8 Unique Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

April 17, 2014 | Posted By: Peter Siess | Categorized in: FatWallet


It's the time of the year when egg sales go up 420% (...that's a made up statistic)! It's a classic tradition of boiling and dunking, but solid colored eggs are for amateurs. This year get your creativity hopping and take the classic to the next level. We're talking accessories, patterns, the works! You can hard-boil your eggs, blow our your eggs, or even get away with paper mached or wooden eggs in some cases. To challenge your views on the classic Easter eggs, here are some unique twists to the egg dyeing tradition!

Happy Easter!
