9 Unique Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs: including tie dye, melted crayon, silk dyed, hot glue, and more!


  1. LOVE these ideas! I especially love that a lot of the ideas call for materials that are already found in most kitchens/households! When not blogging, I work as a nanny, so I’m looking forward to trying these ideas out with the little ones I take care of!!

    • Thank you, Jessica. They do look so fun~ not sure which to try first with Lucy! Love your blog btw~ we rescued two greyhounds (which have since passed away). Your blog reminds me of them.

  2. Thank you for the round-up! Luckily my kids like to eat hard-boiled eggs – it looks like they are going to have to eat quite a few of them come Easter. 😉

  3. So many wonderful ideas. Bring on Easter!

    Thank you for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!


  4. Lovely round up. I think i’m gonna do eggs this easter, i managed to fail last year

  5. I really love these all especially the tissue paper ones. We have a ton of tissue paper and I will have to try it. Just pinned!

    • I love crafts and projects where you already have the supplies you need right at home. You’ll have to let me know how it goes if you try it! Thanks for pinning!

  6. Thank you for the fun ideas…I’m particularly excited to do the crayon shaving ones!

  7. I love decorating eggs. Thanks for the ideas!!

  8. Your egg decorating ideas are fantastic. The eggs look fabulous.

  9. Neat! Thanks for the great ideas. I like the rubber bands. It looks simple enough that we just might have to try it.

  10. What a great round-up of ideas! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!

  11. Great collection; so many fun ways to decorate… now I’ll never be able to decide! You are a Featured Favorite this week and we can’t wait to see what you have been up to this week!
    Have a great weekend!

  12. When I was a child many years ago every Easter we made what my Mum called pace eggs. You take a white egg and cover it in fresh flowers placing the flower open on the shell as much as possible tie them on with thread as you go along. Then wrap onions skins around then cover in a coloured cloth. Tie firmly with string and boil for 15 mins. Let it cool then peel off all the layers and you have the most beautiful egg covered in flower shapes print of assorted colours. Originally the idea was to roll them down a hill at Easter but we never did that as the eggs were just too beautiful to destroy x

  13. LOVE the ideas! Never knew eggs could be so decorated! Can’t decide which one to do i am choosing between the volcano and the tissue paper… i’ll have a busy easter decorating many eggs!!!

    • I know~ it’s such a hard decision. Too many great ideas from all these fabulous bloggers. Can’t wait to hear how everyone’s turn out after Easter.

  14. What an awesome Round up! Such creativity!

  15. What a gorgeous ruoundup! I’ve never homemade Easter eggs before but now I’m so inspired and would like to give it a try with my kids. Thanks for sharing 😀
