Unique Easter egg decorating ideas. (KTRK)

Turn your boring eggs into works of art with these tips from a craft expert.

Decoupage Eggs Using Napkins

- Create an egg white wash, then set aside. We used two egg whites for a dozen Easter eggs.
- Cut part of your napkin that you'd like to show on the egg and apply egg wash over top. Make sure you only use one layer of the napkin.
- Once the eggs are dry, they are ready to display.

Marbled Eggs Using Butter

- Use a cup or bowl and fill 2/3 of the way full with water and then add a splash or more of vinegar. Add a few drops of food coloring into each cup. You can mix colors, but don't add too much food dye or it won't adhere fully to the egg.
- Started dyeing a few eggs to give them a nice base color then pull them out to dry.
- To get marbled effect easter eggs, use butter! Melt a few tablespoons of butter in the microwave then add about a half tablespoon of butter to your dye, then drop your eggs in your cup. After a few minutes, they should have wonderful marbled patterns.
- Let the egg dye dry for a few minutes and then wipe the butter off with a dry towel.

Melted Crayon Easter Eggs

- Start with any crayons.
- Peel off part of the crayon label and use an old cheese shredder or knife to carefully make crayon shavings.
- You will need hot eggs so as soon as they are done boiling, dry them off and put them on a bottle cap on a surface where they can stay until the melted crayon has set. Immediately start sprinking the crayon shavings on top of the hot egg and let it set. Press a few shavings around the edges and bottom of the egg. They will stick and then slowly start to melt.

Chalkboard Painted Easter Eggs

- Adults only, use chalk board paint and foam brush to paint the eggs. It's important to wear gloves while painting. Make sure you use a product labeled chalk board paint, not chalk paint. Chalk board paint at Target was $8.99.
- Once they're dry, anyone can use chalk to decorate the eggs.
