These eggs by Etsy user 'acht15' take quite a different approach to Easter egg decorating, using a needle and colored thread to adorn eggs rather than dyes.

To create these amazing eggs, regular chicken eggs are used as the "fabric" for this cross stitch craft and the shells are actually stitched into, instead of tacking the threads in place like you might think.

The designs are not specific to Easter, but some of the decorations available in the online shop feature adorable patterns like hearts and flowers, plus a small strap to hang the eggs from that makes them perfect for the occasion. Individual eggs sell for an average of about $20 and if you're not particularly crafty, it's probably easier to pay the price rather than attempt a DIY on these embroidered eggs.
