Easy DIY Bumble Bee Egg

In recent years, my sister has been trading messy egg decorating techniques such as wax-masking, multi-die dipping, and intricate brush work, for single colours and minimalist designs.  Like this Bumble Bee Easter Egg, her new approach has made decorating a lot more fun and creative!

The trick is sticking to one feature colour and then adding some bold characteristics with permeant markers. Pretty straight forward – I gotta say. I’ve been inspired to make a whole series of plump insects or maybe woodland critters this year! Keep reading below, for the 6 easy steps it takes to make your own Bumble Bee Egg.

Bumble Bee How-to

1. Choose your Egg
Decide if you’re using a real egg (learn how to empty your egg) or a plastic imitation egg, which you can find at craft or dollar stores. Some are surprisingly convincing!

Tip: If you decide to use real eggs, choose Free Range Organic. And be sure to keep the egg insides for scrambling and other recipes!

2. Mask-off the Wings
Cut two tear drop shapes out of masking tape and place them next to one another on the side of your egg. This will ensure the wings stay white!

3. Make the Colour Bath
Protect your work area with paper towels. Mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar and 20 drops of yellow food colouring in 1 cup of hot water in a heatproof bowl or jar.

4. Dip and Dry
Submerge your egg into the colour bath. For a really bright yellow, you’ll want to leave your egg for 10 – 15 minutes. When you’re happy with the result, lightly roll the egg on paper towels to dry.

5. Draw the Face and Wings
Make sure your egg is completely dry. Using a fine-tip permanent marker, draw a face on the pointed end of the egg, adding antennae like the picture below. Peel off the masking tape to reveal the wings and outline with the marker.

6. Add the Stripes
Use a pencil to lightly mark three 5mm stripes around the egg. Finish off your bee by filling in the marked areas with a medium-tip permanent marker until you have three solid black stripes. Voila!
