Making Waxed Easter Eggs.

I love the lead up to Easter… there are so many sweet crafts that Easter inspires… nests, birds, bunnies, eggs… today, we decorated eggshells.
We painted the eggshells we blew out the other day. If you haven’t done it before, here is a tutorial on how to clean out an egg shell.
As we love working with melted wax, we decided to paint our eggs with melted crayon wax. Here is a tutorial on how to melt wax and get it ready for paining. This is a craft for an older child. K is 6 and handles working with hot wax very well.
We needed:
* broken crayons
* a few glass jars
* an old paintbrush you don’t mind messing up
*clean egg shells

I melted the wax (method described in the above tutorial link).
K then dipped her paintbrush into the liquid wax and painted dots onto her egg shell. First blue…
Then green and then red. She made a gorgeously speckled egg!
I wasn’t quite so disciplined and painted wax smudges onto my egg. Here are the finished works… they look so lovely and bright and are wonderful to hold. Isn’t there something about the way wax feels?
Happy Easter crafting!
Blessings and magic.
