30+ Easy Easter Egg Decorating Ideas – Creative Designs for Easter Eggs

These 5 Easy DIY Easter Egg Decorating Ideas Are SO Creative

Con Poulos

What's Easter without some egg decorating? This creative tradition is fun at any age, brings family together, and gives you something to do if you're stuck inside due to social distancing.

No matter your technique, there are so many fun ways to make your Easter eggs stand out from the rest. And the best part of all? They're usually both cheap, and easy.

From drawing on a plain white egg in puff paint, to using a white crayon to create unique patterns, to creating masterpieces with twine and foil, these creations will be egg-actly what you're looking for.

And if you're trying to reserve the eggs for eating this year, some of these decorating ideas can be done on plastic eggs. (Bonus: you can reuse them for many Easters to come.)

So try one or all of the easy egg decorating ideas that are sure to get the Instagram s rolling.

Surprise Egg

Create an oversized egg with a twist! Open an egg box, paint it white, then let dry. Starting at the top of one egg half, apply washi tape lengthwise one row at a time, trimming at the ends. Repeat this on other half until it’s covered, then fill with toys ( this cuddly bunny!) or candy, close, and tie with a ribbon.

3 of 39

Dipped Herb Silhouettes

Gather herbs sage, thyme, and parsley and snip them into small sprigs. Lightly paint the backs of herbs with egg white and let set 10 minutes. While herbs dry, cut a nylon stocking into 5'' tubes.

Place a prepared herb onto an egg and carefully tie the nylon around both ends so the herb stays put. Submerge egg in dye. Remove and blot dry with paper towels before removing nylon, then slowly peel off herb.

Sparkling Easter Designs

Lovely Unicorn: Paint a wooden egg white; let dry. Draw on face. Cut a mane from faux-fur trim, color in an egg dye bath, and attach (once dry) with fabric glue. Use templates to make felt ears and a gold paper horn; assemble and glue to egg. Wrap a 3 x 1/8-in. strip of gold paper around horn; secure with glue. Glue star confetti to cheek and hair.

Shiny Silhouette: Use the templates to carefully cut a chick or bunny from a foil candy wrapper. Adhere to dyed egg with Mod Podge. Use a damp cotton swab to gently wipe clean the foil shape; let dry.

Dazzling Glitter Egg: Try this trick on basic plastic eggs: Lightly sand the outside, brush on glue, cover in glitter, and let dry.

5 of 39

Twine-Wrapped Eggs

How cool is this textured twine-wrapped Easter egg idea? Adhere twine to one end of a ceramic egg with a glue stick, then apply glue and tightly wind the twine, working in sections, until you've completely covered the surface.

6 of 39

Color Easter Characters

Best dressed: Draw a face and hair on a ceramic egg. Wrap the bottom third of egg in thick yarn (tip: work from the middle down) and secure by brushing on white craft glue in sections. Create details collars, bows, and buttons with felt and beads.

Dashing Design Egg: Follow tradition and dye your eggs first. Once dry, draw a series of short lines with a white paint marker.

Fuzzy Chick: Wrap a ceramic or wooden egg in yarn (tip: start at the top and work down) and secure by brushing on white craft glue in sections as you work. Use templates to make felt wings, feet, beak, and hair, and attach with glue. Glue on small black-bead eyes.

7 of 39

Floral Easter Eggs

A dyed egg can be a blank canvas for a watercolor garden. Paint small X's with dots in the centers.

8 of 39

Whimsical Bunny

Decorate a painted egg with soft, furry ears and a floral crown. Paint a wooden egg, let dry, then add a spotted belly with white paint. Draw on a face. Use template to make ears from felt and faux-fur trim. Sandwich wire between ear pieces, then bend back the bottom 1/4 in. and use to glue in place. Glue small faux flowers around ears.

9 of 39

Gold Leaf Eggs

To get this gorgeous gilded look, start with dyed Easter eggs. Then, using a foam brush, add splotches of glue from the Mona Lisa Metal Leaf Starter Kit. Let dry according to package instructions (the glue gets tacky when it dries). Apply the gold leaf from the kit to the sticky areas, smooth with your fingers, and use a stiff-bristled brush to sweep away any excess gold leaf.

10 of 39

Speckled Eggs

Use a toothbrush to flick watered-down acrylic paint across (dry) spray-painted plastic eggs.

11 of 39

Animal Critters

Say hello to spring with these farm friends! Dye hardboiled eggs green, pink, orange, and yellow. Print templates of the animals’ features. Print out on corresponding colored paper and cut. Attach features using craft glue.

For bunny ears, chick wings, and frog eyes and legs: fold back 1/8'' at base to glue to egg. Let dry and adjust as needed.

For the lamb: unravel 3 cotton balls. Brush egg with glue, avoiding the narrow top, which will be the face. Smooth cotton to cover egg. Once dry, add pom-poms for feet and tail.Draw faces with a fine point permanent marker.

Watercolor Easter Egg Idea

Transforming images into adhesive decals for your Easter eggs is easier than it sounds. Simply download our watercolor images template and print onto Grafix Rub-Onz Transfer Film (you may need to select the photo paper setting on your printer). Rub with your fingers or the flat end of a wine cork to apply to eggs.

14 of 39

Easter Egg Characters

Who says all your Easter eggs have to look the same? Adhere faux flower petals, buds, and leaves to colored eggs using a hot glue gun (or paint ceramic eggs you can re-use each spring!).

We used Gerbera daisies for bunny ears, hydrangeas for bird feathers, baby's breath for a lamb's coat, a lily or rose for butterfly wings, and green leaves for a carrot top.

Draw faces with a marker for the cutest crew around.

These 5 Easy DIY Easter Egg Decorating Ideas Are SO Creative

Ask most kids their favorite holiday, and they’ll probably respond with “Christmas,” or “my birthday” (in the cast of my youngest, who thinks her birthday is a holiday). But with our kids, it has always been “Easter.” They love painting Easter eggs. I hear about it for weeks leading up to the day we all sit down to do it.

Since they love Easter so much, I’ve been looking for ways to expand our Easter traditions. So we’ve been adding on new activities these 20 fun family Easter traditions, and trying out creative crafts turning an old sock into an Easter bunny.

Recently, I thought it would be cool if we tried out some new ways to decorate eggs. Who says we should just paint them every year? While that’s always fun, there are a lot of ways to spruce up eggs for Easter. In the video below, I share 5 fast, easy, and creative Easter egg decorating crafts which are great for kids and adults!

Ice Cream Cone Egg


Egg Hot glue and glue gun Cotton Pipe cleaner Markers or pens in different colors

Brown paper


1. Start by hot gluing a small fluff of cotton to the top of an egg.

2. Wrap some pipe cleaner in a color of your choice around the cotton. Yellow is a good option. You can think of this as whipped cream with a bit of caramel drizzled on top.

3. With your markers or pens, draw “sprinkles” all over the egg in a few different colors.

4. Get some brown construction paper and wrap it into a cone shape. Put the egg on top of it. Alternately, if you actually have ice cream cones on hand, you could just use those.

Bird Egg

1. Begin by using hot glue to attach the googly eyes to the egg. Cut the construction paper into a beak shape and attach that as well.

2. Next, attach some feathers to the back of the egg to create a large tail.

3. Next, add a bow to the top of the egg as an embellishment. Set the egg inside a cute ornamental cup, and maybe add another bow or any other decorations you would .

Bunny Egg


Egg Felt Pen Cup

Hot glue and glue gun


1. Cut the felt into the shape of two bunny ears.

2. Using the hot glue gun, attach the ears to the egg.

3. Use the pen to draw on a bunny face.

Set the bunny egg inside a cup and put it on display.

Egg with Straw Hair


Egg Hot glue and glue gun Pen Bow Straw

Googly eyes


1. Use hot glue to attach googly eyes to the egg.

2. Hot glue some straw to the top of the egg to serve as “hair.”

3. Glue a bow on top.

4. Use a pen to draw on eyebrows, a mouth, and freckles. Put the egg in a cup to display.

Surprised Egg


Egg Googly eyes Hot glue and glue gun Bow



1. With the hot glue gun, attach the googly eyes to the egg.

2. Use a pen to draw a surprised mouth on the egg and any other facial features you want.

3. Set the egg in a cup to display, and add a cute bow if you want.

See—there are a lot of ways you can decorate Easter eggs that go beyond just painting them. I hope that you enjoy doing these crafts with your kids!

60 Best Easter Egg Designs – Easy DIY Ideas for Easter Egg Decorating

These 5 Easy DIY Easter Egg Decorating Ideas Are SO Creative

1 of 60

Pressed Flower Easter Eggs

Bring the outside in with these nature-inspired beauties. Once you have a bounty of dried and pressed flowers, buds, and leaves, adhere them to the egg's surface with a flat paint brush and glossy Mod Podge. Paint thin layers of Mod Podge on top of the flowers or leaves, and let dry completely.

2 of 60

Stamped Easter Eggs

Go beyond a basic dye job with the help of a chalk stamp pad. For an intricate design, press a small stamp into the pad and place evenly on to the egg’s surface, and repeat as necessary. When you are happy with your design, set the ink by turning your hair dryer on the lowest setting and blowing dry.


3 of 60

Vegetable Easter Eggs

While these adorable eggs aren't edible, they look just as beautiful (if not, more) than the real thing.

Carrot: Cut 2 to 3″ strips of green tissue paper and twist together at one end. Attach “stem” with hot glue to the top of an orange egg. Using a permanent marker, add lines to mimic the texture of a natural carrot.

Strawberry: Dye an egg deep red-pink and let dry. Use a permanent marker to draw “seeds” all over the egg. Cut 1” strips of green crepe paper and attach to the top of the egg with glue. Finish it off by gluing a crepe paper stem.

Pea Pod: Dye 3 eggs light green and let dry. Cut a rectangle of light green crepe paper about 7″ x 10″ (depending on the size of your eggs). Glue a row of eggs in the center of the crepe paper.

Wrap the long sides of the paper around the eggs, twist at either end, and glue. Cut 5 petal shapes green crepe paper, about 3″ in length. Twist the petals together at one end and glue.

Fan out the leaves to create a cap for the pea pod and glue.

4 of 60

Marbled Easter Eggs

Not a fan of classic dye jobs? Give it a marbleized effect by rolling eggs in a dye and oil mixture.

Start by adding a tablespoon of vegetable oil to a bowl of dye, and stirring with a craft stick or a straw to separate oil bubbles. Gently roll eggs into the bowl for a few seconds.

Pat the excess dye and oil with a paper towel and set on a cooling rack to dry. Once completely dry, use a dry cloth to wipe away any excess oil residue.

5 of 60

Sugared Easter Eggs

Keep things sugary-sweet by adding these “sugar-covered” eggs to your Easter spread. To make, paint one half of an egg with craft glue. Sprinkle with clear iridescent glitter, let dry, and repeat on the other side.


6 of 60

Polka-Dot Easter Eggs

Go for a 3D effect by dabbing a dyed (or plain!) egg with puff paint. Don't get ahead of yourself: Do one side at a time, allowing each time to dry completely before moving on.


7 of 60

Paper Punch Easter Eggs

If you're not as artistically inclined, use craft punches to cut shapes from different colored paper. Fold the shapes down the middle and attach to solid-colored eggs with craft glue.


8 of 60

Chick Easter Eggs

Add even more chicks to your Easter table with these adorable dyed eggs. To make, dip the front of an egg length-wise in yellow dye. Once dry, draw face and body features with a fine-point permanent marker.
