People are Going All Out with their Easter Eggs!

Easter is right around the corner, and I am seeing bunnies and baby chicks all over my pinterest. What caught my eye though, is all of the creative ways people have come up with for decorating their eggs! Growing up we would dye our eggs in the typical fashion, but we never got this fancy with it. One year we tried drawing white crayon over the shells before dyeing them to try and get a design to appear, but they came out terrible. It just looked blotchy. Whatever these people are doing though, they are doing it right! Here are a few that are my favorite so far:

People are getting creative with using different medias to get a pattern on the shells.  I would have never thought to use a paper napkin or a tie.

I love the marble look you can get by dying shaving cream, swirling it around, and dipping the egg in but you cant beat the colorful layers of the middle one.  This person used hot glue and multiple dips into the dye to give it the swirl look.  And the gold leaf at the end!

Kuddos to whoever took the time to carve out their eggs… I will never have the patience for that even though this one was my absolute favorite of the bunch.  I love how the brown eggs have a simple, delicate look with the white pen drawn on.

My mom would absolutly love the first one here.  Using leaves and little flowers and gluing them on with modge podge gives these a very rustic look.  Or just use the plants as a stencil to get the shape on the shell.

I thought that this last one was just GENIUS.  Using the broken shells from other eggs and gluing them onto another to give them a cracked appearance.  So creative!
