Around this time last year I learned about the art of Pysanky eggs. It’s a really fun craft of decorating eggs using melted wax and dyes. I was so intrigued by it’s complexity that I bought a kit in hopes of making more at home. Well, I think Easter came sooner than I had hoped so I didn’t get back to it last year. Luckily, my friend motivated me to try it again this year and we got together to begin our designs.
There is a wonderful shop called Pinecones & Needles in Belmont, MA with the sweetest owner named Anne. She recently shared a photo similar to this one of beautifully decorated eggs on their Facebook page. I was immediately intrigued by her Pysanky eggs so my daughter and I popped into the shop one rainy morning to learn more about the process. Anne was eager to walk us through each and every step (and had the utmost patience when working with our 5-year-old!), and kindly let me take as many photos to document our experience. So are you ready to learn about this super cool technique or what?!
