How to Make an Easter Egg Drying Rack

How to Make an Easter Egg Drying Rack. Along with the traditional dyeing of Easter eggs comes the inevitable mess of egg dye. Reduce the mess by creating an Easter egg drying rack that keeps eggs from getting smudged and catches dye drips. With just a few supplies, you can create an Easter egg drying rack that can be used year after year.

Step 1

Cut a piece of half-inch foam core into a 12 inch by 12 inch square. Make the square bigger or smaller depending on your needs.

Step 2

Use a ruler to draw a grid on the foam core. Make the squares on the grid 1 inch by 1 inch.

Step 3

Stick a pin into each line intersection on the grid. Push the pins in until they hit the bottom side of the foam core.

Step 4

Cover the surface where the rack will sit with paper towels. Set the Easter egg drying rack on the paper towels.

Step 5

Set dyed eggs on the rack so that they lay on their sides and are supported by 4 head pins. Leave the eggs on the rack until they are completely dry.

Warnings

  • Don't push the pins all the way through the foam core and puncture your finger. Keep the Easter egg drying rack on a level surface or the eggs may roll off. Refrigerate dyed eggs immediately after they are dry. Keep them refrigerated until you're ready to eat them.
