Here’s what I used:
Here is what I did:
1. I used my electronic cutter to cut a variety of Easter shapes and designs out of vinyl (I used Oracal 651). I didn’t weed the designs or use transfer tape to apply them to the eggs. Instead, I just pulled each one off the backing like a sticker and put it on a dry hard-boiled egg. *Tip* The vinyl sticks better to warm eggs. Then, I pressed the vinyl flat and tried to make sure there were no wrinkles.
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 even more color, 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?

I love to make SVG cut files and share them with you! These files are available in 5 different formats, so they should work with nearly any cutter. Once you have downloaded the free files, you can use them anytime to create projects for personal use only. Please do not share, resell, or claim any of these files as your own. You can purchase the file with a Commercial License from my shop. Here is the freebie. Enjoy!
As always, if you have any problems with the files svg files, please let me know. I’ve included .png, .svg. .ai, .eps, and .dxf, in the zip file. Just click the green button below to download.
