HOLIDAY: 51 Easter Egg Tutorials

In my family, Easter is a celebration of Spring. This year it's 2 days before my younger brother's birthday. When I was a kid, we would dye eggs, but eventually moved to plastic eggs. One year we were at a cabin, where we couldn't dye eggs. Mom brought plastic ones and paint pens. That was the 1st time I learned that eggs could be decorated without messy dye. We use plastic ones with our daughter, since we do an egg hunt, and don't want to have a repeat of that time my younger brother hid a real egg in my dad's van stinky when it wasn't found. Instead, mom uses the real eggs to make yummy deviled eggs...which I'd like a plate of right now. Whether you use real or fake eggs, this yearly holiday tradition is always fun. Here are some great tutorials to inspire you in your egg decorating.

Dye is traditional, but these tutorials breakaway from the standard dyed eggs. These use various coloring, kits, and even Kool-Aid. There are different techniques using things you might already own.
