Even as an adult, I love to dye eggs. But there is something about just dunking a plain egg into dye that seems a little too simple for me. A few years ago I tried punching masking tape with different shaped punches and sticking them to the eggs before dying. Then I took off the tape and pretty shapes were left behind.
This year I decided to try drawing a design with a Sharpie before dying. I drew a decorated paisley design like the one I saw on Pinterest, then dunked it in some green for added effect. I think the Pinterest egg was blown out so it was just the shell, but mine is the whole thing. It will be sad to crack it up to eat it later, but it will be pretty for the next few days anyway.
Total cost: $0ish
