Decorating your own Easter eggs

Decorating your own Easter eggs

Let your imagination run wild and try making some traditional Easter decorations.

Before decorating the eggs, you need to empty them; to do this you will need to carefully make two holes in the shell, one at the bottom and another at the top.

The way to do this is with a pin; you gentle push it into the shell and move it around to make sure you break the membrane around the yolk. Now, holding the egg over a bowl, blow through one of the holes; the egg will be forced out and into the bowl.

Now it’s up to you how you decorate it, but you can use a whole host of things to create a really colourful egg. A favorite way of decorating the eggs in Victorian times was to use wax, a bit like tie-dying.


Melt the candle wax , and either paint on a design or drip the wax onto the egg to create a more random design, next , dip the egg in dye and when it has dried carefully peel off the wax; the original colour of the egg will be left underneath.

Any number of materials can be used to decorate your eggs, lace, sequins, glitter, ribbons, paper doily’s or just about anything you can find in the back of the kitchen cupboards. Dried beans and pulses are cheap and easy to get hold of, plus they come in so many different and interesting shapes, sizes and colours and can also be painted. The best way to display your finished eggs is in a basket lined with straw or strips of coloured paper made to look like a nest.
