Do you ever use egg cups?
I’ve literally never used them before, even though I think they’re pretty cool. So I went and bought a handful at World Market (at .99 each it was hard to resist) so I would have somewhere to put my eggs for Easter. Decorated or not. Now, I realize this technique has been done a hundred times at this point, BUT I’ve never seen it used on egg cups. So boo-yah.
Here’s one (very) simple way to make basic 99 cent egg cups look a little bit cooler…
Using a porcelain paint pen (I like these), write messages, draw geometric shapes, draw funny faces – basically go to town. Let the cups air dry (72 hours according to the instructions on the pens – mine were dry to the touch within an hour or two though) and your eggs are ready to look a whole lot cooler sitting in those cups.
Also, if you want to make ’em a little more Easter-y, you can add bunny doodles or ‘Happy Easter’ notes. I just went with more everyday designs so I can use them year round. Honestly though, they’re so inexpensive, you could make different sets of these for every holiday.
