Sharpie Water-Based Paint Markers in Pastel Set, $16.99,
Stickers or adhesive clip-art
Prep your eggs for a smooth surface by gently cleaning each one individually with a damp sponge.
Place a sticker on the eggshell, smoothing out any wrinkles with your fingers.
Using a Sharpie marker, lightly dab dots onto eggshell surface expanding out from the border of the sticker. Allow to dry completely before peeling off sticker.
