When I was little, egg decorating meant getting one of those boxes of Easter egg dye and turning a dozen eggs pastel. If I was really feeling adventurous, I’d use that little wax crayon to draw on the eggs first. I’ve experimented with homemade dyes and made some really neat decoupage Easter eggs but for the most part, we simply dye our Easter eggs different colors.
