There’s still time to make your own plant-based dyes for truly gorgeous Easter eggs (it’s totally fun). We especially dig the moderne neon dip-dyed egg above, which you can do with neon food dye available at the supermarket; here’s how to.
And don’t forget, eggs are a blank palette; you can just write or paint right on them with markers.
Recently, we saw eggs being decorated with temporary tattoos.
You can buy temporary tattoos just about everywhere or make your own by printing designs and images on decal paper (inkjet or laser). We found an easy-sounding how-to here; the key is choosing a fabulous image.
We’re wondering about using a mehndi henna tattoo kit – the Indian designs used for hands or feet – to stencil onto our eggs.
