8 Gorgeous New Ways to Make Easter Eggs

BlogHer Original Post

One of my earliest Easter memories is watching sharp pins being delicately pushed in the ends of an egg and then being shown how to carefully blow out the whites and yolk. We handled the fragile empty eggs with care as we dyed them. I recall we used wax and carefully, though not exactly skillfully, layered on the colours and designs. Well, the adults and older children mostly used the wax but I was able to help with the dipping.

I haven't decorated Easter eggs since elementary school. I'd like to this year. After college I was friends with a woman who made stunning pysanky and I marvelled at her skill. While I'd love be able to make pysanky, I think I'll start off with something a little less advanced this year. I was happy to discover there are lots of fun and pretty egg decorating techniques that fit my skill level.

I like decorations that can do double-duty as Easter and spring decorations. These moss covered Easter eggs scream spring to me.
