Dot and Stripe Stamped Easter Eggs
You don't need Morse code to send a message using dashes and dots. These eggs say "Happy Easter!" loud and clear, thanks to graphic patterns printed with do-it-yourself "stamps."

The best way to dry a dyed egg is to set it on a homemade Egg Drying Rack. This will prevent the color from pooling and drying in an uneven fashion. For more ideas, scroll through our entire collection of Easter Eggs.
Traditional egg dye [Pictured: Vanilla Cream, Bronze, Denim Blue, and Harvest Orange (for base colors), $1.25 each, bestpysanky.com]
Matte acrylic paint [Pictured: Dark Blue Medium, Orange Medium, Red Violet Light, and Off-White (for top colors), $2.25 each, dickblick.com]
Bubble wrap (Pictured: 3/16 inch, $6.50 for 12 inches by 25 feet, staples.com)
The dots come from bubble wrap; the stripes, corrugated cardboard. Just smooth matte acrylic paint across a sheet with a foam brush, and slowly roll a natural or dyed egg across it.
