Entertain kids with a project, and impress guests this Easter with one of these creative Easter egg decoration ideas. You can use them for an Easter egg hunt, a beautiful table centerpiece, or a beautiful DIY hanging decoration.
Stripes and polka dots
This easy project is perfect for kids of any age. Dip your hard-boiled egg into one color dye until they are the desired share. After the eggs are dry, use white paint to draw on polka dots and stripes. This twist on traditional Easter egg decoration will produce fabulous looking eggs that are also fun to make as a family!
Tattoo Easter Eggs
Simply find free images online and resize them to fit on an egg. Print them on temporary tattoo paper (found at many craft storers), and apply the tattoo to the egg. These fun and unique Easter eggs will make a statement – with no mess! Kids can choose images of their favorite Superhero or Disney characters for Easter eggs they’ll love.
Nature Imprinted Easter Eggs
A creative way to add a Spring feel to your Easter eggs is with this fun project. Collect flowers and leaves from your yard or a nearby park. Place the leaf or blossom face down on an egg, wrap the egg in a square of nylon pantyhose (or other very thin fabric), and secure with a twist tie or rubber band. Depending on the color you desire, select red onion peels, yellow onions, purple cabbage, or cranberries to use to make dye. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the chosen dye ingredients, along with the eggs. Make sure to lower the eggs in very carefully so they don’t crack! Let eggs sit in boiling water for 20 to 30 minutes, and you will have beautifully designed Easter eggs.
Easter Bunny Eggs
Create the fun Easter bunny eggs fast, and with no dye required! All you need are small pink pom-poms, white foam, a black marker, and glue. Simply cut out bunny ear shapes from the white foam and glue them onto the top of the egg. Next, glue a pink pom-pom to the center of the egg for the nose. Once the glue is dry, draw on eyes and whiskers. These adorable bunny eggs are perfect for an Easter egg hunt, an Easter basket, or as a part of your dinner table décor.
No matter how you decorate your Easter eggs, make it a fun activity for the whole family. Use one of these ideas at your Easter party or family gathering to keep children and adults entertained and full of Easter cheer.
