It’s Time to Decorate Easter Eggs with the Best Easter Egg Designs!
Easter is almost here! I just love the pastel colors and Easter crafts and decorations all around.
I remember how we used to celebrate Easter when we were little. We’d go to egg hunts and even get to decorate eggs any way we want!
Now that I have kids myself, I want to share with them the joy of going on an Easter egg hunt and decorating Easter eggs. So, I’ve compiled new and fresh DIY Easter egg ideas anyone can make!
1. Shaving Cream Easter Eggs
Try not to make a mess!
2. Easter Egg Piñata
This egg decorating idea is explosive! Quite literally.
We’re so used to the idea of cracking eggs, so why not just take it to a whole new level and make an Easter egg piñata? All you need are some Kraft paper, flour, water, a string, and of course, for mischievous fun — a balloon!
3. Tie-Dye with Paper Towel
If you can’t paint, fake it. Paper napkin decorated eggs are one of the coolest Easter egg designs on paper I’ve ever encountered.
There’s apparently a way to print the design of your handkerchief onto your eggs.
The secret? Egg white! It was right there all along!
4. Sparkling Easter Eggs
Who says pastel has to be dull and simple?
5. Melted Crayon Easter Eggs
Easter egg decorating ideas can make your eggs look like an entire box of crayons! It’s as easy as it sounds.
All you need to do is use crayons to draw on your egg. The trick is in the way you boil your eggs.
Make sure they’re still a little bit hot as you draw on them so the crayons melt as you doodle away.
6. Papier Mache Book Page Eggs
Basic knowledge of the decoupage is all you need.
7. Sharpie Tie-Dyed Easter Egg
More fun egg decorating ideas with Sharpies! Use every Sharpie color you could possibly use and draw on your eggs.
