  1. I usually just get those lame kits at the store for our eggs. I think I am going to be fancy this year and try one of these.

  2. These are all really great ideas. I have only ever used the kits you get in the store. I think I will try something new this year.

  3. I wish we did these more. I don't know why but I think we've decorated eggs maybe two years in the 11 i've been a mom! How awful. I would like to this year I think! I love the egg with the flowers!

  4. This is a great list that you've put together. At least, now I know that there are more to watercolor-painted Easter Eggs, with which I was never able to come up with something nice and pretty. I think I will more successful with decoupage and yarns 🙂

  5. Every Friday before Easter Sunday my mother-in-law goes to her families house and they all get together to paint Pysanka (Ukrainian Easter Eggs) because that is part of her heritage. Shes been doing it since she was a little girl. They paint them up until Easter dinner on Sunday. After dinner they hide them on the farm for the kids.
