Monogrammed Tea-Stained Easter Eggs

~Make Mine a Monogram~

 

Today I’m sharing my monogrammed Easter eggs. You know I love anything with a monogram!

I also love trying something new. So…I blew out eggs. That’s right. I poked a hole in each end of an egg and blew. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I used a straight pin to create each hole, making one hole larger than the other, but Martha Stewart gives a good tutorial on how to blow out eggs, if you’d like a more advanced method.

After my eggs were empty and clean, I soaked them in tea. Karianne from Thistlewood Farm made these great tea-stained eggs. I loved hers so much, I decided to do my take on them.

I soaked the eggs in a bowl of tea for about 4 hours. They ended up with a light brown stain to them. A couple of them have a “stripe” design on them.

After the eggs were stained, I used black craft paint to hand-paint initials on each one.

Each member of the family has their own monogrammed Easter egg.

I also used the black craft paint to make the eggs speckled.

You could definitely use a small stencil for the initials. I wanted something fast and easy and hand-painting the letters on the eggs was the fastest technique. The letters are not perfect, but I like the look. The tea stain and the “worn” look of the letters almost make them look vintage.
