Home & Entertaining * Easter Egg Decorating

After dying your eggs the color of your choice use your favorite flora & fauna stamps to decorate creating a toile de jouy effect. Next trim your eggs with a contrasting ric-rac by measuring each piece and gluing in place with craft.
Place in a nest of shredded paper for a perfect East brunch center piece.

Making a speckled Easter egg is as simple as painting or dying your egg. Then mix a dark brown paint. Dip a dry hard bristle tooth brush that you will use just for painting into the paint. Run your  finger across the bristles
to splatter the paint onto the egg. You will come out with a sweet robin's egg look.

Sweet & Simple Tip:
Blow out eggs by making a small hole in each end big enough  to blow the egg out. This will allow you to tore 
your eggs for next year.
