Now this is a technique I may actually do to create beautiful Easter eggs because it doesn’t involve vinegar! (So stinky!)
With this method you can use hard boiled eggs and they are safe to eat! This is what you’ll need:
hard boiled eggs
large Can of Extra Creamy Whipped Cream, a tub of whipped topping
large glass baking dish
Simply hard boil the eggs and let them cool. Fill glass container with whipping cream or whipped topping. Generously dot the whipping cream with food coloring and gently swirl the colors together with a toothpick. Place the eggs in the mixture and roll so that they are completely covered. Let sit 10 to 30 minutes. The longer you leave them, the bolder the colors. Remove eggs and rinse. Let the eggs dry on a paper towel. Easy, right? And no bad smells!!
Have you ever wondered why we decorate eggs for Easter? Well, I’m not sure why I’ve never thought about this, but I decided to look into it…
I discovered that it’s a symbol of “New Life”! I’m not sure why I never thought about this before! Growing up in a Christian home, I knew that Easter was about celebrating Christ’s resurrection and just thought of the Easter bunny as the “Santa” of Easter… I never thought about the reason behind the tradition of Easter eggs…
In Christianity, the egg symbolizes the empty tomb of Jesus. The egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb…a bird hatches from it with life! Similarly the Easter egg is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave and that those who believe will experience eternal life.
I hope that this will cause you to look at the time you put into making your eggs beautiful a bit differently!
Simply chose a favorite print…save it to a disk…take it into your closest print/copy shop and ask for an engineering print… and Viola! You have a graphic piece of art, ready to frame, that cost less than your daily cup of Starbucks!
some fun things planned this trip and I can’t wait to report back when I return!! You can find my ramblings about previous Round Top adventures here, here, and here. Can’t wait to make some more memories this weekend!
