Celtic Easter Egg

Ever since I was a little girl my family has decorated Easter Eggs together – I love the tradition of coloring and hiding eggs as a family. A white egg makes for a wonderful blank canvas for artwork with endless possibilities. Every year we come up with new ways to decorate a batch of perfectly white eggs.
