Strawberry Easter Eggs.

Dye eggs to look like juicy little strawberries.

Dye eggs to look like juicy little strawberries, complete with felt leaves and white paper flowers. Then, nestle your "produce" in a berry basket for an instant centerpiece.

Supplies

  • Red PAAS dye
  • Plastic cups
  • Water and vinegar
  • Drying rack
  • Gold paint pen (we used a Krylon gold leafing pen)
  • Floral wire and tape
  • Hot glue gun
  • Green felt and scissors
  • Small star punch or stencil
  • Yellow marker or colored pencil

Instructions

For the eggs: Following the instructions on the dye box, dye eggs pink using the red tablet and let dry. Next use a gold paint pen to draw seeds.

For the stem and leaves: Wrap a 3- to 5-inch piece of wire in floral tape. Bend one end of the wire (about a half-inch) at a 90-degree angle and hot-glue bent section to egg base. Cut leaves from green felt and glue to stem and egg, being sure to cover up wire stem base.

For the blossoms: Use a small star punch to cut out paper stars. Squeeze points to curl and use a yellow marker or colored pencil to create center.
