These DIY Easter Eggs Look Just Like Our Favorite Spring Veggie

March 20th, 2018

I love any holiday that comes complete with its own crafting traditions. It’s one of the reasons we’re obsessed with Valentine’s Day around here, and also why Easter is at the top of our favorite holiday list (yes, that’s a real thing that exists.) When our friends at McCormick challenged us to come up with a new way to celebrate the Easter egg, we knew there had to be something out there that hadn’t been done. Feeling inspired by the season’s vibrant and delicious produce, we recalled the giant, colorful easter egg radishes found at the market this time of year, and voila! had our lightbulb moment. Behold, our easter egg radishes made out of… easter eggs!

Easter Egg Radishes

Supplies

Instructions

  1. For each color, combine 20 drops McCormick Food Color, 1 cup boiling water, and 1 tsp vinegar. Stir until fully dissolved.
  2. Soak eggs in the food coloring mixture until desired color is achieved. Since the eggs will float, occasionally rotate the eggs in the dye to coat the shell evenly.
  3. Set on drying rack to dry.
  4. While the eggs are drying, freehandedly draw a long-stemmed leaf shape onto green crepe paper, and with the paper folded into an accordion, cut out the shape to create lots of green leaves.
  5. Cut the twisted paper cord into 6-inch long pieces and use the hot glue to attach 1 to 3 leaves to each cut cord, as pictured.
  6. When the eggs have dried, insert the leafy stem into the shell (there should already be a hole in place from hollowing out the egg.) Use hot glue to secure the step in place.
  7. Bundle the easter egg radishes into groups of three and tie off with a bow.
