Project

Dyed Eggs with Grass Appliques

Introduction

For an elegant display, place these eggs in miniature off-white terra-cotta pots, and arrange them on a windowsill, mantel, or sideboard.

Before you begin, learn how-to Blow out Eggs.

Materials

  • Eggs
  • Foam board
  • Paintbrush
  • Mod Podge
  • Blades of grass

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Before decorating eggs, you'll need to make a drying rack: Insert flathead pins into a piece of foam board, creating evenly spaced rows. Blow out and dye eggs; set on rack to dry, about 30 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Cut about 10 blades for 1 egg from a flat of wheatgrass. Using a paintbrush, coat part of the egg with a glue sealant, such as Mod Podge. Place a few blades on this section, and apply sealant over blades.

  3. Step 3

    Let dry, 20 to 30 minutes. Repeat to adhere blades to the remaining sections.
