Hard Boiled Eggs

Craft Paint


Tissue Paper



Sponge Paint Eggs

Instead of using dye for my eggs, I dabbed on orange craft paint with a sponge.  This paint technique dried very quickly which was an added bonus.

The carrot tops were formed by folding a 4×4 square of green tissue paper.

Glue Carrot Top to Egg

After folding the tissue paper, adhere it to the egg with a dab of hot glue, then gently pull apart the layers of tissue paper to create fullness.

    1. They are hard boiled eggs but I won’t eat them because they haven’t been refrigerated after boiling. I am hoping that the insides will dry so that I can save them.

  2. This is adorable. I love twists on the traditional Easter Egg decoration. I recently started a Thursday link-up party (yes, today:), and I would really love to see this post and/or any others you would like to include. I am at allthingswithpurpose.com. Hope to see you there and for many more Thursday’s to come!!
