means Easter egg hunts and family holiday dinners. Surely, brightly colored Easter baskets filled with tasty treasures and decorated hard-boiled eggs are signs of the season.
Decorating eggs for the holiday is a family tradition for many. While retailers offer variety, a bit of homespun creativity can add pure magic to Easter morning.
In preparation for the holiday, Inside the Magic took a quick hop down the bunny trail (aka the world wide web). Our goal: find a few Disney inspired decorating inspirations. Listed below, 5 ideas to make Easter morning eggstra special.
From “Monsters Inc.” manifestations to Incredible egg enhancements, Pixar inspired fun is easy. The clever crafters at a Pumpkin & a Princess list step by step instructions. On their site, find half dozen delights inspired by Disney/Pixar properties. These eggs have real character!
Force Fueled Fun
Characters from a galaxy far, far away can be conjured using acrylic paint and faux eggs (wooden or plastic) that can be found at any craft store. Creating Star Wars characters is as easy as following the directions courtesy of “Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls.” Certainly, Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Yoda, R2, 3PO, Wicket, Darth & Stormtrooper eggs have a place in the Easter basket?
Egg-Shellsior! Avengers: Age of Ultron Designs
Next, Food*fun*family fashioned a dozen different superhero styled Easter eggs when “Avengers: Age of Ultron” descended on theaters in 2015. Again, these happy heroic images were painted on faux eggs. These super ideas used a variety of different materials.
Fancy Frozen Fun
Additionally, another six spectacularly shimmering styles serve a chill for Easter morning. Using faux craft eggs, winter wizardry from a Pumpkin & a Princess produce a cool, Frozen-inspired collection of fancy oval-shaped surprises.
Ethereal Eggs from the Haunted Mansion
Finally, for those who prefer their decorating to be done for them, Disney has a trio of ghoulish delights! Guests who manage to find their way to Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival (Walt Disney World, FL) could find a frightfully fun holiday. Hitchhiking Ghosts, in the shape of Easter eggs, happily haunt Disney Traders and Mouse Gear (in limited supply).
Bonus: Mouse Made Basket Case
Of course, Disney inspired Easter eggs need a home. Not to worry, “this fairy tale life” details directions on DIY Mickey and Minnie Easter Baskets. Transform an ordinary basket into iconic Mousterpieces using a bit of paint, craft foam, and felt (full supply list and directions found on their website).
With a host of happy characters and attractions, Disney inspired Easter eggs are a great way to bring movie magic and park pixie dust into the holiday festivities. Using plastic or wooden eggs ensure that the creativity is around to re-use for years to come.
