Easter Eggs Part 2 (Non-Edible)

These tutorials use some non-edible supplies to create cool designs.  You can address the inedible portions several ways:
  • Use regular hard-boiled eggs to create beautiful eggs.  Then crack and remove the shell and eat the egg inside.  (I am skeptical of this method because I know the non-toxic dyes leak through to the egg, so some inedible elements could possibly get through the shell as well).
  • Blow out the contents of raw eggs and clean them.  Your beautiful creations will last, as long as you protect them well from year to year (fragile!).  See instructions on Martha Stewart's Paper-Napkin Decoupage Eggs.  You can also buy egg blowing kits, such as this one at Amazon.
  • Buy ceramic, wooden, or paper mache eggs that will last for years.  I found all three types of eggs at Hobby Lobby, and I ordered some ceramic eggs from Oriental Trading when I had a code for free shipping.
