Well, this is my last post for Easter eggs, yes, I know…. I love decorating Easter eggs.
Today I am sharing how to dry flowers and apply them to Easter Eggs, they are so beautiful and easy to make, you just need a little patience.
Here is your supply list:
24 faux realistic looking Easter eggs ( you an click the blue link and purchase ) , I like to use white the best as it showcases the flowers.
An assortment of fresh flowers, I just pick them along my walk, shhh, don’t tell anybody! I also pick several from my yard. I used pansies, bougainvillea, iris, poppies, fern, and a few other small flowers.

There are several ways to dry flowers, however, I used the easiest and simplest way I believe, but I am an amateur flower presser, not a pro.
This is likely the most popular way to press flowers, as it is also the easiest. Choose the heaviest book you can find, such as a dictionary.
There are a few other ways to dry flowers, such as using an actual flower press, using the iron to dry and flatten the flowers.
You can even use a microwave to dry flowers.
You can purchase a microwave flower press, but you can easily make one yourself as well. Use two ceramic tiles and rubber bands to hold them together.
Now that you have dried flowers, it is time to apply them to your eggs.
This is a simple process.
In the end you can display them in a birds nest, in an egg crate or simply scatter them on a table and they will last for years to come.
