lace eggs

I love dying Easter eggs and am always looking for new and fun techniques to try. Recently, I watched Angela from D.I.Y Studio & Gifts on the Good Day WI morning show. She was using lace to create pattern and texture on her eggs!! I knew I had to try it out. 

Here is the video.

Fabulous, right?! So, here is what I did. It's slightly different from her technique but still created a beautiful egg. Feel free to try this out for yourself!

Step one: Cut a piece of lace large enough to wrap around an egg. 

Step two: Bring lace together and pull it tight around the egg. I used a small rubber band to hold it.

Step three: Let egg soak in dye. For this egg I first did pink and then blue.

Step four: Remove egg from dye and let it dry off. 

Step five: Remove lace and reveal your fabulous and fancy egg!!

Happy Easter everyone! Let me know if you try this out. I would love to see how your eggs turn out!

  1. This is such a great idea! I am definitely going to try this!

  2. I saw the show too and was blown away! Did you see that today she made cream scones (moist and not dry and crumbly!).
