You could dye your Easter eggs a bright shade of purple… or you could transform them into the most adorable versions of your favorite foods.

You’ve seen it all: emoji eggs, marbled eggs, and even naturally dyed eggs. But have you ever seen Easter eggs that look like mini versions of your favorite fruits and vegetables? We didn’t think so. You only need three additional supplies—crepe paper, markers, and glue—in addition to your dye baths. Here’s how:

Strawberry Egg

  1. Create the dye bath by mixing 20 drops of red food coloring with 1 cup of hot water and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.
  2. Soak egg to desired hue, remove and pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Use a fine-tipped yellow paint pen to draw “seeds.”
  4. Cut leaves from green crepe paper and attach to the egg with glue.

Carrot Egg

  1. Create the dye bath by mixing 17 drops of yellow food coloring with 3 drops of red food coloring, 1 cup of hot water, and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

  3. Use orange permanent marker to draw lines around the egg.
