Here's How To Paint Your Own Easter Eggs!

Painting eggs in different colors and with different patterns and designs is a tradition over Easter. You can also buy ready made hand painted wooden and porcelain eggs. But if you want to make and decorate your own it is very easy.

All you have to do is the following few steps to create the perfect mixture of Easter eggs.

Boil your eggs until they are hard boiled.

Wait until they cool down, put in a large cup of cold water if you want them to cool down faster.

For painting eggs you will also need to get some food dyes in different colors, some paint brushes and some stencil designs if you want to add a pattern, theme or design over the plain colors.

Then paint your eggs in different colors and leave to dry.

You can decorate them with different designs as well using your stencils or creating your own by hand.

Add the eggs to a decorative bowl or basket and there you have it, handmade colorful Easter eggs!

      I always made Easter eggs for the children until my younger daughter took over that task. My older daughter does an egg-hunt in the garden.

      We always have fish on a Friday (just because it's traditional), as well as hot cross buns - delicious. Then we give Easter eggs on the Sunday.

      For me, it's a time to go out and enjoy the Spring; family walks, maybe a little car ride to somewhere in the country.

      A Simnel cake is also traditional here; I made one once and it's quite fiddly but looks great when finished and iced, with a marzipan ball for each disciple arranged round the top.

      Spring is the best time of year so I love Easter.

      Interesting hub. Ann
