Easter Egg Decorating Idea

Looking for a no-mess Easter egg decorating idea?  Dress up eggs with lace, twine, and charms.  I used glitter Styrofoam eggs but hardboiled dyed eggs would work, too.  I purchased my eggs at the Dollar Store, the eggs were already colored they just need some fun embellishments and a Mini Bowdabra Bow!
