Hay ya'll!! Can you believe that Easter is THIS Sunday?? WOW...time really does fly! I guess now is as good a time as any to tell about my Easter egg shenanigans of the past.
Who hasn't tried the "latest and greatest" egg dying kits at least once in their lives? I am no exception. One year in particular, my dad got me the tie dye kit and we couldn't wait to try it out. We made a little assembly line out on the porch, the weather was perfect...little did we know about the hideousness that would soon occur.
The way it works SHOULD have been simple. You take your egg, wrap it in a special fabric and then use a dropper to mix and match different colors. The goal is to end up with perfectly dyed eggs, tie dye style!!
This is what the eggs should have looked like...
...but they really looked more like THIS!!!! Boooooooo.
Instead of actually producing the tie dye effect, the colors tend to run together and you end up with ridiculous eggs and a waste of time. In theory, they would have been fabulous!
My solution?? Eggs wraps!!!! They are amazing and couldn't turn out better. I have always dyed the eggs a BRIGHT color (as opposed to the drab browns/greens above) and THEN put on the eggs wraps or "shrinky dinks" as I so lovingly call them. Then you can take it from there and add whatever you want!
Ever had an egg dying disaster??? Ever tried egg wraps??
