There's no one right way to decorate an Easter egg – cultures around the world have come up with their own ways to enjoy this ancient tradition, and all of them turn eggs into beautiful and symbolic works of art.

Decorating eggs is a pre-Christian tradition (decorated ostrich eggs have been found in Sumerian and Egyptian tombs), so while this art is closely associated with Easter, you don't have to be Christian or even religious to enjoy it. If you have a creative Easter egg decoration idea, we'd love to see it added to this list!

I think you need to use something other than a chicken egg. An egg with a more substantial shell.

How would you get the needle in and out of the egg without creating a big whole in the back?
