Instead of dying your eggs this year, whip out a permanent marker and make some bold pattern eggs to showcase.  Because, why not?

Prep It:

Do It!:

  1. Prep your eggs by either hard boiling them (for short term display because of spoilage), blowing out the yolks by poking a hole in the top and bottom with a needle (save the liquid eggs for a quiche!) or using paper maché eggs (most long lasting and animal friendly option).
  2. Draw different patterns onto the eggs using different sized permanent markers. (TIP: have fun with these.  The little hand done touches are what make these so cool looking. Do polkadots, stripes, fingerprints, all black, etc.)
  3. Display and enjoy! (TIP: I styled mine in an oversized mason jar and in a glass jewelry box with some dried straw (from crafts store) for nesting.  I also think these look cute displayed in the cardboard egg carton with the top ripped off and feathers scattered around!)
