Time To Create Your Easter Eggs
There may be hundreds of different ways to decorate Easter eggs. You don’t have to spend a small fortune to buy supplies; you can use items you probably already have in your kitchen.
Eggs and dyes are the two elements of Easter crafts. Decorating eggs isn’t hard; here are some simple tips. If you want to save eggs from year to year or turn them into ornaments to hang from branches, blow them out instead of hard-boiling the eggs before dyeing them.
Tip: Try dyeing different types of eggs in order to vary the sizes — use quail for smaller and goose or ostrich for larger. Also consider dyeing brown eggs to alter the range of colors you can produce. These are all fun ways to make your Easter Basket look the best its ever been.
Use hard boiled or blown out eggs
(Options for eggs are: Brown or White large eggs from your local store. Quail and Goose eggs are a fun accent to use for your creative side!)
In a coffee cup, mix together a 1/2 cup of water at room temperature, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and several drops of food coloring. I used about 20 drops of each color, but you can adjust this however you like. Prepare several different colors in this manner. Also use size of dish that is appropriate for your choice of eggs.
Carefully place one egg in each cup of food coloring. Watch the eggs carefully and remove them when they reach the desired shade. Use a spoon to remove the egg and place it in an egg holder or on a paper towel to dry.
Be creative and explore and most of all have fun!
