DIY Minion Easter Eggs – die dyed Easter eggs with moveable eyes and string to resemble Minion goggles.
This post was brought to you by PAAS. All opinions are 100% my own.
Easter is quickly approaching and our kids are getting really excited about decorating Easter eggs. In fact my daughter has been asking to dye eggs for weeks. It’s one of my favorite traditions to do with them every year and I think I’m just as excited as they are. This year we started a little early so we could share our creations with you! Our first egg-decorating tutorial is Minion Easter Eggs.
These dyed Minion Eggs are made with PAAS egg decorating kits, moveable eyes, black string, and a sharpie pen. My kids love the way they turned out! The whole time we made these my kids kept singing the Minion banana song and it’s been stuck in my head for days! If you’ve never heard of it check it out on YouTube, the kids will love it.
How to make Minion Easter Eggs
PAAS Deluxe Kit/Color Cups
Black String (we used black jute)
Step one: prepare dye in individual cups. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of vinegar into cup and drop dye tablet; allow tablet to dissolve. Pour ¼ cup water of room temperature water into dye. (Note: I slightly adjusted the instructions from the kit).
Step two: dip half of the egg into the yellow dye. You can see in the picture that I only filled the dye cup enough to cover half of the egg. The longer the egg sits in the dye the brighter the color will be. Allow dye to dry and dip the other half in the blue dye.
Step three: Use glue to attach eyes and black string for the goggles. Draw mouth with a Sharpie pen.
Aren’t they adorable? This would be a great idea for hollowed out eggs so they last a long time.
