The striped ones are easy, they are just made with a rubber band. For the speckled eggs you do a solid colour base coat then stir some oil into another colour and roll the egg in that. We should have used a bit more oil but I still like how they turned out.


These are the "special" ones the kids want to take home.


And these are the rest! My aunt goes a little crazy Cheesy.

Thanks friends Smiley. They aren't super fancy but they were fun. We'll save the egg shells for our garden this year. They look so pretty sprinkled in with the plants, they add calcium to the soil & keep away slugs too.

Very pretty! I like the idea of using rubber bands as a resist pattern. Smiley
