Display these side-view birds from Meaghan Mountford in little nests or on a bed of grass. First, dye egg blue and let dry completely. Cut a wing from printed paper (from the craft store; or, recycle Thank You cards) and glue to the side of the egg. Cut a triangle from yellow cardstock, fold a tab at the flat end and adhere to the end of the egg with glue. Let dry. Draw an eye with black marker.

It’s easy to get this trendy look from Sugar and Charm. Prepare dye according to the packaging and let eggs soak for varying amount of time. Take them out quickly for a hint of color and leave them in for longer to get a rich hue.
You Name It Eggs
These personalized eggs from Meaghan Mountford are perfect place cards for Easter dinner. Rest an egg sideways on an egg holder and dip in dye bath of desired color, but hold the egg so the top third of the egg stays above the dye bath and remains white. Let dry completely. Pour a small amount of acrylic craft paint on a plastic plate or wax paper. Dip the non-brush end of a small paintbrush into the paint and dab on egg to create a dot. Paint dots around the white oval. When the paint dries, use letter stickers to spell a name or initial. (Make sure you know these six Easter myths and legends that will blow your mind.)
