DIY: Easter Bunny Hard Boiled Eggs

bunny decorated hard boiled eggs for easter

I have always wondered why people empty the eggs before coloring them. They are so much more fragile and harder to work with. Is it because they last longer? I personally like to hard boil the eggs first, that way, they are easier to work with.

I broke the pink one. It made me sad.

2.

While the egg is drying on the spoon, cut the felt into shapes (ears, eyes, nose).

I didn't need the scrap cardboard (kleenex box) because my felt was strong on it's own. Otherwise you can use it as back support for the ears.

3.

Glue the felt parts on the eggs. Serve with breakfast, eat & enjoy!

I've been pretty busy lately. I kind of over booked myself on activities with my son. I gave

birth

to him 3 weeks after we moved into our first house. I felt a bit lonely and secluded, so I scheduled a whole bunch of activities for us. We had swimming classes, mommy craft classes, baby musical activities, stroller workouts & lots of mommy/baby dates... it was fun while it lasted, but before I go back to work in 2 months, I want to spend as much quality time with my son as I can. alone. Just him, and me. It's hard to believe he's almost 1 already. I'm going to miss him being a little mister.
