Decorating eggs is just plain fun at any age and the applications are endless. It's so easy hard boil a big pot of eggs and then go to town with what every you have on hand. Over the years I've tried many things, here are a few of my favorites!
Watercolors are a great alternative to egg dye! Pre mix watercolor in bowls, wet the egg with water and brush on color!
Its fun watching the paint swirl and mix into it's own design.
You can dye your eggs with food coloring too. Splatter your eggs with a toothbrush of brown color for a Robins egg effect.
Crepe paper petals are easier to make than you think.
Cut crepe paper streamer and adhere to the egg with double stick tape.
Transforms an egg to a daisy.
I loved using scrap booking papers to turn dyed eggs into whimsical flowers.
Cut tiny flowers from silk branches to make delicate garden eggs.
These brown paper creations are made with a paper punch and small scissors to cut little designs.
Natural eggs can be stunning added to your table centerpiece.
Simplicity is sublime with a one color palette of acrylic paint.
The option are endless, so why not make eggs part of your holiday celebration. If your thinking beyond the egg for some Holiday and Spring Ideas, you can find more of my DIY projects at the The Daily Basic magazine.
