4 Fun Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
DIY Fortune Eggs
Using an egg-blowing kit, drain your eggs according to the manufacturer's directions, then rinse and let dry. Dye the eggs in your desired shades; the blown-out eggs will float on top of the dyes, so spoon dye over the eggs for even tones. Set them aside until completely dried. Gently open the hole you made when blowing out the egg until it's just large enough to fit a rolled-up message and sprinkles. Glue a small circle of tissue paper in a coordinating color over the hole.
Dilute a little alcohol ink with rubbing alcohol in a mini spray bottle and shake to mix. Prop up an egg (you can use an egg crate or make a small ring with a paper towel) and spray with the diluted ink, allowing it to pool or drip as it dries. Repeat for multiple layers of the same shade, or layer different inks for a multicolored effect.
Using white craft glue, attach pieces of rickrack to eggs in different designs.
Puttin' on the Glitz
Brush a layer of white craft glue onto one end of an egg, then dip into iridescent glitter.
