To help you out with some fresh new ideas, we have selected some of the most unique and easy DIY egg decoration tutorials. Feel free to choose your favorite one, gather your supplies, and get going!
- Marbled Easter Eggs
It might not look like it but this beautiful marbleized effect is actually quite easy to achieve. So we urge you to try it, after all, the unique design hides all the imperfections.
- Shaving cream (whipped cream if you plan to eat it)
- Rubber spatula
- Food coloring
- Paper towel
- Baking sheet
- Fill your baking sheet with shaving or whipped cream until it's about an inch thick, then smooth it out with a rubber spatula.
- Drip food coloring onto the cream. Don't be afraid to be generous with the colors — the more you use, the brighter your eggs will be.
- Use a toothpick to swirl and marble your food coloring droplets.
- Pick up a hard-boiled egg — put on rubber gloves first! — and roll it in the cream, coating it completely.
- Carefully place the egg onto a paper towel and let it dry for about 20 minutes.
- Wipe the remaining cream off with a clean paper towel to reveal your colorful marbled pattern.
- Pressed Flower Easter Eggs
Nothing screams Spring, more than the ethereal Easter eggs covered with pressed flowers.
- Once you have a bounty of dried and pressed flowers, buds, and leaves, adhere them to the egg's surface with a flat paintbrush and glossy Mod Podge.
- Paint thin layers of Mod Podge on top of the flowers or leaves, and let dry completely.
- Confetti Easter Eggs
These confetti dipped Easter eggs are perfect for lifting the spirits on your Easter party. Plus, they are so easy and quick to make, you might stick to the idea for years.
- Eggs, Hard-boiled or Hollowed Out
- Craft Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Drying Rack (Optional)
- Decoupage Glue/Mod Podge
- Foil Confetti
- Paint the eggs and let them dry completely.
- Once dry, apply a thin coat of mod podge to the part of the egg you want to be covered in confetti. Then immediately sprinkle confetti over the mod podge till it’s covered! Let dry completely on the drying rack again.
- Glow-in-the-Dark Eggs
Dying Easter eggs with glow-in-the-dark egg dye is probably the coolest idea anyone has ever had. And naturally, a must-try for DIY enthusiasts.
- Hard boiled eggs
- Shaving cream
- Glow in the dark or neon paint
- A shallow container
- Paper towels
- A spoon or similar for swirling
- Fill a shallow container with shaving cream.
- Even out the surface of the shaving cream with a spoon, and then add the glowing paint of our choice to the surface. I added mine in rainbow order.
- Use a spoon or similar to gently swirl the colors until you are happy with the effect.
- Then, gently place cool, hard-boiled eggs into the shaving cream.
- Let the eggs sit in the shaving cream for 5-10 minutes.
- Once enough time has passed turn the eggs in the shaving foam, and allow them to sit for an additional 5-10 minutes.
- Once all sides of the eggs have seeped in the shaving cream carefully remove the eggs from the foam and place each one on it's own paper towel.
- Carefully wrap the paper towels around the egg(s) and squeeze gently. Do not wipe or rub, as the egg coloring needs time to dry. Continue to gently dab the eggs until the access shaving cream is removed.
- The Easter eggs will be slightly damp & sticky at first, but after 20 minutes or so they will be dry.
- Easter Egg Characters (Lamb)
Did you know that by adhering faux flowers to eggs, you can create a selection of cute little Easter characters? Well, let me show you an example.
- Ceramic eggs
- Acrylic paint
- Assorted silk flowers
- Hot-glue gun
- Fine-tipped permanent marker
- Paint ceramic eggs and let dry completely (about 30 minutes).
- Remove petals from silk flowers and attach to the egg with hot glue.
- Try Gerbera daisies for bunny ears, hydrangeas for bird feathers, baby's breath for a lamb's coat, a lily or rose for butterfly wings, and green leaves for a carrot top.
