These Easter eggs are decorated with easy-to-use temporary tattoos in delicate, gold foil designs.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Prep your eggs for a smooth surface by gently cleaning each one individually with a damp sponge.

Step 2

Remove protective plastic backing sheet from the temporary tattoo and place it face down on the egghell. (Tip: The smaller the design, the easier it is to smooth onto the curved surface of the shell.)

Step 3

Apply a wet sponge on the back for 30 seconds, saturating the paper, with light pressure.

Step 4

Carefully peel off the paper backing and let dry completely.
