Every Easter, we load up our carts with eggs. We love to decorate eggs with family using everything from Cool Whip to rice to Kool Aid. We even like to do some more elegant egg decorating of our own. Unless you know how to masterfully blow out the contents of an egg through a single pin hole, your hard boiled, eggs won’t last forever. Sometimes, you’re lucky if they make it through just one Easter. With this vibrant Easter craft, consider that problem solved. Some of the most colorful eggs aren’t eggs at all. The secret to the perfect Easter eggs is to use balloons. Blow up a balloon until it’s egg shaped and then cover it craft closet staples to create beautiful eggs that will last you a lifetime. 

You can make these eggs bright with bold colors or use more timeless, muted pastel tones. They’re the perfect little addition to a last-minute centerpiece or just to add a touch of Easter in nooks and crannies around your home.
