Here are some of the different ways you can try:

1. Marbled Easter Egg Design. These are eggs are so unique and different and everyone will want to know how you did it. Well if you want to share your secret you only need a few things and I bet you have them all lying around the house.

Here's what you need: Hard boiled eggs, filled bowl or mug with hot water, white vinegar, favorite colors of food dye, oil, coffee mugs or bowls, and spoons.

Directions: In each bowl or mug add a tablespoon of vinegar, food dye, and oil. Make sure your mug or bowl is filled high enough to were it will cover the entire egg. Quickly and carefully swirl mixture and drop egg into bowl. Gently pat dry and do the same again with two other colors, and leave some oil for texture. Then you have marbled eggs! Aren't they just gorgeous. :)

2. Rubber Band Dyed Eggs

Using rubber bands are such an easy way to get a lot of color into your eggs and designing them the way you would like to. You will need a few things but if you did the marbled egg dying then you should have everything you need.

Everything you need is listed in the marbled egg section. :)

Directions: Dye your egg into a light soft color, pat dry and place some rubber bands around your egg. Then dip into another color slightly darker than the first afterwards you remove your rubber bands. You can stop there with just two colors, if you want to keep going dip your egg in again and repeat the same process. When you are done remove all rubber bands and you have a awesome looking egg!

First get your hard boiled eggs and add the stickers where you would like the dots to be. Then dip your eggs into your favorite dye and then pat dry. After the eggs are dry remove the stickers and you can choose to keep them that way or you can paint over the white. Whatever you decide to do i'm sure everyone will love them!
