Easter egg decorating is supposed to be a fun and funky venture. A plain Easter egg just isn’t going to do! If you love the look of polka dots, this simple decorating tip will delight you. After dyeing your eggs with a base color, all you’ll need is a pencil and a few drops of paint. Get wild with a pattern or go polka dot crazy!
This Easter, take your eggs one step further with these decorating techniques from the Incredible Egg. All of the designs are easy and inexpensive to create and all of the supplies can be found at a local supermarket or craft store. Depending on how long you plan to keep the egg, you may wish to either hard boil or empty out the contents of the egg prior to decorating.
STEP 1: Pick up a traditional dye kit at a local convenience or craft store and dye eggs per directions; once dyed, set the eggs aside to dry
STEP 2: Get a bottle of contrasting acrylic paint and squeeze two to three drops of paint onto a paper plate
STEP 3: Dip the eraser end of a new, clean pencil into the paint, coating the end
STEP 4: Lightly press the paint-coated eraser to the egg to make a polka dot
STEP 5: Repeat this process 5 to 10 times depending on the size of the egg (polka dots should be a few centimeters apart from each other)
