We used Paaz (old school) to dye the eggs, and then I decorated the them using a variety of Sharpies®. They came out quite beautiful.

This article is fabulous! I'm going to bookmark it for next year!

Thank you for sharing.

These are amazing! I've actually never decorated Easter eggs. I'd like to with my son, but I may wait until he's a little older. Although, I bet he'd have fun now. =D
