Egg dye? Food coloring? Who needs it? With Pinterest and Youtube, we’re finding a million different ways to decorate eggs. And none of them include the old-school white crayon on dipped eggs. If you’re on campus for Easter, get together a group of your friends for an easter egg dyeing competition. Or better yet, use this time to prep your eggs for an Easter Egg Hunt around school! Flex your creativity and show off your skills by trying one of these ten Easter Egg decorations!
10 Unique & Interesting Easter Egg Decoration Methods
1. Gold Leaf Eggs
We’re in college now! We don’t want our eggs to be cutesy or cheap looking. We want luxury! And nothing says luxury more than a shimmering gold leaf accent. This DIY may take some practice, but the completed project is so worth the time and effort.
2. Nail Polish Marble Easter Eggs
If you’re like us, you’ve more or less bought stock in cheap nail polish and have attempted to marble just about everything. Don’t stop with your nails and some artwork. Create marbled eggs that show off your favorite new trend. All you’ll need is nail polish, water, a toothpick and some patience.
3. Galaxy Easter Eggs
When we first saw the picture of these starburst Easter eggs, all we could say was, “Woah! Impressive!” But it turns out it doesn’t take too much know-how to recreate this stellar look on dyed black or store-bought black colored eggs.
4. Glitter-Dipped Easter Eggs
While we admittedly hate the mess this option makes, we know these Easter eggs are so going to impress when sitting in our Easter baskets. Best thing is that it only takes a few minutes (plus drying time) to do!
5. Mosaic Easter Eggs
Those with an artsy eye or who love to go the extra mile with their Easter eggs will totally dig the mosaic tile version. And while the completed project looks complicated, it’s as easy as gluing a broken egg shell onto an egg.
6. Napkin Decoupage Easter Eggs
Have you ever looked at your paper napkins and thought, “Hmm… that’s actually kind of cute?” Well rejoice, decoupagers, because you can take those pressed in paper designs and translate them onto your egg using decoupage glue and a good eye for design. Even Martha Stewart is into this one!
7. Tie Dye Easter Eggs
For the hippie or free-spirit in your life, you’re gonna want to roll up your sleeves and break out the old-school tie dye techniques. I know we said no dye, but this technique produces amazingly vibrant and cool results. We’ll let it slide for this colorful creation.
8. Emoji Easter Eggs
Does your linguistic skill include tons of emojis? Then you’re going to want to see these expressive Easter eggs. Using bright yellow eggs and some paint or sharpies, you can spell out exactly how you feel about the holiday. We’re huge fans of the heart-eyed version.
9. Flower Pot Easter Eggs
If you love Easter egg decorations but aren’t too keen on eating them, you can still have fun with your basket. These super adorable Easter eggs filled with mini carnations are the perfect centerpiece or basket topper. And to top it off, they’re pretty easy to recreate if you’ve got a green thumb.
10. Natural Easter Eggs
If you’re digging the minimalist style this year, there are no shortages of egg decorating ideas out there for you. Our favorite is using plants, leaves, and flowers to leave nature-inspired imprints on your eggs. Use natural dyes such as beet juice to make them environmentally safe and give it an earthier look.
