It’s hard to believe that Easter is already here. Where has the year gone? Thought I better get busy coloring eggs since Easter is this weekend. I decided to try something a little different this year. Lace and Tulle Easter Eggs.
To boil eggs: Place all eggs in large pot. Make sure they are all on the bottom. (No Stacking). Fill with water to cover eggs. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for 3 minutes. Then turn off the heat and let eggs set for 15 minutes in hot water. Remove from water and let cool.
Cut your lace into strips and tie around center of eggs. I covered the whole egg with the tulle and used a rubber band to hold it in place. Make sure everything is tied tightly.
Looks like we are having Egg Cocktails. YUM! Just Kidding! Got to admit the colors look pretty in those stem glasses. In small bowls (I used Ice Tea Glasses) mix together 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and several drops of food coloring. I used yellow, blue and red for my eggs. Carefully place one egg in each cup of food colored water. Leave eggs in color for 15 minutes. Use a spoon to remove the egg and place on a paper towel to dry.
If you look closely you can see the tulle design on the egg.
This lace egg did not turn out the way I was hoping for. Should have used a more decorative lace. Oh well. I’m too tired to make another one right now. And the yellow egg was too light to really show the lace. Lesson learned. Make sure your colors are dark and the lace has more defined designs. Maybe I will try rick rack next time. 🙂
