Crafting With Nina!

Is it too soon to #tbt to Easter? Last week, I took a trip to one of my best friend Nina Dobrev’s hometown in Toronto. Once we were there we got our Easter egg on! Nina’s Mom taught us a new technique for decorating eggs. They turned out so great I wanted to share her way with you all. File it away for next year or get crafty just because! Is there ever not a time for pastel colored eggs? Nah.

You’ll Need:
• Eggs
• Vinegar
• Cotton pads
• Wax candles
• Food coloring
• Gloves

Once your egg is hard boiled and cooled down, draw on it using a wax candle. Keep in mind wherever you draw, the wax will prevent color from sticking to the egg.

If you’re stuck on what to create, you can always write a name or message, draw flowers, swirls, or faces!

To dip dye: Mix ½ cup of boiling water, 1 teaspoon of vinegar and 10-20 drops of food color to achieve your desired hue. Repeat for each color. Dip the eggs in the dye for about five minutes. Allow to air dry.

For a tie-dye look: Add droplets of food coloring directly to a cotton pad. Press and pat the pad with the colored cotton to the egg. Allow to air dry.
