With the advent of Pinterest, long gone are the days of the Paas Easter Egg dying kit in my house. Can anyone else relate? Easter egg decorating is actually a craft that I feel comfortable tackling. Some of the ideas below were done by yours truly, so if I can do it, anyone can. This year, why don’t you think outside the “carton” and try something new!
Can you believe that the eggs below are colored using whipped cream??? That is what gives them their dreamy watercolor look. Click on the source below for the full tutorial!
These ombre dyed eggs by yours truly could not be simpler. You simply increase the level of dye exponentially. I opted for blue, but you could use the hue of your choice. You can read the full tutorial here.
These botanical eggs look too good to be true and they are! The secret?? Temporary tattoos. No wonder the artwork looks like perfection!
Waste not want not. These unique eggs use broken shells to create a mosaic effect. How cool it that??
I created these decoupage eggs on a whim. All you need is paper napkins of your choice and Mod Podge. Paper napkins come in such a variety of patterns and colors, the possibilities are endless. You can read the full tutorial here.
These DIY marbled eggs actually use nail polish to achieve this unique look. I adore the on-trend indigo color as well. For a full tutorial click on the source below.

Would you believe me if I told you that these eggs were dyed using Kool-Aid? I love the abstract lines and if you tell your kids that Kool-Aid is involved, they might just want to try something different this year.
Gold is so on trend right now, why not incorporate it into your Easter theme. These gold foil eggs are gorgeous with their bold colors and gold highlights.
I love the idea of cameo eggs. These silhouette based eggs look a little daunting, however the precise lines can be created by using contact paper. Why not have your little cuties on your eggs this year?
These moss-covered eggs are simple but so adorable. You could customize them any way you like. I have so much moss lying around my house from various craft projects, I could do soo many of these!
All of these ideas sound totally doable, right? I am tempted to try more than one. Well, I guess we will see how much dye, whipped cream, or Kool-Aid gets spilled in the process!
Do you have a favorite method for dying Easter eggs? Do tell. I would love to hear your tips and tricks.
