Decorating Easter eggs is always a fun and creative project whether it’s with your children, or all by yourself. This year we decided to try some non-traditional decorating options.
The scrapbooking aisle can be a great place to get supplies. Gold, adhesive backed, letters are perfect for creating monogrammed eggs. And metallic permanent markers can create a very sophisticated look. Move over pastel pink!
Watercolor paints are perfect for adding multiple colors to your eggs. The traditional dying is great for a solid color, but gets super tricky if you want more than one color. The water color paints are easy to use, easy to clean up, and can be as vibrant or as light as you like. Another fun trick is to draw a design with a black permanent marker on the egg first, and then watercolor over the design.
Permanent markers allow you to create very detailed designs and they dry much quicker than paint or dye.
Also, be sure and check out my blog post from last year for some tips on how to make glitter eggs.
I will be sharing these ideas on Tulsa’s Fox 23 Great Day Green Country this morning. Tune in for some more tips!
