Place your egg dye in water to create a pastel hue. Leave the egg in the dye for 30-60 seconds to lightly dye the egg. Once the egg has dried, take a metallic felt tip marker and gently color the egg with your preferred design. Don't press too hard, or you might break the shell!
There are so many ways to create this look; it's fool proof! Use stickers, glitter pens, or markers to create fun and easy flower designs on your eggs. You can pre dye the eggs or keep a white base like we did. Simple and pretty!
Use a wax resistant crayon or vinyl sticker to write lettering on the hard boiled egg. Dip the egg in your preferred color, or color blend. If using a vinyl sticker, remove the sticker after the egg has dried to reveal the white of the monogram. Personal and crafty!
For those looking to create a classic and easy easter egg, simply pick your favorite dyes, and drop the eggs in! A rainbow assortment of eggs will not only be simple to create but will look homemade and stunning.
Mix your egg dye with water rather than vinegar to create a pastel color. Once it has dried, use your favorite colored string to wrap around the egg . Seal with a little bit of glue to hold the string in place. Voila!
Dip one end of your hard boiled egg into the dye for approximately 2 minutes. Air dry on an egg tray, then carefully take the egg and dip the non dyed end into your desired second color. Our favorite pairings: pink and purple, blue and green, green and yellow, and yellow and pink. Make a mistake? So did we! That's how we got the green line in between the blue and yellow!
Get a dye-resistant wax crayon and draw concentric stripes around the egg. Dip the egg in your preferred color of dye for about 2 minutes, creating a rich hue!

Who says your Easter outfit can't match your Easter eggs? We decided to put that theory to the test, and with our friends Homesessive and Kitchen Daily, we decorated Easter eggs inspired by some of our favorite spring apparel. Color block, monochrome, and metallic are just some of the looks we created.
