What great ideas! Brings back memories of decorating Easter eggs with my children. We learned the onion skin trick from our Yugoslavian neighbour. The variation above is beautiful!

A lot of great ideas! When I was a young girl my mom always boiled Easter eggs in a water with onion skins to make them look gold. I still do that too. Itís a natural dye. No chemicals!
