Ideas for Decorating Easter Eggs

Here are some Easter egg decorating ideas for you to try...

  • Tye Dyed Eggs - Try wrapping your egg with different sizes of rubber bands and dipping in the first color of dye. let egg dry and remove rubber bands to dip in another color. gives egg a neat effect! Contributed by Dragonfly1970@aol.com
  • Decorate with stickers, stars or press on dots.
  • Paint with nail polish; clear, colors & glitter. Try painting first and then dyeing as usual. The dye will adhere where the nail polish isn't.
  • Draw designs with crayon - if you can do this with warm eggs the crayon will sort of melt onto the shell. Again, try dyeing afterward, the dye will adhere where the crayon isn't.
  • Light a candle and let the wax drip in stripes onto the egg.
  • Decorate with tiny candies, like for cake decorating. Attach with ake decorating gel.
  • Spatter with paint using an old toothbrush.
Natural Dyes
Make your own dye using things in nature. Add a tsp of vinegar to your water when boiling your eggs, then add the materials to make the color and boil for 15 minutes. If you want a darker color, leave the eggs in the water with the dye material overnight. For red, use fresh beets, cranberries, or frozen raspberries. For orange, use yellow onion skins. For yellow, use orange or lemon peels, carrot tops, celery seed, ground cumin, or ground turmeric. For green: spinach leaves, greenish-yellow, use yellow Delicious apple peelings. For blue, use canned blueberries or red cabbage leaves. Use brewed coffee or tea for brownish beige. (Thanks to TheFUNPlace for this idea!)
