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.
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.
