Decorating eggs might be my most favorite thing…ESPECIALLY when they look this adorable!

Read below for the full DIY along with some tips to make your chicks look the cutest ever!
–Dip Dye Easter Egg Kit
-You don’t need the PAAS dip dye kit BUT it sure makes it WAY easier ;)
-First hard boil or blow out your eggs.
-Next completely submerge them in the yellow dye. Depending on how yellow you want your chick depends on how long you leave your egg in for. I liked a more pale yellow so I left mine in for a few min.
-Next you are going to use your dip dye kit. It’s so amazing, there are little trays that hold the egg so only a portion gets dyed and you can just leave it there. IF you do not have the kit you can hold your egg in the dye to get the “pants” or “dress” for the chick.
-Take your scissors and cut out tiny squares. This will be their beak. Then fold into a triangle and use your tape to stick it on.
-Next are the clothes. Take your sharpie and draw on their clothes, whether you are adding a bow tie, buttons or dress you can get creative with this part.
-Lastly is the face and hair. So my friend Tara from Rad and Happy (She is the doodling master!) gave me the BEST tips. She says that when doodling giving something a high forehead will make them look like a baby. So if you want a baby looking chick have their beak and eyes close toward the bottom. I drew the eyes right above the beak too. Then add some wispy hairs and your done! Cutest baby chick!
-These DIY baby chick Easter eggs will be a hit, I promise ;)
