Easter is around the corner and what better way to lift your spirts than decorate eggs. It’s a great way to entertain your family or even yourself.

I know in our family we have our favorite more traditional egg dying techniques but we always try something new every year. Sometimes they turn out gorgeous and sometimes they are just the brown egg that gets donated for the egg salad. Happy creating and please make sure to tag me on instagram with your gorgeous creations @afreshtakeonrealestate.

Puffy Paint. Create a dimensional design with your colored Easter eggs. Simply decorate your dyed eggs using colored puffy-paint pens in complementary colors. You can easily create flowers, geometric patterns, and other fun designs. Have a plan in place before you get started for letting it dry. See how here.
