Supplies

Egg dying kit – Standard one from the grocery store.

Made these eggs with dye and vinegar to create a very light pastel color on the wooden eggs.

I love how the Easter eggs turned out just with the dye too! So charming right?!

Directions

Dye the wooden eggs with an egg dying kit and use vinegar instead of water. Leave each egg in the bucket for a minute or two until the desired color.

Let the wooden eggs dry.

Once the wooden eggs have dried, you can choose your pattern or design. Most wood-burning kits come with different tips and designs. I used those tip patterns because they look good and they’re easy!

For the writing, print out what you want to burn into the egg, then just trace the back of the word, on the paper, with pencil and press it against the egg, scratching it in so it leaves an outline on the egg.

This makes it much easier to trace! I used the tiny point tip on the wood-burning tool to burn the letters in the egg.
