Simple Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Simple Easter Egg Decorating Ideas. Can I be honest? I super hate decorating Easter Eggs. The dye and glitter ends up everywhere, the store bought stickers never stick, the white crayon is a joke, and they never look pretty...and I won't even mention the idea of hiding real decorated eggs. That said, I have a huge supply of fake plastic eggs, but they look like everyone else's fake plastic Easter Eggs, until now! I decorated a dozen eggs with sweet little spring vinyl in about 10 minutes … [Read more...]
