We love Boho style, so we made our Easter Eggs Boho-Chic this year! We bought wooden eggs at the craft store, then we dyed them with Ultra Dye. The colors turned out amazing! When the Easter eggs dried, we drew on them with a gold paint pen, Henna-style to make our Boho Dyed Easter Eggs. Here’s how we did it!
We are Plaid Ambassadors and get all kind of wonderful paint and other craft materials from Plaid. We love their products and used their Ultra Dyes for this project.

Krylon 18KT. Gold Leafing Paint Pen
1. Sand the wooden craft egg to make it nice and smooth. Clean the sawdust off the eggs with a tack cloth.
2. Put on your gloves and paint the wooden egg with a coat of Ultra Dye. This dye is rich and saturated and works great on wood. Try not to let the dye pool in any areas.
3. Wipe the wooden egg with a paper towel while it is still wet to remove any excess dye. Repeat with a second coat of dye to get richer color. Set the egg upright in a bottle cap to dry.
4. Draw Henna tattoo-style patterns on the egg with the gold leafing pen. This part is fun! Just start doodling and let yourself get creative! Every egg will be different!
These Boho Dyed Easter Eggs are super fun to make with the whole family! Get several paint pens and let everyone doodle their own designs!
