Classic Monster Easter Eggs.

Easter is one of those holidays that we do just for Violet. She really loves Easter! We feel pretty indifferent to it, but wanted to make some eggs with Violet so she didn't feel jipped on the experience. We sat for awhile thinking about what kind of eggs we would do. Many ideas were thrown out, but I really wanted to do something that hadn't been done before. While looking at the eggs I realized that the shape reminded me of the Bride of Frankenstein's beehive hair. That was it! Classic horror monsters. We decided to dye some of the eggs for more pops of color. Our Dracula had to be purple in honor of the Count on Sesame Street. We had so much fun making these and adding a little horror to such a wholesome holiday.
