Disco, Dot or Bedazzle: Recipes for Eggstrordinary Easter Eggs!
March 2011 (updated 8/3/22)
Mind you, I love the simple egg decorating kits you can pick up at your favorite grocery store, but sometimes it's a little fun to go above and beyond food coloring, stickers, and such.
We discovered these egg-decorating ideas from Allrecipes.com that are upping the game and taking us outside of the box. For these eggstrordinary eggs you can use wood, paper, or Styrofoam eggs from a craft store - or, if you're feeling next level, you can blow out the insides of a raw egg.
To blow out the insides of a raw egg, Allrecipes offers these tips:
- To make blown eggshells for decorating, poke small holes in the top and bottom of a raw egg with a needle.
- Poke a long needle or thin skewer inside to break the yolk.
- Hold the egg over a bowl and blow gently on the top hole until the raw egg drains into the bowl, or use an egg blower.
- Let the shells dry, and then decorate.
As for supplies,
- Glue gun and glue
- Glitter, glitter pens
- Small seashells
- Sequins and beads
- Felt and fabric scraps
- Silk flowers
- Coloring gels
