Hello Loves! Easter is just around the corner and while I usually miss out on decorating for pretty much any Holiday other than Christmas, I finally wanted to celebrate Spring and Easter with some sweet DIY Easter Egg Candles!

Let’s get at it! Seriously, these are SO easy and fast to make! Took me maybe 30min for 5 eggs. If you’re invited to any Easter Party – these would be such a great hostess gift!! Just saying.

What you’ll need for this DIY (and you probably have everything at home):

  • Eggs
  • Tea Candles OR candle wax & wicks
  • An old pan
  • Egg cups OR toilet paper rolls cut into pieces

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Start out by opening the top of your eggs, remove the insides and clean out the shells with water.
  2. Take out the wicks from your tea candles.
  3. On low heat melt the candle wax in your old pan.
  4. Place your egg shells into the egg cups (or toilet paper rolls) and add one wick per candle. Carefully pour the melted wax into each egg. Set aside and let the wax cool.

TIP: Having a hard time cleaning the pan? Try using steal wool. Gets the job done quickly and pain free!

And here are some ideas what you can create with these fun little egg candles. Crank out the hot glue gun, some moss, some leaves, some twigs and some vintage tea cups and get rollin’!

Next to weddings I occasionally get to hang out with awesome young folks for their senior portraits! It’s something I treasure, to hear about big plans, make these girls feel stunning and create art at this special point of their lives.

This gorgeous young lady wanted her senior pictures taken at Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur, CA. The morning started out being foggy, which turned the usually sunny beach into a mystical atmosphere. Enjoy ♥

Loves, the dreamteam did it again and our beautiful editorial shoot got published on August Willows! It’s been super hard not to share the images until now – even though, you’ve probably already seen a sneak here and there.

Gavita Flora, Kelly and I aimed for something simple, yet gorgeous & inspirational. We wanted to incorporate the beautiful winter scenery of California, while bringing in fresh whites, pinks and pops of yellow. The amazing real life couple Sierra & Anthony were the perfect fit for this one! Young, in love and so much fun to work with! Enjoy ♥
