Dyed and Speckled Eggs

It's that time of year... time to add some eggs to the decor. These eggs are blown, dyed and then speckled. Use food coloring and vinegar to dye the eggs and a metallic Sharpie to create the speckles. #SpringFever #Easter

  • A faster and easier way to make spots on your colored eggs is to use a cheap stiff toothbrush. Have your paint rather runny or could be thicker according to the look you desire.. Rub just the tips of the bristles in a little puddle of paint. Hold it
  • Love the eggs! I've pinned and will be doing this project! Thanks!
