Do you find yourself at a loss for Easter egg decorating ideas? We have hundreds of egg-straordinary suggestions for people of all skill levels.

Prepare the eggs

In order to keep your egg sculptures indefinitely (without giving off a foul odour), you need blow away the eggy insides of the eggs (aka the yolk and the white). First, wash the eggs in a mixture of one cup of vinegar and two teaspoons of baking soda. They may be blown out once they have been cleaned and dried. If you’ve ever wondered how to easily blow holes in eggs, this video will show you how.

Eggs cooked to perfection

The proverbial “egg on egg”? This is a Meta level of cool. Make drawings in the egg white using a paint marker to avoid a major mess. Once it’s dry, slap on a yellow foam sticker to simulate the yolk (you can find this at the dollar store). A face should be drawn on the paper using a black ink.

Brilliance of gold, yet brittleness

To make the egg seem like it’s cracked, cut triangles from gold washi tape (freehand is OK) and arrange them on the egg in a haphazard fashion, leaving space between each piece.

Brushes of paint

This paint, available at your local craft store, is packed in a bottle with a pointed tip, making application straightforward and splatter-free. Place a little amount of the squeezed-out liquid on top of the egg. The dots seem to be the most efficient design.

Stickers for labels

Dot stickers, available at any office supply store, may be used to quickly and easily create polka-dotted Easter Eggs. Your eggs’ shells may need glueing back together if they’ve started to peel.

Adhesive Washi

Simply covering the egg with bright washi tape will make it appropriate for younger kids. If you want the tape to last longer, don’t skip the wash with baking soda and vinegar. If you find that your tape is peeling away from its host surface, cover it with a thin coat of Mod Podge or white school glue.

Those contrasting hues

After colouring your egg with food colouring or the dye that comes in Easter egg kits supplied in cartons, allow it plenty of time to dry. A new colour will be added to your egg now. In order to get a more saturated colour, wait for it to dry fully between dippings.

Baby galaxy

Use paint to make your egg black. Next, use a sponge to paint many layers of blue, purple, and pink. Paint lightly at first, allowing time for each coat to dry in between (less is more). For the finishing touch, use a paintbrush with stiff bristles or an old toothbrush to splatter white paint over the surface. You’re asking for trouble if you don’t cover every exposed surface.

Food additives that change colour

Mix a teaspoon of white vinegar and a few drops of food colouring into a basin of water. Use a spoon to gently move the egg about in the liquid until it reaches the desired colour, then remove it. To dry it off, dab with some paper towels.

Aluminum foil tie-dye

Coffee filters should be placed on top of tin foil. A coffee filter might use a splash of paint or a few drops of food colouring. The egg should be placed on the toast before the tin foil is used to keep the dish warm. After 10-30 minutes, take it out of the wrapping and set it somewhere to dry in the air.
