How To Put Your Family’s Faces on Easter Eggs

Who said you always have to dye your Easter eggs when you decorate them? I know it’s a tradition, but this year, why not make a new and sillier one by placing your family’s faces on Easter eggs? Go ahead, crack yourselves up!

Here are some ideas for things you can do with this DIY egg head craft:

  • Use them as place settings for Easter brunch.
  • Hide these during your regular Easter egg hunt. Once you find your egg, you get a special prize.
  • Use these for an egg toss and the person whose face isn’t cracked wins a prize. (Who cares if they get egg on their face? Sorry, had to go there.)
