Go beyond dyed eggs with these creative yet simple-to-make Easter egg crafts.
Dress 'Em Up
These decorated eggs look sophisticated, but they're not difficult to make. Start with plain or dyed eggs. For a gilded look, spray shells with metallic paint (Krylon, $8 for 12 oz.; Joann.com). Then add simple patterns of self-adhesive scrapbook embellishments such as letters and pearls (pearl stickers, Martha Stewart, $9 for 72; Amazon.com).
