Sharpie Easter eggs

I thought that the Rice crispy eggs would be my last Easter post of the year and then I realized that I hadn’t done an egg decorating post yet so I decided to do these sharpie eggs. We went to our cousins today and dyed eggs so I brought my sharpies and did these! They are so cute! I love the way they turned out. My favorite is the little chick!sharpie eggs- Crafts and Cupcakes.JPGHere’s a close up of the chick!sharpie eggs baby chick-Crafts and Cupcakes.JPGHere’s how to do it:

Materials:

  • Sharpies
  • Hard Boiled eggs

Steps:

  1. Boil the eggs (If you add some baking soda to them when boiling they will peel better)
  2. Wait until they cool
  3. Draw whatever design you like on them with the sharpies

Enjoy!
