egg decorating ideas

eggsWe are really excited that our nieces are coming from out-of-state today! (They are 2 and 3 years-old, and are Nolan’s best friends.) I bought lots of eggs to decorate with them this weekend.

I’ve only done typical egg-decorating—using the dyes that come in the “Paas” box, and taking a white crayon to write my name or make a design. I’ve been spying these new ideas on Pinterest recently, and I can’t wait to try one or two of them!

I am in love with these pretty, glittery eggs. And I like that this tutorial explains how to blow the raw whites & yolk out of the egg so that you only have a shell (and therefore can keep the eggs for more than one year).
Aren’t these adorable? They’re colored with pastel Sharpies (with the detail in Sharpie pens)!! How easy!

Gorgeous dyed eggs, wrapped in washi tape and lacy ribbon, to be used as placeholders on the table :)

I want to run to the store right now to pick up these McCormick neon colors (box of 4). I wonder if they really turn out this bright & vivid!

The link will take you to the “recipe” for this marbleized egg—which is 1/4 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar, 1/8 teaspoon oil, and 4-8 drops of food coloring. (I really want to try this one, but I might have to do it at a separate table from the kids because of the boiling water part.)

Have you tried any of these before? Do they work? Do tell!
