Polka Dot Easter Eggs

Polka dot Easter eggs

I just can’t get enough of polka dots. Just like the polka dot pumpkins that I made for Halloween, I decorated a batch of eggs with a little gold paint.

I dyed a few blown out eggshells with standard red and green dye from an egg dye kit. Because my shells were empty, they required constant pressure to keep them from popping to the surface of the dye. I dipped them just briefly to get the pastel shades and let them dry on a cooling rack set over a cookie sheet.

To make the dots, I used regular gold acrylic paint and a pencil eraser. You can also buy non-toxic acrylic paint, and that’d be a safer bet for hard-boiled eggs. The process is simple — put a little gold paint on a paper plate, dab the (brand new) eraser end of a pencil into the paint, then dab the paint onto the egg. I painted each egg one half at a time, letting it dry on a cooling rack before rotating to do the second half.

Now I just need my wheatgrass to grow a bit taller, so I can assemble a centerpiece with it and my new eggs. We’re having a little egg-decorating breakfast tomorrow, and I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
