How to Make Easter Egg Sun Catchers

This is a whole new way to make dyed Easter eggs.  No need for boiled eggs needed! The best part is you and your kids will have made festive Easter decor your home.

Download the egg template and print the decorated eggs on clear transparency paper.  I emailed the file to my local copy shop to have this done.  There are three sizes of eggs.

The egg template can also be downloaded and printed on white copy paper. Lay the transparency over the eggs and use them as a guide to trace with a Sharpie marker.

Easter egg transparencies

Cut out the eggs and use markers to color.

It might take a few layers and there will be a tie dye effect.

If you prefer a more solid look lightly and the transparency with very fine sandpaper. I sanded the side with the printing ever so lightly to not remove the black printing.  It actualy might be better to give the backside the light sanding to not remove any bits of the black printing.

Try a  variation of this craft that uses a piece of contact paper and paint. These window clings can be cut into silhouette shapes like an Easter bunny and Easter eggs.

I hope you love these Easter suncatchers and make some suncatchers for windows! If you are looking for more creative Easter egg ideas? You will love all these creative Easter egg designs.

      Margie, In the supply this click "Easter Egg Template" It will take you to where they are all. There is a link for a set of decorated eggs templates and a set of plain eggs. Let me know if you have any trouble. You do need to have the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to download these files.
