Easter Egg Drying Pin-Board

The best way to dry a dyed egg is to set it on a pin-board. This will prevent the color from pooling and drying in an uneven fashion. The board is simple to make and can be saved and reused year after year.

How-To Make the Drying Pin-Board

Using a pencil and rule, draw a 1-inch grid on a sheet of 1/2-inch thick foam board. Push flathead pins into the foam, one at intersecting corner in the grid. Use tongs to remove eggs from the dye, and set them on the pin-board to dry. 

Double-Use Tool

A glittering rack, used to catch glitter that falls from sparkly craft projects, could also be used in place of a pin-board.
