If you're looking for a new way to decorate your Easter Eggs this year, here are 2 more fun and easy ways to create unique looking Easter Eggs. Don't forget to display your gorgeous eggs on a special tiered egg display tree or in a beautiful Easter basket!
Rubber Band Tye Dyed Eggs
Wrap several rubber bands around a hard-boiled egg (careful to not crack the egg!) Dip the egg into a bowl containing the mixture of food color, vinegar and water. Let it sit for a while for the color to intensify. Remove the egg, pat it dry and take off the rubber bands. The areas covered by rubber bands will still have the original egg shell color and have a tye-dye effect.
You can dye the eggs a solid color before applying the rubber bands, or leave the eggs their natural color.
Tape or Sticker Designs
Use simple shape paper punches to punch out shapes from masking tape (or cut out your own design), then stick tape to egg. Dye the eggs with the tape on, let them dry, then remove the tape to reveal great designs!
Other ways to get fun designs is to use white crayon or clear nail polish. Color designs, names or anything else, then dye the egg. Wherever you applied the crayon or polish the dye won't stick.
