Dying blown out eggs tutorial

 Dyed eggs drying. I use cake decorating colors not the stuff in grocery stores for Easter
 Inseret skewer into hole in egg or egg will float
 I used kitty litter to hold up drying eggs to avoid marks on them floral clay also works
 Tin foil underneath catches drips no mess
 My ribbons

 Dye the eggs in a metal bowl holds heat longer and I add 2 T of white vinegar to set color
 I used paper flowers I found in antique shop
 Glue them on with craft glue or a glue gun
 Decorated eggs so fun to do will last for years if packed away in plastic container

 I love ribbon wrapped eggs! I pretend they are Marie Antoinette's Easter eggs

 Laduree ribbon on this one
Dying eggs and decorating them are so fun! I wanted to do them a little bit more formal this year so I channeled Marie Antoinette and tried to create eggs that she would have in her basket --if they had that at her time which I do not think they made eggs for Easter. Next year I will order even larger eggs these were goose eggs from Bracken Ridge Ranch - just type that in on line and you can order all sizes of eggs that are blown out. They come so well packed not one egg was damaged all perfect!
My favorite are the ones with bows on top. I will do more of those next time and I also will spray some with spray glue next time after dying and then glitter them.
Trying to figure out a way to put my MA monogram on them. I tried it freehand with a glue pen it was not easy not happy with the look.
