Top 5 Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Easter is here and we all know what that means: messy egg-cidents (egg accidents).  Well you are in luck because I have some Easter egg decorating ideas that will save you time and make your neighbors jealous because it’s 2016 and plain old food coloring is getting, well, old! So don’t be 2000-and-late and try these modern ways to decorate your eggs this Easter.

1. Gradient color painted

So we’re starting off with a design that’s close to the traditional look. But instead of having a solid colored egg, it’s going to have an array of colors ranging from darker to lighter. You can use any color you like as each egg will have its own range of colors.

2. Melted crayons 

Melted Crayons

This idea is great for kids; however, you want to make sure that they are old enough as they will be handling hot eggs. The heat from the egg shell will melt the tip of the crayon and will give us this colorful effect.

3. Glitter dots

Glitter Eggs

This design is for the diva in you! We won’t need to color the egg entirely as the white color will be a perfect canvas for our sparkly dots. You will need glue and some different colored glitter. Simply apply the glue in dot forms and sprinkle the glitter over it. Then brush the excess glitter with a small paint brush.

4. Tattoos

Temporary tattoos are not just for your body, you can now stick tattoos on your Easter eggs. Children will be excited to have their favorite cartoon characters. Adults will be impressed by this design as well. You can find some great patterns in silver and gold colors that would look amazing on an Easter eggs display.

5. Decoupage

Martha Stewart does it again! This time taking Easter eggs to a whole other level. Find some nice flower images in magazines and cut them out nicely. Paint the egg with the color of your choice. I recommend painting it in black as it reflects the colors of the flower beautifully.
