How do you decorate Easter eggs?

Easter is just around the corner! If you are already set with a variety of unique Easter-themed foods and recipes, then you might now want to focus on decorating your house or backyard—or wherever it is you are planning to celebrate. Having Easter-themed decorations and trinkets scattered around the house will give your guests that Easter holiday spirit which gives this particular day special and fun. And what better way to decorate every nook and cranny of your home than with a bunch of colorful Easter eggs? Here’s how:

Hard-cooked eggs:

  • Place the eggs in room temperature water.
  • Bring to a boil then turn down to a low boil for 12 minutes.
  • Remove from stove and let cool before decorating.
  • Refrigerate within 2 hours of cooking and use within a week.

When decorating the eggs, be sure to use a food-safe dye and work with chilled, hard-cooked eggs.

Hollow Eggs:

If you would like to display your eggs, it is a good idea to “blow out” your eggs before decorating. Poke a whole at each end of a raw egg, the largest whole on the large end, with a pin. With the pin, break up the yolk on the inside of the egg. Blowing through the small end of the egg, blow the egg through the large whole. Wash egg and let dry before decorating.
