Easter is just two days away, which means we get to dye our Easter eggs tomorrow!  I’ve always enjoyed being creative when dying Easter eggs. For the past few years, I’ve cut out vinyl stencils to use on the eggs and they have turned out so cute.  Today, I’d like to show you some of the fun designs we have been able to create.

Here’s what I used:

– Hard boiled Eggs
Egg dye kit
Vinyl for stencil
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Cut File (see link below)

Here is what I did:

1.   I used my electronic cutter to cut a variety of Easter shapes and designs out of vinyl. I didn’t weed the designs or use transfer tape to apply them to the eggs.  I just pulled each one of the backing and put it on a dry hard boiled egg like a sticker.  *Tip* The vinyl sticks better to warm eggs.  I pressed the vinyl flat and tried to make sure there were no wrinkles.Stenciled Easter Eggs and Free Easter Shapes SVG cut file for SIlhouette and Cricut

2.   Then, I placed the egg in the dye.  Once it was a color I liked, I took it out and put it on a paper towel to dry.

3.  When it was dry, I carefully removed the vinyl.

They’re not perfect, some of the dye gets under the vinyl, but overall, they look great.  It’s fun to be creative.  For some eggs, I would dye the egg before putting on the vinyl.  After it was dry, I put on the vinyl and put it in a different color of dye.

I love that this is such an easy project.  Kids of all ages will love using the vinyl stencils to create fun and unique eggs.  Do you like to dye Easter eggs? Have you done anything creative with them?
