Pottery Barn Inpired Easter Eggs

When I saw these Pottery Barn Easter Eggs I knew I had to make them. Now, at $20, they are a great deal but I can never resist the challenge of re-creating something I love.

I am making a Spring Wreath and decided these eggs would be the perfect accent for it. Of course, I have to put my own spin on things! I used real eggs, blown out, and I dyed them using RIT Dye.

The idea to use RIT Dye came late one night when I was trying to fall asleep. Does that happen to anyone else? I found a post from the RIT Dye blog that included custom color recipes (how beautiful are they??!!) I had such a hard time deciding on a color. I finally went with Aquamarine because it would really pop against the colors of the wreath and the lettering would show well on it.

I poked a tiny hole in the top and a slightly larger hole in the bottom using a nail. Then I gently broke up the yolk using a skewer and blew it out.

While they were dyeing and then drying, I created the letters using my Silhouette Cameo. I did a test cut for one letter on paper to make sure I was happy with the size. Then I cut the letters out of black adhesive vinyl.

Finally, I applied the letters and attached the eggs to the twine loops using hot glue. (I decided to use the twine loops after I had taken the materials photo)

On Friday, I will show you how I displayed the eggs on the Spring Wreath.
