The Eggscellent World of Easter Egg Dioramas

sect_easter_sugar-eggs_ea09c

While I was looking for stuff pertaining to Easter craft projects, I came across some Easter egg dioramas. For many years, the idea of making little Easter scenes has been some sort of tradition since the Victorian Era. So much so that there are now egg dioramas that now pertain to Christmas and other occasions. And I’m not kidding on this one. Nevertheless, most of these egg dioramas don’t use real eggs. Because obviously, opening real eggs make a mess and eggshells break very easily. In other words, they’re terrible for craft projects. Also, many of the bigger eggs are illegal like those of ostrich. So most opt for other materials like sugar, paper mache, etc. That way, people are able to work with something that’s dry both inside and out, doesn’t make a mess, or breaks easily. Also, with such materials, the egg can be any size you want. And as you see, many of these egg dioramas come in a variety of sizes and openings. However, unlike the pumpkin dioramas I showed you back in October for Halloween, these eggs usually contain a rather small space for decorating. Yet, as with a lot of craft projects and dioramas, there are plenty that can get rather elaborate. Don’t ask me how that is. In this post, I’ll introduce you to the world of these kinds of projects by showing ones I’ve found in places like Pinterest or Google Images. So without further delay, I bring you to the eggscellent world of these dioramas for Easter.

  1. A hollow egg can always serve as an abode for a fairy princess.
Not sure how they got those kind of windows in this one. But it really lets the light in for you to see.

2. What better place to build a nest than near a birdhouse?

This is a cute diorama. Love the little birds and flowers. Not sure whether the birds are supposed to be babies though.

3. Sometimes an egg can be more than what it seems when you look inside.

Yes, this egg might seem pretty outside. But inside, it's a world full of flowers with 2 bunnies facing each other.

4. So that’s what Tinkerbell’s home is supposed to look like.

For the record I'm not a fan of Peter Pan and think it's overrated as a Disney movie. Still, this diorama is very well done.

5. In this egg, you will find a fairy on a  beautiful unicorn.

So it doesn't have much to do with Easter. But neither does Tinkerbell. But I think this one is cool. So it goes on the post.

Some of these decorations come from vintage Easter cards. A couple have fake flowers in them.

10. A white egg like this always presents Easter greetings.

13. An Easter egg diorama like this could always use a couple of chicks.

And by that, I mean fluffy baby birds you want to hold in your hand. Because after all, they're a common motive for Easter.

15. Sometimes the subjects of an Easter egg diorama depend on the egg’s size and color.

Most of these consist of bunnies. But only one of them has a pig. What that has to do with Easter, I have no idea.

I'm sure the rabbits here were cut out from some kit. And it looks crowded. But it's adorable.

18. A lamb in grass always seems like a welcome sight.

On Easter, the lamb has a sacred tie to Passover as a sacrifice. And since Jesus died on the cross to redeem our sins, one of his nicknames is, "Lamb of God." Also, lambs are adorable.

20. Seems like these two are out and about on a lovely spring day.

And if they live in the American South, their furniture probably has slipcovers. Because lovely furnishings need protection from people's sweat because they wear heavy outfits unsuitable for warm weather.

21. Why use Easter grass when dried flowers and moss would do just fine?

32. While growing up, who can remember hearing the story of the princess and the pea?

Of course, they could've saved a lot of trouble to determine whether she was a princess and just do a bit of a background check. Or consult a genealogist. Also how could feeling a pea make you unable to sleep? Doesn't make sense.
