these happy Easter eggs were inspired by vintage Pyrex bowls
AND by two previous projects i've created inspired by them.

'inspiration comes from everywhere' is a phrase many creatives use.
it's certainly true for me, as well as 'inspiration comes from nature'.
another source of inspiration for me is my own previous projects.
i love using similar concepts and elements from my stash
to create new 'home decor that's not from a store' in different seasons!


i hope you enjoy my last Easter decor project this year!
be a good egg and continue reading for a really easy tutorial...

the Pyrex pattern has two simple elements - flowers and butterflies - 
that are very easy to replicate. 

i used artist's acrylic paints and an alcohol pen:

the eggs themselves are ceramic, and previously painted with a faux kintsugi treatment,
so i repainted three of them white (in an eggshell finish, naturally!)

one additional egg was painted in an 'egg yolk yellow' hue
and a thick stripe of that color was painted onto a white egg.

adding the floral and butterfly motifs was made simple using a yellow alcohol ink pen
and a very thin paint brush with a watery consistency white paint:

my goal was to use the elements in a different way on each egg...

the yellow band was accented with a line of white daisy flowers,
and the solid yellow egg displays a single white butterfly.

one white egg has dancing yellow butterflies all over it,
while the other has a row of two sizes of yellow daisies circling the egg.

with the addition of some yellow paper shred and other color-coordinated eggs,
the Pyrex bowls become Easter 'baskets' and display the eggs perfectly.

do you collect vintage kitchen ware, dishes, or china that has a pattern you love?
there's always a way to incorporate the things you love into your home decor
every season of the year!


Happy Easter, my friends...
tho it really isn't about the eggs.
