After you’ve hard-boiled your eggs and let them cool, gently crack the egg shell and remove some of the smaller pieces. The more egg shell left on the egg, the better the mosaic design will be.

We love the mix of the springy colors. Have extra time on your hands? Place the egg in a light color such as pink, and then let the bottom soak in a darker color like blue. You will get a fun mix of colors on top of the jaw dropping mosaic pattern.

Purple will always be our favorite. Save the shells to create mosaic eggshell art.
