  • Blades of grass

steps

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