Looking for new ideas to change up the classic egg coloring project this Easter?
I found some of the most fun and creative ways to decorate the eggs this year…
Whether you need a DIY Easter craft for the kids or want a super fancy look for yourself, I got it covered 😃
Check out these amazing eggs:
Tissue Paper Eggs

You know what I hate most about painting Easter eggs? And I’ve talked to other moms… This is a common problem. The fact that my little ones think it’s super funny to break eggs all over my table
Well, not with this craft no siree!
I love how this craft incorporated the use of paper mache eggs because I had not even thought of doing that! (despite wishing my eggs wouldn’t break every year)
The added tissue paper makes the eggs so bright, pretty, and extremely durable for easter games and decorations. You’re going to love this cute craft!
Woodland Animal Easter Egg Craft

The other week I was looking for bedroom decorations for my little nephew Nolan’s nursery room on Etsy. My sister told me she was going to go with a fox theme, and I could not have been more thrilled to shop for it
I stumbled upon a wood canvas print that said “be brave little fox” with a cute little fox picture on it
Although animals wouldn’t typically come to mind when thinking about painting Easter eggs, these turn out too cute to pass up! They can also be used as great decorations for a garden, or you could make a game out of finding the little animals during your Easter egg hunt.
This tutorial will show you how to make either a fox, dear, or raccoon. So adorable!
Watercolor Floral Eggs

Easter is almost here, which means spring is in the air!
Here in Michigan, our family literally came out of an almost SIX.. month hibernation. We had 13 snow days this year. Which, to put this into perspective growing up I was lucky to get one!
I’m sure you’re wondering how I was feeling staying home with my kids for 13 days when they weren’t supposed to be home, and I was supposed to be doing “me” things
Yes, I did cry in my bedroom when I turned on the TV for those 12th and 13th days
These watercolor floral eggs turn out so elegant, and pretty! Plus, they are extremely easy to make with basically just the right paint needed to make them
These are the perfect garden decoration, and will put you in the mood for the warmer weather ahead!
Bunny Easter Eggs DIY
If you’re trying to tell where the Easter Bunny has been, EGGS marks the spot!
This DIY bunny Easter egg is so adorable! After you dye the eggs using food coloring it’s essentially just taking a sharpie and drawing the bunny on, and your kids are sure to love them!
This is great school craft, or if you’re in an area like me where it’s 50 degrees one day and 12 degrees and snowing the next, a great craft for the days you have to stay inside
Show somebunny you love them!
Color Easter Eggs With Markers
Source: It’s Always Autumn
Let me tell you about why I never use dye anymore for crafts. Last year at this time, my Mitchy and I were doing an Easter egg craft. You know, I was trying to be a cool, fun, creative mom who has everything together…
WELL, in the middle of the craft, I went to go answer the phone and when I came back there was dye everywhere. All over my son, all over the couch, all over the wood floor, up the stairs, and all over my son’s bedroom 🙄
I’m not kidding when I say this incident is what lead us to make the entire house wood floor instead of carpet (on top of a couple of other incidents) Kids, I just can’t with them sometimes
This watercolor egg craft using markers is a perfect alternative if your kids are too young to be trusted with dye but you still want your eggs to turn out as nice as they would with dye!
The tutorial is super easy to follow, and markers are always a better bet with the little ones
Trust me, you don’t want to learn that the hard way!
DIY Disney Pixar Easter Eggs

These Disney Pixar eggs are so incredibly fun, your kids are sure to love them!
My kids are young enough where making simple eggs using paint, and dye is enough fun for them but I can imagine for some of the older age kids doing something that takes a little more talent would suit them
This tutorial will show you how to make Mike Wazowski or Sully from Monsters Inc, an Alien from Toy Story (Our favorite), The Incredibles, and UP easter eggs
This craft would also be perfect for a Pixar party theme activity too. You’ll love these!
Cactus Easter Eggs

This Easter Egg Cactus craft is EGGSpecially great for those who love succulent plants in their home for decorations because it looks exactly like one!
This doesn’t just have to be an Easter egg craft, you can do these anytime in the spring or summer and your kids will love them
These Cactus eggs would look mighty cute in a garden in the spring, or on your little one’s window sill
I love how unique this is!
Instagram-Worthy Gold Leaf Easter Eggs
Source: She Knows
These DIY Gold Leaf easter eggs are truly Instagram worthy!
This year, I let my kids pick what kind of Easter Egg craft we would do as a family instead of being the “Type A” kind of mommy I usually am and choosing for them, and how we were going to do it, and when we were going to do it, and the colors we are going to use, etc etc etc (Yes I am OCD)
I am also quite the fair fairy, so I let each of my kids pick their own favorite craft because we couldn’t just do one when there are two kids
This was Casey’s favorite, and let me just say WOW, they turned out gorgeous!
You need a leafing kit for these eggs which you can easily find at any hobby lobby or other craft stores, and then from there, it’s super easy
They turn out metallic, gold, unique, and flat out egg-septional!
DIY Easter Eggs Inspired by Rae Dunn

You can call me late to the game if you want but I JUST recently found out who Rae Dunn is, and her art and products are simply amazing!
If you don’t know who she is then I highly suggest looking at some of her work and also telling me so I can feel happy that I wasn’t the last person in the world to jump on her bandwagon
She tends to find beauty in simple shapes, natural forms, and different cultures
These DIY Easter Eggs are extremely decorative and would look perfect in an entryway. Your kids can help with you with this, but in my opinion, this is a “mommy” craft
The eggs have “Happy Easter”, “Egg Hunt”, the face of a bunny, and blessed on them
She shows you how to print out the correct font, and create something extremely aesthetically appealing. This is one of my favorite DIY Easter egg crafts I have seen for sure!
Dye Easter Eggs With Blueberries
Fun fact: I grew up right next to a blueberry farm…
As a kid I vividly remember spending days in the warm sun picking blueberries for a small allowance, making blueberry pie, and setting up the blueberry bags and baskets for those that would drive by
I really learned the value of hard work in my younger years doing this, and the memories are some I cherish forever
Yesterday, I asked Carter to pick up his toys and he cried about it for 20 minutes. Not sure where I’m going wrong here but…. Anyways
These Easter Eggs dyed with blueberries turn out Eggstremely gorgeous
They almost look like they are stained with watercolor but not very precisely on purpose due to the white specks that give it an even more attractive look
These take a bit more preparation than just using dye or paint, but when you see the finished product you will know it’s worth it!
Highlighter Easter Eggs
Source: Salty Canary
These are an absolute GAME CHANGER if you have little ones in the house, and are short on time (which you probably are if you have little ones in the house)
These Easter Eggs are painted using only highlighter and sharpies, but still, turn out incredibly cute and decoration worthy!
As stated previously… I wish that when my kids were too little to be able to control themselves with dye I wouldn’t have used it
It becomes more stressful than fun, and then it’s no fun for your kids either! Glowing skin (or eggs) are always in, I love this idea!
Hamburger Easter Egg Decoration

When life throws you a burger, eat it. Or, paint it! These DIY Burger Easter Eggs are so fun, and they will definitely make you hungry
Everybody loves a good burger and this could be a great craft for a birthday party, you could use them in an easter egg hunt, or you could put them in your kitchen for an Easter Decoration
They are relatively easy to make, and your kids will love making them because if your kids are anything like mine Mcdonalds or any place with a hamburger is life
I could cook up a 5-course meal for my kids and they’d be talking about when the next time they get a happy meal is 🍟
I do have to agree, life is better with a burger. What a cute idea!
Ninja Eggs For Easter
Source: Ohoh deco
Hard boil eggs, acrylic paint, a glue gun, ribbons, and some toothpicks…
That’s all you need to make these hilarious and cute Easter Egg Ninjas. I’ll be honest when my Mitchy ended up choosing this as the Easter Egg craft he wanted to make this year I was low key disappointed
I’m just not a ninja mom. I wanted so badly to say “well how about the Pixar or the blueberry ones instead” or say anything really to get him to change his mind but I stopped and reminded myself this is HIS craft
And honestly, they turned out even better than I expected.
We made five of these little ninjas and hid them with the rest of the kid’s eggs in the Easter Egg hunt we have in our backyard yearly
One Ninja Egg= five dollars 🤑
It was a complete hit and I would recommend these to anyone!
Dye Eggs Naturally With Every Day Ingredients
If you believe in all natural beauty, this is the craft for you!
These DIY Easter Eggs made from everyday and natural ingredients are a good alternative to dye or paint
Plus, they turn out beautiful! This would be a great craft to do with your kids and teach them the importance of using natural ingredients, and what good it can do for the world
It’s also very imaginative and can get them thinking outside the box
This is also a great craft for kids who have allergies to paint of dye, which is more common than you might think. I love this idea!
Mood Easter Eggs
Source: Dream A Little Bigger
My children’s moods don’t just swing… they bounce, pivot, rebound, recoil, fluctuate, etc. I can give myself whiplash sometimes with all the swinging…
But, these DIY mood Easter Eggs will keep you and your kids excited all day long!
You need to purchase mood paint for this project, but the end product is 100% worth it. These change colors with temperature like a mood ring, and it will be so entertaining for your kids!
Casey has her mood egg in her room, and she loved looking at it throughout the day. She was genuinely upset when it was time to throw the egg out, and next time I am going to use a fake egg so she can have it longer

Dye Easter Eggs And Get Vibrant Colors
Source: All Things Mamma
These eggsplosive colors will have your kids excited about dying eggs this year!
Normally when our family dyes our Easter Eggs we use simple colors, and they turn out exactly that way, simple
This is a good way to keep the normal tradition alive with nothing too difficult but to have them turn out a little more vibrant. Colors are used like teal, magenta, and bright orange… it will give your normal eggs a little kick 🥚
Have an eggstra special Holiday this year!
DIY Natural Dye Easter Eggs
Source: Shifting roots
When it’s do or dye time but you’re more of a natural ingredient user, these are a good alternative and they turn out so unique and pretty!
I’m far too lazy to do this, plus my kids would get all of this everywhere, but I think it would be a great lesson to teach your kids about the benefits of using natural ingredients and to show them to use their imagination
This tutorial will show you how to use celery seeds, orange peels, turmeric, raspberries, red onion skins, cherries, and canned beets to dye your eggs
They create the coolest and most natural colors, definitely worth the work!
Pastel Easter Egg Decorating

Keep calm and pretend it’s the 80’s! These funky fresh eggs are an absolute must see if you’re a lover of this era. If you’re not, are you okay?
Even my kids love listening to 80’s music, and they wore an entire wind outfit for Halloween last year and we were a funky family
These DIY Memphis Easter eggs can be made using plastic eggs if it’s a craft for a themed party, or you can use paper mache eggs and put them in your garden or as an Easter Decoration
After all, nobody puts baby (eggs) in the corner
DIY Terrazzo Easter Eggs
Source: Club Crafted
So according to this tutorial Terrazzo is making a comeback, but I was not aware it ever left?!
If you don’t know what Terrazzo is it’s a flooring material made of granite and concrete but often times the chips are colored to make a bold and unique statement
Casey’s old changing table that is now in my basement (along with about a million other things that need to be gone through) was Terrazzo material and I highly recommend it
These Terrazzo eggs are a perfect mixture of funky old fashioned and modern and would be a perfect decoration on a kitchen table or in a main living room for Easter
You can make them out of plastic eggs if you are shorter on time, or you can boil and do the real thing and have your kids help you
These are funky, you’ll love them!
Gradient Easter Egg Decorating

Wait, why haven’t I ever thought to spray paint Easter Eggs before until now???
Here I am constantly complaining about how my kids get dye, paint, markers, food, liquids, toys, everything, EVERYWHERE. all over my house. I never once thought to bring them outside and have them spray paint their eggs!
Plus, these turn out absolutely gorgeous, with a cheery spring feel to them! They could easily be used as a decoration in any area of the house, or just as an activity for the Holiday
I absolutely love when I can genuinely use something as a decoration that my kids have helped me with
If you want to keep your kitchen table clean and dye/paint free this year, these are the chicklets for you!
DIY Ombre Easter Eggs
Source: Eats & Drinks
Storytime… Remember how a couple of years ago getting an “Ombre” done to your hair was the thing to do?
Well, it was New Years and I, of course, was on my “new year, new me” tangent that I never fail to go on. One year I bought a two door jeep I never used, I purchased a 600 dollar vacuum another year…
It’s a disease that I have I can’t change myself okay you guys?
Anyways, the ombre turned out absolutely horrible. The colors didn’t blend and it was like going from a dark brown pile of dirt to the white sand in Florida
I was way too old and way too much of a mommy to have my hair looking that way
Well, these DIY ombre Easter eggs actually turn out blended, and gorgeous! They are super easy to do and make a very lovely decoration for the entryway of a home or kitchen table. She uses pink, but I’d imagine you could use any color you wanted.
I promise these will NOT turn out like my hair!
Tissue Paper Easter Egg Coloring
Source: It’s Always Autumn
Eggs, bleeding tissue paper, and a spray bottle will give you quite possibly the prettiest Easter Eggs I have ever seen!
When I stumbled upon this DIY craft I knew I was going to rally the troops (my children) and do this right away. The thing with this craft that I love so much is the absence of any kind of a mess, and how fun it was for them to do
Even Mitch was having a great time with this one, and he’s starting to get bored with fun things that I like to do. These turned out so pretty that I currently have them in the entryway of my home by the stairs
I absolutely love any craft that I can do with my children, and then use. These will be done again next year!
Botanical Leaf Imprint Easter Eggs
Source: Garden Therapy
Wow, these are absolutely amazing! This tutorial will show you how to make leaf imprint Easter Eggs and the turn out is incredibly unique
My kids and I did a project like this with an imprinted leaf on a wet cement slab, which didn’t turn out anywhere near as gorgeous as this craft, and they were still weirdly obsessed with it
I can imagine it would be a fun project to do, and a perfect decoration for a garden just in time for spring
Turn over a new leaf with this awesome craft!
Hand Lettered & Watercolor Easter Eggs
Source: Printable Crush
I love these DIY hand-lettered watercolor Easter Eggs!
The watercolor on the bottom paired with whatever you decide to write has a modern feel to them and would be a great decoration addition to your house
I would say these are more of a mommy project, but it only takes a few items, the end product is absolutely worth it!
You will love this one!
DIY Marbled Easter Eggs
Source: Homey Oh My
I think this may be the most unique and modern take on Easter Egg decorating that I have seen thus far!
These eggs remind me of the kitchen counter we recently had done and I can so vividly picture these in my kitchen or any kitchen looking gorgeous this spring for the Holiday
Preparation for this is a little more intensified than other DIY Easter egg dyeing crafts, but as Booker T Washington once said:
“nothing ever comes to one worth having, except as a result of hard work!”
