Ukrainian Easter Eggs

My sister and I made Ukrainian Easter Eggs last Saturday.

The first step to making these is to prick either end of the egg with a tack and then to blow out the inside of the egg.

















Next, using these special tools and melted wax, we drew a design onto the eggs.


































After that, we let the eggs sit in colored dye.









The next step involved melting the wax from the shell of the egg.



This is a photograph of my finished egg! (my sister totally put me to shame with her awesome egg, photographed at the beg. of this post)





Here's some photographs of all the eggs we have made over the years!
