Simple and Frugal Decorative Easter Eggs

by Mrs. Pillars

With two little people around the house, Easter is a time of fun.  Here is one of the ways we enjoyed ourselves.  We made edible art out of eggs and some onion skins we had collected the last couple of weeks.

  1. Collect onion skins.onionskin12
  2. Wrap the eggs in onion skin.  For varied patterns, add smaller bits of onion skin close to the egg and wrap the whole egg in larger pieces.onionskin21
  3. Fasten the skins to the egg.  I used elastic bands, but have heard of people using string or wrapping the lot in cheesecloth.onionskin31
  4. Put the eggs in a pot with about 1 inch of water.onionskin41
  5. Hard-boil the eggs.onionskin51
  6. Unwrap and inspect them.onionskin61
  7. Enjoy your one of a kind artwork.onionskin71
