  • Adhesive vinyl

  • Circle punches (3/4" and 1")

  • Craft knife

  • Dyed egg

  • Food coloring

  • Cotton swabs


  1. Create stencils using adhesive vinyl and a craft punch (1 inch for body, 3/4 inch for head and wing). Adhesive vinyl is good for this craft because it adheres to the eggs well and doesn't let dye seep through. 

  2. Cut the beak stencil from a piece of adhesive vinyl using a craft knife.

  3. Apply body stencil to a pale dyed egg. Gently rub around outline with finger to seal it fully. Dab undiluted food coloring inside stencil with a cotton swab. Let the dye dry before removing the stencil. Repeat process with head, wing, and beak stencils.

  4.  Eyes can be created with an additional small circle stencil or with a permanent marker.
