I can’t believe that we are just two weeks away from Easter. I feel like the year has just begun but it’s already nearly April! Easter is probably my favourite holiday not just because I love bunnies, eggs and chocolates but also because Easter takes me back to when I was a kid. We always, always did some egg decorating and I loved it – right from learning how to empty eggs to painting them and of course breaking many along the way. I’d like to do some egg decorating with Anya soon so I went looking for Easter egg decorating ideas and I found so much inspiration. From simple coloured eggs to really fun faces painted on, there is so much you can do with the humble little egg. Here are 10 of my favourite finds:
How gorgeous are these Easter eggs? I love the simple colour scheme of just two colours and the faces are just so sweet.
These Easter eggs have been dyed in various pastel shades and look so pretty. You can of course choose any colours you like but I love the soft tones of these.
For something a bit quirkier try making these colourful easter egg sculptures. They’d make such a fun and unusual table decoration for an Easter meal.
These Easter eggs have been decorated with felt tip pens and they look so great. I especially love the chick and bunny ones and the polka dotted ones. So easy to do with any pattern you like.
I wish I had thought of putting mini party hats on to Easter eggs – the eggs look so darn cute! To make these easier I wouldn’t bother with the bows as the hats are more than cute enough.
I love a bit of glitter and sparkle for any occasion so I’m loving these glitter filled eggs. The metallic colours look great with the other colours but of course the egg colours are entirely up to you. I ‘m thinking lots of different metallic shades like copper, bronze, gunmetal and pewter.
Instead of an elf on the shelf, make an egg on a shelf! I love how this egg is given so much personality just by adding legs and a body. Any kid would love making this Easter egg craft.
These bouffant hairstyle Easter eggs are just fab. When I saw them, they instantly brought a smile to my lips. For eggs that are a bit different from bunnies and chicks, these are my top pick!
Love these Easter eggs! I’m not sure I have a steady enough hand to paint something as neat and perfect as this but a messier version will be just as fun to make. In addition to the versions above, I think a Queens guard version would look so cool too.
Last but not least are these fun circus eggs. They come with free printables for all the circus bits so you just have to paint the faces and then dress the eggs.
These are my favourite Easter egg decorating ideas – some are more involved than others but they all look really fun to do. Will you be decorating eggs with your kids this year? Which one do you think you’ll make? And don’t forget to check out my super cute free Easter bunny card printable.
