How to Decorate Easter Eggs Mess Free
Decorating Easter eggs is a fun family tradition that children and adults of all ages enjoy. It’s an easy holiday craft that brings the family together for an afternoon of fun. No matter how artistic you are, there’s no right or wrong way to decorate an egg. But if you’re looking for a fun, mess-free way to decorate your eggs this Easter, look no further than our Egg Decorating Tattoo Set!
How to Prepare Eggs for Decorating Mess Free
Although you can use plastic or wooden eggs for egg decorating, the most traditional way is to use hard-boiled eggs. Here’s how to prepare hard-boiled eggs for decorating:
- Get a large pot or saucepan and gently place however many eggs you want to decorate inside.
- Fill the pot with cold water until the eggs are completely covered.
- Place the pot on the stove and allow the water to boil.
- Once the water is boiling, turn off the heat and allow the eggs to stand for approximately 20 mins. (12-15 minutes for smaller eggs.)
- Drain the pot of water and allow the eggs to cool under cold water.
- Refrigerate before and after decorating.
Tip: To prevent the eggshells from cracking, instead of completely draining the hot water and refilling the pot with cold water or transferring the hot eggs into a bowl of cold water, cool the eggs by running cold water directly into the pot of hot water. This will temper the eggshells and prevent cracking from the quick temperature change.
How to Use Our Egg Decorating Tattoo Set
Now that your eggs are perfectly boiled and cooled, it’s time to start decorating! The great thing about our Egg Decorating Tattoo Set is that it can be used on either dyed or undyed eggs. Either way, the result is a beautiful design of gingham bunnies and flowers with gorgeous, shining gold leaf embellishments. Plus, it’s super fun and easy to use, and there’s no mess!
- Cut each design out of the sheet of tattoos.
- Wet a sponge or dip a sponge in a saucer of water.
- Place your desired tattoo onto a cooled hard-boiled egg and apply the design to the egg with the wet sponge just as you would apply a tattoo to skin.
- Carefully peel back the paper backing and enjoy your beautifully designed egg!
- Let the kids have the leftover tattoos! They’re safe for skin too!
