Did you see it? In this month’s issue of Food Network Magazine, I’m in good company as part of their Easter Eggs Across America feature. 50 craft and DIY bloggers were asked to decorate an Easter egg that represents his or her home state. I went through lots of ideas about how to best represent the Sunshine State – but in the end, palm trees won. Palm trees will always win, right?

Turn an egg into palm tree with this simple tutorial just in time for your Easter celebration.

You will need:

STEP ONE:

Paint egg with DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint – Milk Chocolate

STEP TWO

Use a detail paint brush and DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint – Dark Chocolate to add lines to the painted eggs

STEP THREE

Cut small leaf shapes from green cardstock. Gently bend the leaves to mimic the shape of a palm frond. Last, use a hot glue gun to attach the leaves , one by one until you have a full palm tree.

Turn an egg into palm tree with this simple tutorial just in time for your Easter celebration.

  1. YES! I just looked at that Food Network magazine last night and was looking through the eggs from different states. I was so excited when I saw you had the Florida egg! I showed my husband – he knows you because you are one of my favorites on HSN craft days. 🙂
    Congratulations on being in Food Network magazine! Such a cute project and great representation of Florida!

  2. It would be cute to make an egg out of paper so you could stuff with candy. Add the cute palm leaves. Use for a summer theme party.

  3. This palm tree egg looks so cute. It’d be great for a beach-y decoration, with some tropical bunnies, actually a funny picture to imagine, lol. Quite creative!
