  • Egg dyed a pale color

  • Craft knife

  • Electrical tape

  • Food-coloring dye


  1. Use a craft knife to cut a random zigzag pattern into a strip of tape, and position it around an egg that has been dyed a pale color.
  2. Dip the egg partially into the same dye bath again, up to the tape, holding it in until the desired darker shade is reached.
