I am so excited to be sharing entries for the Forrest Fenn Egg Hunt Decorating Contest! They are all so beautiful, creative, and just absolutely wonderful. We judges are so done for because it is going to be extremely difficult to pick the two winners for the prize of each category.
Thanks to all who send in a Entry! It’s a true joy to see them.

Items used: Dried Texas wildflowers and sand I collected on a spring walk. (Her tail of greenery makes her the most unique :-))
1,2,3- 4,5,6- 7,8,9- 10,11,12 ladybugs on a ladybug picnic telling knock knock jokes (from the song if any one remembers it), dried grapes, pines, small sticks, redish moss placed on the outside of a card.

Sherwood love to win this contest.
Items used: Lamb’s Ear for the bunny ears, pine needles as whiskers, holly berry for nose, small rocks for eyes, stick and grass for rest.
Items used: Outside of egg- Kaden put 2 gold Easter eggs, a smiley face, 2 rabbit heads, 2 treasure chests, a bunch of dots, a cross, and then a cross with Jesus on it. On the inside of the egg he put these 3 little white flowers that hang like bells and have green on the end of each leaf, he put leaves from that same plant for their stalks and for the grass and for the cross. In the center of the cross is a leaf from a Texas Bluebonnet. He put a 3 leaf clover on it and added an extra leaf because he wants to be lucky and win. He put yellow petals from small yellow wildflowers to make a sun and the blue in the sky is from the Texas Bluebonnets being rubbed on the white paper. We are going to frame his picture and give it to his mom and dad for Easter next week. Kaden loves the Thrill of the Chase and loves looking for treasure and other things. He is tons of fun!

Items Used: Wildflowers: 2 little white bell flowers, 5 tiny white daisy flowers, 2 tiny yellow daisy flowers, re petals from a Indian Paintbrush flower, Texas Bluebonnet petals and leaves, purple petals from the plant that has a tiny white bell shaped flower.
Items used: Large Oak leaf surrounded by dried wildflower tips. Then one ACORN SPROUTING. After picture taken it was then planted.
If it grows a plaque will be made to place underneath saying:
Mighty oaks from little acorns slowly grow
Then finally fall and wisp to naught,
But those who plant a seed of words
Live on in groves of human thought.

Items used: Some green moss, a piece of fir tree, grass, grape hycithas for the blue clouds, the sun is a daffodil, some cottonwood frillys for the brown rock, dark green leafs are a vine that has purple flowers in my yard and I don’t remember the name, and also some pink hycithas for pretty colors. The little purple flowers from the vine on the grass has already dried up, but that’s ok, spring sure is in the air around here in the Denver metro area.
