I love this time of year - as a person of faith and as much as I can be not of religiosity, I don't love it purely for its holidays and rituals but because we can be still and recognise the reason we can hold such hope for restoration in the hearts of man. I think colour and decoration then is a way of expressing that hope - for filling our rooms and lives with joy - here are some little things of colour I made to give to my family and friends.
You will need:
*different dyes in cups of water
First: hard boil eggs, cool, then dye in a variety of shades.
Next: With remaining dye use a paint brush to colour up some watercolour paper
Next: When the paper is dry cut it into thin strips so all the colours show
Next: write an easter message (I have used my favourite words spoken by Jesus) on the strips of paper and wrap them around the egg horizontally or vertically - secure in place with some glue.
He is all those things, and more.
Have a blessed weekend
