After almost a week of cold temps and dreary rain, the sun popped out this morning, and I'm into full spring mode. I can't wait to start decorating for spring now that the weather is cooperating so I decided to start with the quintessential symbol of spring-the EASTER EGG!
So to gather some inspiration, I went through the links at The Scoop's Mega Spring Linky Party looking for posts about eggs. And I found some of the most beautiful and creative ways to decorate eggs. So I'm sharing these in case you've been hit with a little Spring Fever, too.
Just a note: If you'd like to pin these ideas on Pinterest, be sure to click on the link below the pictures to pin from the original source.
First up are these gorgeous eggs by Designs by Cleo. If you're like me and you don't want to mess with dying eggs, then here's a great alternative. Just wrap inexpensive foam eggs with some colored embroidery thread and embellish with flowers. So pretty!
Chiara from Gocce Argentate covered plastic eggs with rice paper and hand-painted these flowers onto her eggs. The tiny crocheted flowers were even created by her as well, and she has the pattern on her blog if you'd like to make some yourself.
These French decoupaged eggs are another great way of transforming those plastic eggs, too. Debbie from the blog Confessions of a Plate Addict used sheet music, dictionary pages, and a black and white illustration to create these eggs.
Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict also created these pretty Pottery Barn inspired eggs. So easy to do this with those speckled eggs that are readily available now.
And just look at these botanical decoupaged eggs that Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict created! You'll never guess what she used until you click over to see.
Heather from Setting for Four covered her eggs with the words from a French poem. C'est magnifique!
More French Script eggs were created by Sondra Lyn at Home using torn pieces of decorative napkins.
Vickie from Life in My Empty Nest wrapped her eggs with colored twine. Wonder where she found pretty pink twine!
Yvonne from Stone Gable used real eggshells to serve as pots for pansies on her spring table. Gorgeous, I tell ya!
After seeing all these inspiration pics, I'm ready to start my spring decorating this weekend. How about you?

Great motivator for me, as I have chickens the real egg shell will be the way I go. I'll share later what I did with these ideas. Thank you for gathering the eggs 🙂 and the other contributors.
