1. Hard-cook a dozen eggs.

2. Once they've cooled to room temperature, paint each with red acrylic craft paint.

3. Next, using a black permanent marker, draw on the "seeds."

4. For the greenery, first cut leaf shapes from stiffened green felt (a thicker version of regular felt, which is available at craft stores).

5. Using a glue gun, secure leaves on the wider end of the eggs.

6. Arrange the eggs together in a bowl or a basket for a one-of-a-kind Easter-egg display!
