Don't you love it when projects are so simple? Stop fumbling with plastic spoons trying to triple-dip stripes onto your Easter egg. You can get the same colorful pattern, in a convenient 2-dimensional form, without any dye stains thanks to this paint chip Easter egg garland. The idea came from Modern Parents Messy Kids.
