Inspired by BLANK: Painted Wooden Eggs

Easter inspiration from BLANK

A Painted family of nesting eggs, by BLANK

I recently fell in love with a store called BLANK, created by a girl named Danie, and filled with blank supplies to inspire you to make stuff.

Sadly, the store is in Australia and at this time does not ship to the States, but that won’t stop me from being inspired by her sweet ideas and encouraging you to visit the shop and get inspired too.

BLANK carries gorgeous gift boxes in fun bright colors, great gift tags, stickers, and other fun supplies.

Danie recently shared the painted wooden eggs shown above. Great colors, right? And they nest too!

This rainy-day DIY makes such a fun personalized gift and the sky’s the limit with how creative you want to get. Not the roses type? Try stripes, polka dots, tree branches, or do as the Portlandians do, and put a bird on it.
