Easter Eggs

Easter is almost here so we decorated eggs today! I wanted to do something different and tissue paper egg dyeing looked like fun!

First step...tear up tissue paper!!

Dip the tissue paper in water..

And stick it on the eggs..

Be careful not get too excited! Slamming eggs on the table causes them to crack.

Let the eggs dry..

I'm not sure what happened. Maybe it was the dollar store tissue paper but only the blue dyed the eggs.

...On to plan B... I found the Aluminum Foil Technique. Paint one side of crumbled up aluminum foil and wrap up the eggs. Unwrap to revel the design and repeat to add other colors.
