Easy Dyed Easter Egg Design

My family really gets into dyeing Easter eggs. Despite being a crafter, I am not very successful at dyeing Easter eggs.  My children try to encourage me, “Oh, Mama.  Those are….nice.  You did a …. nice… job.” (I have…nice….kids).  Last year I found my secret weapon for an easy dyed Easter egg design. Whew! finally after almost 20 years.Easy Dyed Easter Egg Design - Organized 31

  I’ve tried using a wax crayon to create designs.  Ahhhgn.  I’ve tried using rubber bands to create designs.  One was great the other 12+ were ahhhhgn.  My new secret weapon?  Adhesive paper reinforcement rings.

 

Simply stick the reinforcements on the egg and dye the egg in store-bought dye.  You can put them on the egg and then place the egg in the dye for white circles.  Or you can dye the egg a light color, let it dry and then add the reinforcements and dye the egg a darker color.Easy Dyed Easter Egg Design - Organized 31

Just use your fingernail to smooth the reinforcements down well.  It couldn’t be easier. I’ve stocked up on the adhesive reinforcement rings this year and now I can’t wait to dye more eggs next week.Easy Dyed Easter Egg Design - Organized 31

    Hi Susan – How on earth did you figure this out? What a great idea! I wonder if you could use the circles to make other images. The only thing coming to mind right now is a snowman but hummm…. I really want to color Easter Eggs at your house! Hugs, Holly

    As we don’t celebrate Easter, dying eggs is not familiar here
    I think it’s sooooooooooooo cute, and must be fun doing it.
    I sure love the colors :)
