Calligraphed Eggs DIY + Free Template

I love the idea of decorating simple and beautiful eggs through calligraphy. But let’s be honest, it’s difficult to write in a pretty font on a rounded surface. So, this year we had Julie Manwaring make us some templates to apply using tattoo paper. They were easy to make and even easier to clean up. Now, that’s a project I can get behind.

PS – Remember this fun confetti egg game ? I’m hoping we play again this year!

Material: Tattoo paper, scissors, hard boiled eggs, small bowl, water, paper towel

Step 1: Download the template—yes! It’s supposed to be reversed—and print it out onto temporary tattoo paper (we used Silhouette Printable Tattoo Paper from Paper Source.)
Step 2: With the print out in hand, closely follow the instructions provided on the tattoo paper packaging for proper application of the adhesive sheet.
Step 3: Cut out one tattoo, remove the clear plastic layer, and apply with a very wet paper towel to a hardboiled egg, again referencing the tattoo paper instructions for additional application details.
Step 4: Remove the paper backing and voila, a calligraphed egg!
