This year I decided to forgo traditional egg dying for something that would last a little longer. I have started to grow my collections of holiday decor now that we have a little one to decorate for. Since Brooklyn is so small she wouldn't miss out on dying eggs anyways.
I blew out the eggs and went to town with colored sharpies. I also decided to make a few into ornaments. I just took a piece of thin twine and strung it threw the egg with a button on the top and bottom to hide the holes.
