Easter is coming and there’s no need for you to be chicken about upping your Easter egg decorating game. In this post, you will discover several egg-citing and unique ways to decorate your eggs this year! Gather the kids and maybe some friends too and plan to do one or a couple of these fun ways to egg decorate.
Make Jackson Polluck proud
For art enthusiasts, one may find inspiration from Jackson Polluck. Make egg-splosively unique eggs using a paintbrush, paint, and let your creative muse splatter your eggs with reckless abandon.
Glitz and glam
If you need to add a little glitz or glam to your life, this is an eggs-cellent idea. Using painters tape or masking tape, section off an egg into geometric shapes or stripes. Spay the exposed shell with adhesive glue and glam it up with as much glitter as will stick! After it dries, peel off the tape to marvel at your creations!
This idea has to be the most exotic look in this list! Take several red onion skins and lay them in a piece of fabric of cheesecloth. Lay the egg on the onion skins and wrap more making sure the entire egg is wrapped completely with the skins and the fabric. Tie the cloth secure. Boil the eggs in water with ½ cup of vinegar, then let the eggs simmer for about 15 minutes. After that, take them out of the water and let them cool completely before removing the cloth and skins to reveal gorgeous little amber jewels!
Using quilter’s thread or yarn, dip the string in paint and wrap it around the egg leaving colored paint lines exactly where the string comes into contact with the shell. Use different colors of paint to create a fun and unique design.
String - twine - yarn
A less messy version of the “string art’ idea above is to the same thing with the string, only without the paint. Hot glue one end of the string on the shell and wrap the decorative string around as many times as you want. Fasten the end with a little dot of hot glue.
Give your little Easter bunny a roll (or three) of Washi tape and set them loose to create the most egg-ceptional and creative eggs in the basket!
This one has the potential to be a bit messy, but not too terribly egg-streme. Pick up a package of tissue paper confetti dots or cut out your own from tissue paper you already have. Spray your egg with water and stick the confetti dots wherever you want. Let it dry and after several hours pick off the tissue paper to discover a bright and unique Easter egg!
