I so love this Easter project that I did with Ethan (well, most of it was ME as empty egg shells are too fragile to be handled by him). The end result is just too satisfying and cute!
Let’s start 😀
I’m still smiling looking at those eggs 🙂 If you have any Easter projects you want to share with us, please submit them here and we’ll link it back to you. Thank you 🙂

Having a party? Help your guests identify their glasses with personalized drinking glasses. You need not go to the extreme of ordering engraved drinking glasses with names on it. Cut cost and use ribbons to tie a name tag around the glass instead 🙂

Don’t throw out your old bottles of nail polish! They can be used for all kinds of crafts. You can paint plastic plant pots. Just mix different colors all together and the outcome is awesome! Your imagination is the limit and you can basically do anything with it! Jazz up old earrings, ornaments, shoes; anything that can be “sponge” painted. Have fun 🙂
Come share your craft tips and tricks with us here 🙂

When mixing colors for painting, the fundamental rule is that there are three colors that cannot be made by mixing other colors together. These three colors are red, blue and yellow; known as the primary colors.
If you mix two primary colors together, you create what is called a secondary color.
Blue + Red = Purple
Red + Yellow = Orange
Yellow + Blue = Green
The colour wheel can be seen below and this can be used to help remember primary and secondary colours. The secondary colours are in between the primary colours – for example – between red and blue is purple. Quite simply, mixing the primary colours of red and blue paint together will produce the secondary colour purple.
An important rule of the color wheel is that colours opposite to each other on the color wheel usually work well together as a colour scheme. These are known as COMPLEMENTARY COLOUR.
Tip: It takes only a little of a dark color to change a light color, but it takes considerably more of a light color to change a dark one.
Get your colors out today and try mixing until you get the desired results 🙂
