Easter Egg Love.

As promised here are the results of our egg dying 
a-la Martha Stewart's tips & tricks...
We used PAAS egg dye in classic colors (that means adding 3 tablespoons of vinegar)
black electrical tape, scissors, thin tip sharpie markers & lots of patience to create our eggs.
The Sister-In-Law's eggs turned out the best & were also the most colorful...
As for me, I became oddly obsessed with mustaches 
(I thought the black electrical tape scraps looked like lil' mustaches)
 So I ended up doing eggs with various types of mustaches & colored striped t-shirts...
 I also found myself talking in a french accent & being called a "weirdo" multiple times by The SIL ... hmmm?

All in all we had a stellar afternoon decorating eggs on the patio. 
I highly recommend it if you get the chance & Martha's tips worked like a charm!

I haven't dyed eggs since I was a kid - and they didn't turn out like these!

Kudos! They're so cute.

Awesome designs in the end! You can do different takes on this and do the following:

You can dip dye the egg first before printing writing!
Simply place the egg in 1 cup full of food colouring/dye then take it out, leave for drying and without touching one side of the egg add a little water to the dye cup and dip again! Keep doing this till the whole egg is dyed!

Happy to Help,
