...and scroll down to see the rest of the ideas!
1) WAX-ACCENTED EASTER EGGS
Beginner? Start here! As Eva instructed us, you just take your egg, grab a white wax crayon and draw the image of your choosing. Then dunk your egg in colored water and wait for it to set. When you take the egg out, you'll see your picture peeking through the color!
2) TIE-DYE EASTER EGGS
First, you take your hard-boiled egg and wrap it in a paper towel. You drop different dye colors all over the towel, then spritz it with water until all the color mix together and there's no more white. You massage the colors in, then take off the paper towel and VOILA! You've got a technicolor beauty on your hands.
Pro tip: Don't forget the rubber gloves!
3) GLITTER EASTER EGGS
For this Easter egg, craft pro Alton DuLaney pre-dyes his eggs, dips them in watered down glue, then rolls them in matching colored glitter. Look at that SHINE!
4) GOLD FOIL-WRAPPED EASTER EGGS
Alton takes his eggs, covers them with adhesive and wraps with gold foil sheets. He lets them dry, then brushes off the excess, and you end up with colored gold-speckled eggs!
5) TWINE-WRAPPED EASTER EGGS
This project is so simple. Just paint adhesive onto your egg and wrap kitchen twine or yarn around your egg in a spiral. That way, you So pretty!
6) PHOTO EASTER EGGS
Hi, Isaboo! For a truly unique way to decorate your Easter eggs, glue paper cutouts of your family, friends or pets onto eggs! (And here’s a fun thought: If you use guest photos, your eggs can double as seating cards!)
7) NATURALLY DYED EASTER EGGS
These eggs may look intricate, but they’re actually quite simple and the kids can help out, too! Camila Alves boiled some blueberries (which believe it or not turn a reddish, purple color!) and strained the berries from the juice. That becomes the dye for the eggs!
8) ANTIQUE EASTER EGGS
These eggs were decorated with nothing more than tinfoil, glue and black paint — literally! Camila just took small squares of aluminum foil and glued them onto the eggs. To get that antique effect, she rubbed a little bit of black acrylic paint on the egg. SO pretty, right?
