Polka Dot Easter Eggs

Polka Dot Easter Eggs

I had no clue if this was going to work but when I saw that these reinforcements and stationary stickers were on clearance I took it as a sign. I had to t least try and find out. In the end it sort of worked, we had fun, I have blue fingers and hours after the fat only one egg  has been cracked and subsequently eaten.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some cooled hard boiled eggs, paper to protect your table ( we have some cardboard under the newspaper, stationary stickers, dye and a dye hook.  I caved and grabbed the commercial dye , I swore I was going to go au natural this year but exhaustion got the better of me.  Here is a wonderful post from Crunchy Domestic Goddess about how to dye them naturally, I bookmarked it intending to use it.  Polka Dot Easter Eggs
  2. Get everything prepped before inviting the kiddo to the table- dye is not something you want “help” with.
  3. Add your stickers. These reinforcements worked ok, but were really hard to get off once dry. Polka Dot Easter Eggs

  7. Dye your eggs. Polka Dot Easter Eggs
