Easter is a little less than 2 weeks away and it’s time to break out the Easter Eggs! This year I decided to do something a little different with our eggs, giving it a more upscale feel. Using faux flowers from The Dollar Store and spring themed napkins, I’m going to show you how to easily make these DIY gorgeous floral Easter eggs.
You will need:
- Eggs (You can use real eggs or wooden craft eggs I got from Amazon.)
- Faux flowers (I got a couple stems from The Dollar Store)
- Paper napkins (choose some fun spring ones)
- Glue or Modge Podge
- Hot glue gun
- Small paint brush
Step 1: I chose to keep my eggs the natural white but if you wanted them to be colored you could paint them or dye them.
Step 2: Open your napkin all the way so it is a single layer. Using your scissors, cut out the pieces that you want to use to put on your egg, trimming as close to the object as possible.
Step 3: Take your flowers and clip the flowers off the stem, clipping as close as you can to the base of the flower.
Step 4: Using some glue and your paint brush, dab some glue on the egg where you want your napkin pieces to go and press the napkin pieces firmly onto the egg. There may be some slight creasing, so try to smooth it out as you go. If any of the edges start to come up, you can also dab some clear glue or modge podge over the top.
Step 5: I found that a hot glue gun worked best for the flowers. Put some hot glue on the backside of your flower and press onto your egg.
That’s it!!! I love how intricate and gorgeous these look! And if you use the wooden eggs, you can enjoy them for many more years to come.

Hot cocoa bombs are all the rage right now! So naturally for Valentine’s Day this year, Maxwell wanted to share his love of hot cocoa bombs with all of his friends. I created this cute “You’re the Bomb Valentine” free printable you can use for the tags. (See below to download the free printable)
While you can certainly make hot cocoa bombs yourself, this homegirl doesn’t have the time or patience for that. I get mine from my girl Brittany who is local. You can check out her Instagram page to see all of her other confections.
I wrapped each one in cellophane, tied it with some ribbon and added the tag. Super easy and festive!

2020 has certainly been a rough year. With so many families struggling, I wanted to use our community to do some good and bless one or two families in need.
Below, read on to learn more about the family you will be helping and their Amazon Wish List. Once you’ve purchased something off the list, it will be removed.
Meet The Chittle Family
Janice Chittle is a single mom to three amazing sons, William, Henry and Teddy. William suffers from Mitochondrial Disease and has dealt with an array of medical issues his whole life. At 11 years old, William has had a total of 25 surgeries. Henry is almost 9, and the “comic relief of the family. Watching his two bothers battle illnesses, he strives to help others as much as possible and has developed a deep love of fundraising to do so. Teddy is the baby of the family and at 2 years old, shares the same gene mutation for the Mitochondrial Disease that Will has.
Will and Teddy require constant and ever changing medical care that includes monthly hospital visits to see specialists at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin which is about 5 hours away from their home in Michigan. As a single mom of three, Janice struggles with finances and constantly trying to clone herself to be able to be in more than one place at a time. This year, has been especially difficult. Due to Covid, Janice lost both of her jobs and the medical bills continue to stack up.
Throughout it all, the family maintains positive and are very grateful for all of the wonderful people in their life.
I would love to be able to add a few more families to this list. If you know of a family going through hardship, feel free to email me at email@example.com
