Welcome to the Beadflowers beaded Easter egg hunt for 2021.
As I announced in my last blog post, I feel like we (still) need a bit of cheering up at the moment. So, what better excuse than the long Easter weekend?
I would love you to join me for four days of fun as I declare…
My Beaded Easter egg hunt is open!
So, how does it work? Well, I am about to share four images of beaded Easter eggs.
Behind each image is a clue that will involve you ‘hunting’ around the Beadflowers website to find the answer.
I will be ‘unlocking’ the four Easter eggs to reveal your four clues, one per day over the Easter weekend. In addition to the four clues, I’m also giving you a little gift each day. So, you will find that when you open your Easter egg. But be warned, each gift has a limited life-span. So, you really do need to check in every day to receive all four gifts.
In order to open your Easter egg, just click on the image. It will only open once I have ‘unlocked’ it each day.
Now, I know we all live across the globe, so that involves a lot of different time zones. So, if you are living in a non-UK time zone, just take that into account. The Easter eggs and timing of the prizes will be largely based in UK time. (I’ve tried to make a few adjustments to accommodate you all, but it’s not perfect!)
Featured pattern: Easter basket. Click here to grab the tutorial.
Gathering your answers
Now, each time you solve a clue, I would like you to add it to your Easter basket.
So, for a bit of fun, I’ve created a special downloadable Easter egg pack which includes your basket. It also goes over this information again. So, you can download that at this link.
It’s not obligatory, though. You can simply grab a piece of paper and write down the answers each day. Keep the paper safe. On day 4, I will be inviting you to submit your answers in order to win prizes…
I know you all have different tastes, so I’m trying to cater to as many people as possible with my beaded Easter egg hunt prizes. In fact, in order to keep things truly flexible, you’re going to get to choose which prize you would like.
You will be able to choose from the following:
- £10 gift coupon to spend on the Beadflowers website
- £10 gift coupon to spend in my Etsy store
- 75% off a beading pattern of your choice
- A mystery prize…this might be better or might be worse than the other prizes, so you’re taking a risk with this one!
When you submit your answers, you’ll also be asked to choose your prize. You will win it if you’ve managed to answer all four clues correctly.
How do you enter the competition?
Simply start by downloading your Easter basket (use the link above).
Then, make sure you visit this page every day and open your daily Easter egg.
Follow the clues to find the answer for each day. Then, make a note of your answers in your Easter basket (or just on some paper if you prefer).
On day 4, your clue page will include a form to fill in to submit your answers and choose your prize.
You need to submit the form by midnight on 7th April 2021. I will then go through all the submissions and send out the prizes between 8th and 10th April. I’ll send them out via email.
On 10th April, I will also send an email to everyone to let you know the correct answers, (just in case you didn’t get a prize and are wondering where you went wrong).
As a side note: your email address will only be used to notify you about this competition. After the competition has finished, I will delete all your contact details, so you can rest assured that your data won’t be shared or used in any other way.
Hopefully that all makes sense. So, I will just wish you good luck!
Your Easter eggs are ready and waiting down below, and I have unlocked the first one since it is already Good Friday in some parts of the world.
Happy Easter to those who celebrate. And Happy Egg Hunting to those who are just here for a little fun. I hope you enjoy the daily gifts and have fun if you decide to enter the beaded Easter egg hunt competition.
Your Easter Eggs
You can click on the image to ‘open’ your egg. The project featured in the day 1 egg is my Easter egg beaded box, which you can find here at this link. It features a set of three nesting eggs, all made with Peyote stitch.
The egg featured on day 2 is my sugar Easter egg. Inspired by the real confectioneries, this beaded version features miniature eggs inside a decorative shell. Made with a mix of bead-weaving techniques. You can find the pattern at this link.
On day 3, we’re keeping with the egg theme. But taking inspiration from Faberge, this project doesn’t have to be for Easter. It’s a nice simple Peyote pattern using Superduos, seed beads and pearls. You can find the tutorial at this link.
And finally, to end, how about a personalised egg cup? The beaded egg removes to reveal storage space inside. Plenty of room for a few Easter treats! So, if that Peyote pattern is something you would like to try, you can find it at this link.
