One way I'm celebrating Easter is sharing a few of my traditions. This Good Friday, I'm headed to Good Morning, Texas to decorate eggs for beginners, intermediate, and advance egg dyers. I can't say that I'm necessarily advanced, but I can say I've had a lot of years of experience. Regardless of my age, relationship status, or the current phase of the moon....eggs and I have always gotten along, especially when it comes to bedazzling an egg or 4,567 for an Easter table.
For beginners I'm sharing a few tips. For instance, if you get dye all over you hands, which I did while getting ready for this segment, you can use a Mr. Clean Eraser to remove the dye (thanks, Sarah, for teaching me this a la self tanning products). If you don't want to touch the dye at all, you can slip the eggs inside a whisk, dip them down in the dye, pull them out, let them dry, and then pull them out of their cage, and repeat. I got a 3 pack of whisk for a buck at the store.
For those who have been doing this dye thing a year or 32, I'm sharing yesterday's post-silk tie dyed eggs. A few things to share on that-you can use a tie a second time, but it fades a little each time. You want to wrap it in the second layer of cloth b/c this just helps the color adhere a little better, but it's not absolutely necessary. And third, this is a seriously NON-messy way to dye eggs....pretty cool.
And now.....decorating the inside and outside of eggs for my Easter table....
When I make confetti eggs, I just stuff them with confetti, and cover it with a piece of tissue and glue. Who doesn't want a reason to crack an egg and make a mess on Easter? Well, minus the hostess?
