Easter Egg Splatter

Eggs do come from Chickens!

I wanted to use a chicken Easter Basket this year!
I dyed the eggs in Turmeric!  Wonderful dye, we do cook a lot with this seasoning, but be careful, it really stains, everything!
I decided to just splatter black paint on the eggs.  I love the speckled ones, but too many of them out there now, so I wanted to do something different!  Just dip your brush in paint and splatter on!  Practice first for the look you want!

The basket was found at a thrift store, loved the tile on the front with a chicken and of course, my favorite, a Rooster.  I just dry brushed some white paint on the brown basket. 

 I will be going to my Daughter's for Easter.  I hope all your Baskets are full this Easter!

wishing all a fantastic Easter!

I never thought of turmeric for yellow dye. Great idea and the basket looks really cute!

What a great natural way to dye your eggs, and the splattered paint is a fun alternative. Really cute!
