instructions

step-1Hard boil or blow out to prepare eggs for dyeing, whichever you prefer.

step-2Dye eggs red using Paas dye, vinegar, and water.

step-3While eggs are dyeing, make a drying rack with the foam core and pins.

step-4Place the dyed eggs on the drying rack and let dry.

step-5Dot the eggs with the black paint pen to make strawberry seeds.

step-6Print out the strawberry greens template and cut out each shape. Trace the star templates onto tissue paper and cut out. You’ll need 1 of each color for each egg. Save time by folding the tissue paper into as many layers as you need, then cut once!

step-7Trace the stem template onto green cardstock and the flower templates onto the white cardstock, then cut out. Cut out small dots from the yellow cardstock. Fold up the petals of the flowers and glue a yellow dot inside each flower. Glue the flowers onto the stem.

step-8Glue the tissue paper tops onto the rounded end of each egg. Roll a small piece of green cardstock paper to make the stem and glue onto the top of each egg.

step-9Group the eggs into a dish and tuck in the greens. You can also glue the egg tops to the greens for a more “authentic” look.
