Creative Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

One of the best parts about Easter, besides spending time with family and baking up tons of sweets, is decorating Easter eggs. 

The tradition of decorating eggs has come a long way since I was young. Today it's not just about simply dying your eggs with some food coloring and maybe embellishing with stickers or funky designs with crayons. I have come across some really creative ideas on how you can decorate your Easter eggs this year that are not only beautiful, but really simple to create.


  • I have been working on a scrapbook and incorporating lots of Washi tape so I was really excited to see these Washi tape decorated eggs over at The Paper Place. They are so colorful and you can creative with different patterns and placement of the tape.

  • The Magic Onions had her children help make these stunning silk dyed Easter eggs. Simply wrap your eggs in a silk square and boil them in water for a unique look.

  • Crayons are a great way to add some extra flair before dying your eggs. These were created by The Artful Parent who suggests melting your crayons for a more vibrant look and feel.

  • After you dye your eggs, why not stuff them with some cake better for a more festive treat? Cupcake Project made these adorable cake eggs with a "yolk" center made out of cream cheese and yellow food coloring.

  • I love the idea of adding some bling to your Easter eggs. Landee See, Landee Do used glue dots, tons of glitter, gems and metallic paint to dress up her eggs this year.

  • This is such a sweet sentiment from Poppytalk! The secret note inside is a fun surprise and would make for a great Easter gift for friends and family.

  • Newspaper eggs is something I would love to try. You could find meaningful poems or even add pieces of the newspaper cartoons.  Homeroad makes it look so easy with a little bit of creativity and some mod-podge!
