Marbleizing Eggs

Marbleizing Eggs If the earth hatched from a giant egg, as the
ancient Persians believed, it might have resembled one of these in our dreamy
dozen. We used a simple dyeing technique to create the intricate swirls
of color: earthy brown twisting over baby blue, soft beige afloat on
buttery yellow. Every Easter egg made this way is one of a kind—all are
enchanting.

Materials
Egg blower
12 eggs
Several mixing bowls, shallow and deep
Measuring spoons
Liquid measuring cup
White vinegar
Food coloring
Spoon and fork
Olive oil
Paper towels

How to Marbleize
With an egg blower, which is available at crafts stores, pierce the top
and bottom of each egg, puncturing the yolk; carefully expel the
contents. Rinse, and let dry.

1. In a small mixing bowl, combine 3 cups warm water, 2 tablespoons
vinegar, and 10 to 20 drops of food coloring. Place egg in dye, and leave
it submerged until it turns the desired shade.

2. In a wide, shallow bowl, prepare a second batch of dye—which will
provide the swirls—in a darker shade or a different color. Liquid should
be no deeper than one half-inch. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Run a fork
through this mixture, creating curlicues of oil on the surface.

3. As oil swirls, place dyed egg in mixture, and roll it once around
the bowl to pick up oil streaks (below left; remove the egg.

4. Gently pat egg with a paper towel.

5. Let it dry. You can experiment with color combinations: Vary the
base tints and the swirls to achieve striking contrasts, subtle shadings,
or multihued richness.

Thread Eggs

Decorate a tree with these happy Easter eggs in no time.

Use these eggs as ornaments
or put them in Easter baskets



What You Need:


Use these eggs as ornaments
or put them in Easter baskets.

Small oval balloons
Scissors
Embroidery floss or sewing thread
Liquid starch or fabric stiffener

Instructions:
1. Inflate small oval balloons and tie the necks tightly.

2. Soak 12- to 24-inch lengths of embroidery floss or regular sewing thread (use one color or a variety of colors) in liquid starch or fabric stiffener. Soak each piece of floss separately and pull the wet thread between your thumb and forefinger to remove excess liquid.

3. Wrap the wet threads around the balloon one at a time. The thread will stick to the balloon without any additional glue or fastener. Cover the balloon by crisscrossing the threads any way you choose. Use less thread for an open, lacy egg, or wrap additional thread for an egg that looks more solid.

4. Tie a piece of dry thread around the neck of the thread-wrapped balloon and hang it until the thread is dry and hard to the touch. Burst the balloon with a pin and pull the balloon out of the top of the Thread Egg. Place Thread Eggs in a basket or bowl, or attach loops of floss so you can hang several on a tree branch to create an egg tree.

Peter Cottontail

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity, hoppity,
Easter's on its way.

Bringin' every girl and boy Baskets full of Easter joy,
Things to make your Easter bright and gay.
He's got jelly beans for Tommy,
Colored eggs for sister Sue,
There's an orchid for your Mommy
And an Easter bonnet, too.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Look at him stop,
and listen to him say:
"Try to do the things you should."
Maybe if you're extra good,
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way.

You'll wake up on Easter morning
And you'll know that he was there
When you find those choc'late bunnies
That he's hiding ev'rywhere.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.

hese make a wonderful decoration but remember these are NOT edible.

Ingredients:


1 beaten egg white
1/2 c. confectioners sugar
3 1/2 c. granulated sugar

Method:
Beat egg white, add confectioners sugar, then add granulated sugar. Use food coloring if desired. Put in mold; let dry for about 1/2 hour; scoop out mold to the right thickness. I fasten the two halves of the eggs together with Royal Icing and decorate inside with scene and outside with the icing.

These make a great gift and can be stored for the following year. People love them.
