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
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
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 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
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
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
Get creative with your design combination. That's all there is to it, really.
14. Watercolor Butterfly Easter Eggs
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!
16. Glittered Easter Eggs
It's as easy as submerging your eggs in glue and then in glitter.
17. Sprinkle Easter Eggs
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
Recreating these loved characters is very simple.
19. 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.

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