And the DIY Easter Egg blogs continue... this time it's the gradient look. So easy it likely eclipses the ease of the last one because you can actually get a few things done while the egg is "dyeing" in the bowl. Put, in a bowl, enough colour dye of your choice to cover the bottom quarter or third of the egg. Let is sit for a few minutes. Then, add some water to the bowl, enough to cover another quarter or third of the egg. The addition of the water simply dilutes the dye and gives a lighter tone to the next level. And then repeat as many times as you want layers of colour. Super easy and with a cool final effect.
