Hanky Pysanky

Ukrainian eggs are awesome! Growing up, we always looked forward to Easter, but not for the candy. My Mom always made a big deal about decorating the Easter eggs . We tried the Ukranian technique a couple times but we could never get ours to have the crisp lines or sophisticated designs you see in pictures. Ours always looked like they had been made by a three year old with a severe hand tremor. We did have lots of fun blowing the egg insides out of the shell through two tiny holes poked at the ends to keep our eggs from rotting.

Although the process of making these eggs is time consuming, they come in all shapes and sizes and are so beautiful to look at!
