We just finished dyeing and decorating our Easter eggs and we are so, so happy with them! We made melted crayon Easter eggs. Have you ever tried this technique?
In our humble opinions they are just beautiful!
This is one of our all-time favorite Easter egg decorating ideas.
Here’s how we did it…
Melted Crayon Easter Eggs
- White eggs
- Food coloring*
- White vinegar*
*Or skip those last two items and simply use a commercial egg-dyeing kit.
Step 1 :: Draw on Hot Eggs
First we did our melted crayon drawings on the eggs by drawing on the fresh-boiled eggs while they were still hot. The crayon melted on smoothly as we drew.
Note :: We just leave the eggs in the pot of hot water and take out a couple at a time to work on.
Step 2 :: Dye Eggs
Then we prepared our dye with about 3/4 cup hot water, a few drops of food coloring, and 1 Tbsp white vinegar per color.
We added our eggs to the jars of dye…
…and admired our melted crayon Easter eggs as they came out of the dye…
Step 3 :: Admire and Display Your Easter Eggs!
I love how vibrant the melted crayon drawings and scribbles look on the eggs!
And love the crayon resist effect with the dye.
Between our painted Easter rocks, our bowl full of melted crayon Easter eggs, and our bouquet of daffodils from the garden, I think we’re ready for Easter.
