Decorative Easter Eggs

I admit it, I'm still getting my Easter decorations ready.

Yup, I procrastinate.

I've been toying with an idea of intricately decorated Easter Eggs.
Mehndi and Henna designs have been floating in my head.
You know, lots of internet inspiration searches, etc.

I finally found a few designs I really liked.
Aren't they amazing?

Boy, I wish I could make such pretty patterns.
Instead I decided to use my favorite small elements for my eggs.

Things you will need:

Puffy Paint (any color you like)
Jumbo Plastic Eggs

Lay out a paper towel and have your reference designs ready.
You can't see it, but my laptop is to the left and has the designs on the screen.
Shake up your Puffy Paint
Hold the egg at the top and bottom using your index finger and thumb.
Then the scary part, starting your pattern.

Once you start, you will find it goes pretty smoothly.
Below is the first pattern.

Once you have a pattern you like, rotate the egg and repeat.
I found I can get 3 designs around the egg.
Be careful not to smudge when rotating.
Luckily, since the eggs are plastic, you can easily wipe off a smudge and start over.

I added a design on the bottom as well.
I found resting the eggs in a candle stick is a great way to let them dry.

I made 3 eggs and varied my designs on each.
This one is Michael's favorite.

Here are all the eggs set for drying.

Details of each one:

I just love them.
Not a bad start to Easter decorating.
Also, a happy accident is that the eggs match the paper bunnies
I made HERE.
