Okay, here’s the deal. I have been a parent for 18 (EIGHTEEEEEEN) Easters and, call me crazy, but this year I seriously need something more exciting to do with two dozen eggs than dunk them in cups of Paas water. Don’t you?
Google to the rescue.
With one quick search, I found tons of tutorials designed to fancify those shells to my heart’s desire. Here are my picks for the top four ways to decorate Easter eggs.
Easter Eggs How Tos
1. Sparkly Dot Easter Eggs by Kristen at Domestifluff
The only supplies you’ll need are eggs, adhesive dots, and microfine glitter. Eggs stay white. Easy as pie. Plus the kiddos LOVE to craft with glitter. WIN.
2. Doodle Easter Eggs by Alisa Burke
Remember all that doodling you used to do during Mrs. Summerlin’s Geometry class? You’ve got skillz, baby. Grab a Sharpie and let your imagination run wild on these puppies. Don’t forget to give the kids one to doodle on too.
3. Misfit Stripes Easter Eggs by Jen at Indie Fixx
Finally! One for you hard-core Easter egg dyeing fans. Get out your egg coloring kit, or just some plain food coloring, and a roll of electrical tape. It’s ON.
4. Fingerprint Ladybug Easter Eggs by Martha Stewart at Her Media Empire
The link above takes you to a web page for Martha Stewart’s new iPhone app, Egg Dyeing 101. The app is utterly adorbs, with hundreds of ideas and extras like templates, and it’s worth every penny of the 99 it will cost you. So, right, technically this one isn’t a tutorial. (HINT: I’m betting with some blue dye, a Sharpie, and a red ink pad, you could figure out what to do without the app. You’re smart like that.)
Hey — don’t forget — if you need help figuring out how to hard boil an egg, I have
an app a tutorial for that. Also, if you’re shopping for your new Sunday best, check out this look I put together for your Easter fashion inspiration.
