Catholic Craft Corner with Paula McEneany

Easter Egg Decorating

Eggs are fitting symbols of Christ's rising from the tomb, for they have always been a sign of new life. From a seemingly lifeless egg, a baby bird emerges 
 

  • Hard-boiled or blown eggs
  • Wax crayons and/or fabric & craft paint writer
  • Dye solution (1-1/2 c. hot water, 1/2 tsp. food coloring, and 2 tbsp. vinegar)


1. If desired, draw a picture or write text on the egg with a crayon. (Note that this is done before dyeing, and that the egg can't be cold from the refrigerator! Ideas for text include "He is risen," "Alleluia," or other lines from Scripture or Easter hymns. Pictures might be the Chi-Rho symbol, the lamb, the empty cross, the empty tomb, other Catholic symbols, or flowers.)
2. Place the egg in dye until it's the desired color.
3. Remove egg from dye and let it dry.
4. On decorative eggs, you can use gold fabric & craft paint to write "Alleluia!" or "He is risen."
