Shared Article: Unique Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Posted on at

Disclaimer: This article is written by Alison Caporimo from the Reader's Digest and since the much awaited Easter celebration is coming soon, I just wanna share the wonderful tips on how to decorate those Easter eggs.

Blackboard Eggs

Write messages on eggshells with this great idea from Oleander and Palm: Coat eggs with a layer of chalkboard paint and let your chalk do the talking. If you fall out of love with a pattern or picture, wash the surface and draw again.

Tattoo Eggs

It’s hard not to fall in love with these cool, no-dye eggs from the geniuses at Brit + Co. Simply apply fake tattoos to eggshells the way you would to your own skin. Instead of bright colors, you’ll get eggs stamped with spiders, superheroes, and more.

You Name It Eggs

These personalized eggs from Meaghan Mountford are perfect place cards for Easter dinner. Rest an egg sideways on an egg holder and dip in dye bath of desired color, but hold the egg so the top third of the egg stays above the dye bath and remains white. Let dry completely. Pour a small amount of acrylic craft paint on a plastic plate or wax paper. Dip the non-brush end of a small paintbrush into the paint and dab on egg to create a dot. Paint dots around the white oval. When the paint dries, use letter stickers to spell a name or initial.

Black and White Eggs

All you need for this monochromatic look is a fine-tipped black permanent marker. At the blog Obviously Sweet, variations of dotted and striped patterns make each egg look unique.

Lazy Daisy Eggs

The beauty of these eggs from Meaghan Mountford belies how unbelievably easy they are to make. Dye egg desired color and let dry completely. Adhere the stickers and smooth well with your fingers. That's it! No need to stick with daisies; use other flowers or any design that tickles you.

Have a Nice Day Eggs

This blast from the past image from Meaghan Mountford is a super easy way to make your eggs happy. Dye eggs yellow and let dry completely. Draw faces with black marker. Feel free to break from tradition and let your egg express other emotions. Above: 'Oh no!' 'Happy' and 'Tee-Hee.'

These are just a few ideas. Read more:
