You’ll just need some eggs (we used brown for a cute retro feel), some cool temporary tattoos, scissors, and a washcloth. Here’s what you do:

1. Boil your eggs like you normally would and allow them to cool, making sure that your shells are dry.

2. Cut out your tattoos, leaving just a little extra around the edges.

3. Press the tattoo (face down of course) firmly against the egg, and hold a wet cloth against the back, being sure to wet the paper thoroughly.

4. Wait at least thirty seconds, and gently peel off the paper backing.

5. Fix any frayed or turned up edges on your image, working quickly while the tattoo is still wet.
