Egg-cellent Eggs, Part 2

As promised, here is part 2 of my Easter eggs post. All of the ideas in this post can be used with actual eggs that you eat, but you could probably use a few of these ideas with craft eggs as well.

I've found several ideas, but I chose to highlight the one's which I liked the best. Most of these are fairly simple ideas and as far as I can tell, these ideas are very budget friendly. All of the projects are from BHG and DLTK's Growing Together, and the links to directions and more information is underneath each pic, along with my brief commentary/description.

Take a look and enjoy!

I love this idea. These are made by placing rubberbands or stickers on the egg before dying it. Very cute and colorful!


Colorful Eggs

The colorful designs on these eggs are made with toothpicks & pencil erasers. A great idea, and it's simple.



Dot/Circle Eggs
These eggs are made by glueing colored dots on the egg shell, or you could use stickers.




Pysansky Eggs
Wax is placed on the eggs before dying to make the designs on these eggs. Somehow I think if I did this project it wouldn't look as good as the one's picture here. If anyone takes a closer look at this and decides to try it, let me know how it works out.

These eggs are frosted and then candy dots are placed on them.

You've probably seen eggs that looks simlimar to this. In this case, a toothbrush is used to create the splatters.
This idea is very cool. You use pressed flowers and hot wax to create the floral patterns seen here.



If you decide to try out any of these techniques, I'd love to hear from you and find out how it went!
