Lace Eggs

This Easter, take hard-boiled eggs to new heights by embellishing them with lacy patterns. Once the eggs are dyed and dry, pile them in a large bowl to use them as a centerpiece.

  • Eggs

  • Standard egg dye

  • Rubber bands

  • Rubber bands

  • Inexpensive lace trimmings (or scraps from a curtain or tablecloth)

  • Scissors

  • Foam board fitted with flathead pins


  1. Cut lace into strips long enough to wrap around eggs and still have extra to form a sash for holding. Wrap eggs, securing lace with rubber bands.

  2. Dye eggs according to dye package instructions. Lift out, cut off rubber bands, and unwrap lace. Let dry on foam board fitted with flathead pins.
