Silhouette Easter Eggs

March 13, 2015

Today we spend a good portion of our day dying Easter eggs.  Traditionally we dyed them red.  I set aside a small batch to decorate them with silhouettes. They were super easy to make – take a look.
What you will need:
hard boiled eggs
red dye (or any other color you prefer)
x-acto knife (or scissors)
cutting board
contact paper

Start by tracing the silhouettes on the contact paper. Once you have all the silhouettes traced, start cutting their outlines with x-acto knife or scissors. Next, pill off the back and stick the silhouette on the egg. Burnish the outside edges with your thumb. This will keep the dye from penetrating – resulting in a sharp silhouette.
(tip: I find warm eggs work best with the stickers)

Once you’re done sticking all the silhouettes on the eggs, start immersing them in the dye. Allow them to sit for about 2-5 minutes until you get a nice saturated color. Remove the egg from the dye and pat it dry with a paper towel. Start to pill the stickers and violá! You just made silhouette Easter eggs!
