Eggceptionally Easy and Eye-Catching Easter Eggs

March 22nd, 2016No Comments

Modern designs on jewel-toned and spring-colored hard-boiled eggs are easy to make, great for displaying and tasty to eat, making them a staple for Easter celebrations. Pick up an extra dozen eggs for hard-boiling, find the right egg dye color combinations and then give these fun ideas a try:

* Stick To It: Take rolls of craft tape (Japanese Washi Tape) from your local craft store and start wrapping. Mix and match different colors and patterns of tape to give eggs a modern edge.

* Perfect Polka: Use the eraser end of a pencil to paint perfect polka dots on your egg. Just dip the eraser into acrylic craft paint and dab onto the egg. Make different patterns and use different colors to create your whimsical designs!

* Glitter Eggs: Add sparkle to your eggs by covering them in your favorite colored glitter. Brush craft glue over the egg until the entire surface is covered. Sprinkle a handful of glitter on paper plates and start rolling!

* Cascarones: Give family and friends good luck by making a dozen ”confetti eggs,“ a Latin American tradition, and cracking it over their heads! Follow our step-by-step guide on how to empty the eggshells. Once they’re clean and dry, dye the egg shells and fill the insides with confetti. Place glue around the edges of the hole, cover it with colorful tissue paper and get cracking.
