Easter Eggs, Part 1 of 2 - Fancy Eggs

Every year, I promise myself that THIS will be the year I try a new Easter egg decorating technique...only to end up using the tired old vinegar-and-food-coloring method. In an effort to combat this complacency, here are some motivating alternatives. First, there are the gorgeous Ukranian easter eggs known as pysanky. LearnPysanky.com gives excellent instructions, should you choose to embark on this project. It takes time and patience and, I suspect, a few broken eggs.


Don't you LOVE those little wee ones? Ogle more eggs at the Pysanky Museum.


Less time consuming but still lovely are these origami paper eggs, with how-to from Martha Stewart. I think I could actually do these!



If you want something cutesy, also from Martha are these adorable "chicken" eggs, decorated with felt:



But then, sometimes a girl just wants some bling. If you want to go flashy and fake, then this is the egg for you:


Later this week, we'll explore some techniques with a more natural bent. Between this post and that one, I'll really have no excuse this year...
