Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
Here are some great no-dye egg decorating ideas that will help keep your house and kids mess free this Easter!
Use black chalkboard paint to coat paper mache eggs then use chalk to decorate and redecorate them year after year!
Use temporary sticker tattoos to decorate your eggs with everything from flowers to action heroes. Simply place the tattoo on the egg, dampen it lightly, wrap a damp cloth around the egg for thirty seconds, and unwrap.
Japanese Washi paper is made from natural materials and decorated in a myriad of beautiful and fun styles. Wrap your whole egg or cut out designs for solo application!
