I don’t often dye eggs for Easter, even though I really love to do it. Inspired by a technique I saw in this month’s Martha Stewart, this year I decided I was gonna have some fun. Plus, I love it when I have everythign on hand for a craft and don’t need to leave the house or buy anything special.
Martha’s eggs are based on the misprints that occur in the printing process from shifted plates, and although mine don’t have quite the same effect, I think they turned out pretty well.
Here’s how to get the look…I applied strips of electrical tape to the eggs, dyed them and then reapplied the tape in an alternate direction to create a 2 color graphical design. I really like how they turned out. They would have been even better if I’d actually had food coloring, but instead I used 6 year old egg dye tablets I bought at the Dollar Store years ago!
