Wondering what to do to create that special Easter egg? A few years ago I got a bit obsessed with Ukranian Easter eggs. They took loads of time, but resulted in some very attractive eggs that would be memorable to any ovorecipient.

After blowing out the eggs, I had a very nice omelet with garlic from the garden. Over a period of a few days, I made about a half dozen eggs, each with individual designs dyed onto the surface of the shell. It was a nice way to spend the days leading up to Easter. The other day I saw one of the eggs on my parents’ table as part of their holiday setup. Now I wish I had made more.

Here are some instructions from Learn Pysanky:

Give it a try and show us your eggies in the MAKE Flickr pool.
