Sharpie Easter Eggs
If your family’s getting tired of the same old Easter dye kits, try using Sharpies for fun new way to decorate this year’s eggs!
Sharpie Easter Eggs can be as artsy – or a simple – as you want. It’s something my older teens would enjoy, since they love to draw more intricate designs. But so easy that my 8 year old would have fun too. While doing a trial run, I traced a chevron pattern with a pencil and went over it with black sharpie. My silver oil-based paint sharpie was great for shiny accent dots.
Another way to approach this project is to dye the eggs first and then use Sharpie as an added layer of personalization
