Color tablets and stinky vinegar have stiff competition these days when it comes to decorating Easter eggs. There are a lot of impressive ideas floating around on blogs and Pinterest (and HGTV.com, ahem), but here’s one that was totally new to me: Embroidered Easter eggs.

Ukranian artist Forostyuk Inna stitched up these goose eggs, but the funny thing is that no one on the Internet seems to know just how it was done. (The commenters on Sublime Stitching have some great theories, though.) I don’t know that I’ll be attempting this method, but the intricate and colorful work does make me want to step up my Easter egg game a bit.

What’s your favorite egg-decorating technique? Or are there any that you’re thinking of trying for the first time?
