New York City is full of inspiration, even on a crowded subway, so here's my Easter egg tribute to the city's transit system. The trains are labeled by different numbers, letters and colors, so with some food coloring and stickers, I created egg versions of the 22 subway lines. I used this food coloring kit and these 1-inch number and letter stickers (you'll need black letters for the yellow line). It's a fun spin on basic egg dyeing and my way of saying, "I love you, New York ... yes, even you, sad, little, unreliable G train."
A couple of tips if you want to make your own subway Easter eggs:
- I really loved using the food coloring kit since it has all the colors you need, even grey and brown.
- You can dye the eggs with the stickers already on them and remove once the eggs are dry. The colors may seep through a little in some cases, but this method was pretty successful for me.
- For a more foolproof method, just attach the stickers after the eggs have been dyed and are dry.
- Instead of Easter grass, I used a shredded subway map.
- And wouldn't these be fun for an Easter egg hunt? "Find the 6 train!"
