Events: Inside Out Themed Easter Eggs

Happy Easter everyone!

A few weeks back, I had the idea of doing an Inside Out theme when my wife and I decorated our hard boiled Easter eggs this year. I thought the colors of the emotion characters-Sadness, Joy, Anger, Disgust and Fear-would work absolutely fantastic as Easter eggs!

I guess I wasn't the only one who thought that would be a great idea though...a couple of days ago the official Inside Out Twitter account tweeted some "egg-stravagant decorating tips" featuring the Inside Out emotions as Easter eggs; "egg-xactly" what I was picturing. It worked out though since we ended up using their great designs as the inspiration! Using glitter was a perfect idea because of how the characters actually kind of sparkle in the film.

I couldn't have done this without my talented and crafty wife Brita, so I have to give her huge props. I definitely can't take the credit! She did most of the intricate glue and glitter work with toothpicks and, needless to say, I was very impressed.

Here's some pics when we first started (the night before Easter):

Today we finished them up and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. I'll feel bad peeling and eating them tomorrow after all this hard work!

 Which one is your favorite? For me, I'd have to say Anger- perfection.
