Egg Decorating Ideas to Welcome Easter!

Easter Egg Design Art

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 Easter egg decorating ideas anyone can make!

1. Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

|

Have fun mixing colors while making these Easter eggs with shaving cream. It’s as easy as combining different liquid food colors in a bowl filled with shaving cream.

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. Paper Napkin Decorated Easter Eggs

|

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

|

Going for a sparkly look this Easter? Get some glue, a bunch of glitters, and bedazzle your 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

|

If you don’t want to use real eggs, make them yourself! Although we’re talking about egg decorating ideas, there’s always room for going a little bit further and making the egg itself.

Basic knowledge of 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.

Once you’re done, use a medicine dropper to drizzle the eggs with rubbing alcohol. The results are these eye-catching Sharpie tie-dyed Easter eggs!

8. Tattoo Eggs

|

This egg decorating idea is just ingenious. Instead of putting temporary tattoos on your arm, put them on your Easter eggs.

No new complicated steps required! It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

9. How to Blow Out Eggs

|

If you want hollow eggs, then this should be a part of your hunt for egg decorating ideas.

Blowing out an egg is pretty easy. Just use a hand drill to punch a hole in the egg and a baby aspirator to blow out its contents.

Now you’re free to decorate them any way you want!

10. Disney Eggs

|

Of course, there are egg decorating ideas where our favorite Disney characters are included. Look for temporary Disney tattoos and a damp sponge.

Voila! You’ve got not just regular Easter eggs, but Disney Easter eggs!

11. DIY Speckled Eggs

|

Who knew coating plastic eggs with some paint would yield fantastic results? These DIY speckled eggs are really just that easy to make.

If you want to try something simple this Easter, this is the egg decorating idea for you!

12. Sharpie Bunny Eggs

|

You can do almost anything with Sharpies. Make a bunny pattern, draw some dots around it, and voila!

Your very own Sharpie bunny egg! This must be the Easter bunny’s favorite egg decorating idea.

13. DIY Washi Tape Easter Eggs

|

Another great craft project you can make with washi tape is washi tape Easter eggs! Simply get your favorite washi tape patterns and cut them into different sizes.

Get creative with your design combination. That’s all there is to it, really.

|

If you love butterflies, then you’re in for a treat. Make these adorable watercolor butterfly Easter eggs this Easter!

It’s one of those egg decorating ideas which need a lot of patience and focus. Watercolor is a tricky medium, but it’s worth it.

15. Chalk Paint Easter Eggs

|

If you still have some leftover chalk paint from other craft projects, you can use them for egg decorating ideas. Simply paint the eggs black and let them dry.

Now use a chalk to draw on your chalk paint Easter eggs. Be as imaginative as you can be!

Making glittered eggs will make Easter egg hunting a bit easier, but a lot more fun. Stumbling upon glittered eggs is like finding a trove of gleaming real treasures.

It’s as easy as submerging your eggs in glue and then in glitter.

|

With this egg decorating idea, you’ll realize there’s a fine line between pastries and egg decorating. Who says sprinkles only go on doughnuts and ice cream?

Your sprinkle Easter eggs will also give Easter egg hunters a sweet delight!

18. Minion Eggs

|

Easter won’t be complete without these cute yellow creatures. For Minion eggs, you’ll need blue and yellow plastic eggs, electric tape, and a sharpie.

Recreating these loved characters is very simple.

19. Marbleized Easter Eggs

|

Remember that post we did on how to marbleize a bowl? Did you know you can use the same technique to create your marbleized Easter eggs?

It’s as easy as creating marbleized patterns by swirling nail polish around a bowl of cold water!

20. Sequined Easter Eggs

Among these egg decorating ideas, these sequined Easter eggs are probably the most fashionable. If you like your sequins to follow a pattern, all you need to do is re-create this idea with a straight pin.

This might just be the most opulent egg decorating idea out there. Paint your Easter eggs the traditional way, but this time: use sheets of gold leaf afterward.

Just be careful because they’re very fragile. Golden marbled eggs may look luxurious but they’re really easy to make!

27. Photo Print Easter Egg
