Fun Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs!
Create Blown Eggs
Poke a small hole in each end of the egg. Take a skewer or long needle to break the yoke. Hold the egg over a bowl and blow hard through one hole until the egg has exited the shell. Rinse, let dry, decorate.
Waxed Easter Eggs
Directions: Draw a pattern or design with a crayon on hard boiled egg. Dye eggs in desired colors. Then scratch off wax or place in oven around 200 for a few minutes until the wax is melted. You can polish the eggs with cooking oil and soft cloth.
Use a Sponge to Paint Eggs?
Directions: Place hard eggs in egg cups. Partially fill paper cups with different colors of tempra paint. Take a sponge and dip into the tempra paint. Then lightly dab the sponge over the top half of the egg. Let dry, then turn the egg over and follow the dabbing procedure. Let the egg dry completely.
Tissue Paper Egg Decorating
Cut bright colored tissue paper into squares. Dip a square into water and mold around egg. Repeat until egg is covered. Let sit for several minutes. Remove tissue paper to reveal a beautiful egg. Thanks, Bobbi
Make Plaid Eggs
Wrap eggs with rubber bands or strips of narrow masking tape before placing them in the dye. Be sure the egg is completely dry before removing the bands.
Make up several colored dyes (strong). Dampen an old clean piece of cloth with water and wrap it around the egg. With an eye dropper, drop spots of different colors of dye on the cloth. Twist the cloth tightly around the egg so the colors blend together. Gently unwrap the egg and let it dry. Jill - Atlanta
Brush on Designs
Use hard boiled eggs. Dribble rubber cement over the egg and let it
dry thoroughly, drying will take a few minutes. Dip egg into color
and when completely dry, remove rubber cement for a cool swirled pattern.
