Happy Easter! Decorating eggs doesn't have to be messy or time-consuming, as Sweet Paul shows us with his projects for creating beautiful, centrepiece-worthy Easter eggs. And it may serve as a distraction from gorging on the chocolate ones! (Ah, go ahead, it's only bnce a year.)
I have a cheat tip: If you want a coloured egg to decorate but don't want to get into the dyes, look for eggs laid by Cotswold Legbar hens - here's a pic on my instagram. Their shells are naturally pastel-tinted in blue-green and not only are they lovely to look at - I like to keep them out in a bowl as eggs don't actually require refrigeration - the yolks are a brilliant orange that are far more flavourful than the usual kind.
Happy Decorating - and eating!
Lace-dye your eggs for a pretty texture
Go metallic with gorgeously gilded eggs
Wrap your egg in braided natural wool for a rustic decoration
A little olive oil in the dye creates a great marble effect
Sprinkle Holi or Colour Run Powder to create your own vibrant designs
Punch out floral designs in sticker sheets and press for a truly lovely egg
