This will always be a great idea for a bright and colorful Easter, but there are a lot of other cool ways to decorate your Easter eggs that you may have never heard of. So, check out these one of a kind ideas to design your eggs a little bit differently this year!

  • Gold metallic paint
  • Box to use as a “spray booth”
  • 3 Dimensional paint (used for writing on the eggs)
  • Wooden skewer
  • Empty egg container

Instructions:
1. Boil your eggs or blow-out the egg’s insides.
2. Use 3 dimensional paint to write on your eggs or create designs of your choice.
3. Create holes at either end and insert a long wooden skewer through the egg.
4. Using an old empty egg container, insert the egg/skewer into the base.
5. Use a box to create a “spray booth” so you don’t leave too much of a mess.

Rubber Band Dyed Eggs
This simple craft is easy for the kids to make and adds a unique touch to the traditional dyed Easter eggs!

You Will Need:

  • Eggs
  • Rubberbands
  • Dye
  • Food coloring

Instructions:
1. Boil 1 cup of water for each dye color, adding 2 tsp. of white vinegar.
2. Then add food coloring according to the package directions, or create your own shades.
3. Using different sized rubber bands, create random patterns onto the eggs.
4. Make sure the lines are straight and even and be sure to keep the bands flat so that they only twist at the points where the bands meet.
5. Once you have the bands positioned the way you’d like, dip them into the dye and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
6. Add a two-tone effect by dying your eggs first, then applying the band and dipping them in a darker shade of dye.
7. Let eggs dry before removing rubber bands.

Sprinkled Eggs
Sprinkles don’t only have to go on ice cream, glue them to your eggs for a festive style look!

  • Paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Spoon
  • Freezer/Wax paper

Instructions:
1. Pour sprinkles into a medium sized bowl and squeeze some glue onto freezer or wax paper.
2. Use a paintbrush to cover your egg in a layer of glue.
3. Then dip your egg in the sprinkles and press down firmly, only covering half with sprinkles.
4. Let go of your egg into the bowl, and then use a spoon to cover the other half with sprinkles.
5. Seal the sprinkles onto the egg by firmly pressing against and around your egg using the arc of the spoon.
6. Let your egg partially dry in the bowl, then place on a wire rack to dry completely.

6. You can also dye your eggs first if desired, and then place the tattoo on it for some extra color!
