Easter eggs

I loved the concave rainbow large eggs! They are awesome in my Wonderland mantel-scape. It's hard to decorate for Easter and St. Patrick's Day!

I'm not a fan of dying Easter eggs. It's messy and other than having Deviled Eggs at Easter brunch I don't see the point. I remember when I was a kiddo and my parents hid the "real eggs" and they were in a complete PANIC when we couldn't find them all. No one wants their home to smell like rotten eggs. So until we have kiddos of our own, Boyfriend and I decided against dying eggs. 

But that doesn't mean I can't have fabulous Easter decor! Inspired by Torie Jayne: Sequin Eggs and  sweetcsdesigns.com I bought some Styrofoam eggs, A TON of sequins and THOUSANDS of pins in different sizes. They are a great project for watching tv and being mindless, which after work and school I really need. I found I prefer overlapping my sequins so I don't leave white space and that by changing if the sequins are convex of concave it gave the egg a different look. Also I recommend keeping a close eye on the pins and the sequins.

My mom wanted pastel colors for her decor and I went a little wild with rainbows and metallics.

How did you mix St. Patrick's and Easter decor?
