There are so many fun and different ways to decorate Easter eggs! Rather than doing the same old dye kit, this year try one of the creative DIY Easter egg decorating ideas below!
14 Creative Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
Here are some Easter egg decorating tips:
- Add vinegar to your dye. The vinegar lowers the Ph level of the liquid and helps the food coloring bind to the egg better. This will give you more vibrant colors and better-staying power.
- Refrigerate after 2 hours. Eggs should not be out of the fridge for more than 2 hours (unless you aren’t going to eat them).
- Don’t be afraid to dye brown eggs. Dying brown eggs makes the colors different but they are still beautiful! I like to display both and have more color options!
1. Dip Dyed Eggs

So many cute ideas! I love the ones with flowers on them. A few years ago I bookmarked an Easter egg decoration that somehow used the dye from tissue paper. I think. I can’t remember and I lost it in the computer crash of 2012. I keep thinking one of you clever bloggers will post it again. You found some great ones here.
I found ones where the used the dye from silk ties/scarves etc. You mean just plain colored tissue paper that transfers that color to eggs or patterned tissue paper that transfers the pattern?

What sweet Easter egg ideas. I really like the one with the scrap booking stickers. Pamela
Lots of cute ideas – thanks for sharing.
Love the Easter egg ideas! Beautiful! Thanks!
Are those painted ones amazing? We just dip dye them here. I like simplicity, and I’d hate to crack that beautiful artwork! 🙂
Thanks for all the ideas.
They are all fun! I really like the water color eggs or the botanicals.
Hi Manuela, love all the new looks for decorating eggs. So many cute ideas. Love your frame you made too. That turned out great on your other post.
Have a great day!
Those subway art ones are really nice.
We made the MS botanical eggs so many years ago, I think my son was about a 4th grader and he won a contest at his school with one.
I put out Easter decorations today, I almost didn’t because husbands surgery has just kept me so busy. And while I put them out for my grandchildren, they are making me happy as I look at them.

Very pretty and different ideas for Easter eggs! It’s so much fun to dye eggs with the kids, and some of these are new and a bit more challenging so the teen-aged grandkids will probably like making them! Thanks for the inspiration!
Be blessed! Linda
Theresa H. Roach says
So many beautiful eggs:) I like the last ones but look like lots of work! Have a blessed day and thanks for the ideas! HUGS!
These are just such beautiful mimages. The painted eggs blew me away.
I know me too! I just can’t imagine doing that for something temporary though. I’d have to paint wooden or ceramic eggs like that to make it worth my time.
