a life handcrafted

This is a very simple, but creative way for making very beautiful Easter eggs. And a great fun for the children (also for the older children ūüôā ).


For this methode you need:

hard-boiled eggs

egg colour to dip

nylons (can be a old one)


many different, freshly-picked small leaves

Cut off a piece from the nylons about palm-sized. Place it carefully over the egg with the leave. Now span it very tightly.

When the colour is dark enough take it out and dab it off a bit, then cut of the nlyons carefully and take the leave away.
