A super cute and VERY simple way to spice up those eggs!
This is REALLY easy and it makes your easter eggs look unique! The trick is making the right color combination. I had a few eggs that turned out pretty ugly haha

    Hard-boil your eggs.

    Set up your egg dye. I just use the stuff in the box.

    Step 3

    Take one egg and dye it your desired color. This color will be the color of the stripes.

    Let your egg dry. After it becomes fairly dry you can blot any extra dye away with a paper towel.

    Take a rubberband and wrap it around the egg. I recommend using rubber bands that are a little thicker. They make the stripes pop more and just look better overall :)

    Step 5

    Place your egg in a different color, the color you want to be your "background".

    Of course the new color will be going over the old one which is why it is important to pick colors that won't turn brown and gross!

    Step 6

    You'll get breaks in the stripes where the rubber-band twists. I think it's actually kinda cool.

    ENJOY!!!! :))

    happy hopping
