Beautiful Easter Eggs to Inspire You
1. Floral Easter Eggs
Just when I thought I had run out of new ways to decorate Easter eggs, I challenged myself to get crafty and come up with fresh creative ideas. I turned to silk flowers and fabric tape to decorate these floral-inspired Easter eggs.
I think the results are stunning. Watch this video to see how this craft came together:
2. Chalk Paint Speckled Eggs
Dig into your craft stash for your favorite hues of chalk paint to make these Easter eggs. I opted for pretty pastels in yellow, blue, and teal. Then grab some metallic paint to add the speckles. I’ve also seen speckles in black or dark gray. The possibilities are just about endless.
3. Music Note Easter Eggs
Grab the Mod Podge for this next craft. Cut old sheet music – or music patterned scrapbook paper – into strips before layering them onto plastic eggs with Mod Podge. The craft can get a bit messy, but the end result is well worth it. Music Note Easter Eggs from The Crazy Craft Lady.
4. Decorate with Metal Leaf
If you love using the traditional method of dip-dying eggs, but you’re looking to add a little something “extra” – this tutorial is for you! Take a regular dyed egg, and add a bit of foil leaf to add a touch of glam. Aren’t these Metal Leaf Easter Eggs from A Crafted Passion just lovely?
These French Script Easter Eggs from Setting For Four, use the same decoupage technique as the music note Easter eggs above. Just swap out sheet music paper for the French script printable, and you’re in business.
6. Decorative Eggs with Paint and Ribbon
Who says you can’t decorate brown eggs? The DIY Dreamer decorated brown eggs with paint and ribbon – all in a variety of pretty ways.
I love all the different patterns she used! You can get creative with a white paint pen and just let your imagination run wild. And if you only have white eggs, feel free to use a different color of paint.
7. Watercolor Floral Eggs
The creative blogger behind Dream a Little Bigger is a truly talented watercolor artist. Although, these eggs technically aren’t a watercolor craft at all. They’re decorated with food coloring and Sharpie marker.
If you’re artistically inclined, you’ve got to try your hand a painted watercolor Easter eggs.
8. Pottery Barn Inspired Glitter Easter Eggs
I love these glitter Easter eggs from The Home I create, especially the combination and variety of metallic tones. And with a supply list that involves styrofoam eggs, Mod Podge, and glitter – this is a quick and easy craft to whip up before Easter.
9. DIY Easter Egg Temporary Tattoos
Ok, first things first. Did you know that temporary tattoo paper is a thing? Yep! You can print any image you like onto this specialty paper to make your own custom tattoos. That’s exactly what House of Hawthornes did, but instead of tattooing her skin she tattooed Easter eggs instead. Brilliant!
And if you don’t want to mess with printing your own tattoo paper, get the kids involved. Grab a pack of temporary tattoo sheets and let the kiddos go to town decorating their eggs.
10. Silk Dyed Easter Eggs
This technique is an oldie but a goodie. Grab some silk fabric to dye eggs.
This tutorial from Crafty Morning uses old ties and vinegar, but any type of 100% silk fabric will do. The patterns are so unique and lovely.
11. DIY Confetti Easter Eggs
How cheerful are these beauties? And this is definitely a craft project that’s in my wheelhouse. There’s no special technique or skill required. Just coat an egg with Mod Podge, and toss around some confetti. Anyone can do that!

12. Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs
When I think of spring and Easter, everything pastel and botanical comes to mind. These naturally dyed eggs from The Kitchen McCabe go in the complete opposite direction.
Grab kitchen staples like blueberries, coffee, grape juice, and red cabbage. Or get fancy with hibiscus flowers. The end result: unexpectedly beautiful Easter eggs in dark and moody tones.
13. Mod Podge Napkin Easter Eggs
You can’t talk about decoupage crafts without talking about paper napkins. These Mod Podge paper napkin Easter eggs from Alice & Lois are stunning! Grab paper napkins in any color and pattern you like, but I’m especially loving this floral pastern for spring.
14. Calligraphy Eggs
Oh how I wish I had the calligraphy skills to decorate these calligraphy script eggs. Luckily, the makers over at Oh Happy Day are here to save the day on this craft. They’ve whipped up a handy template that you can easily print and transfer to the eggs.
15. Tropical Leaf Eggs
I don’t typically think of anything tropical at Easter time, but these DIY Tropical Leaf Eggs have me re-evaluating that position. This technique uses a printer an white tissue paper, but it can easily be replicated with any image you like.
Grab a sharpie marker and some white eggs, and let your imagination run wild. For these eggs, I wrote the words to a song using my *very best* cursive handwriting. Feel free to get creative with block letters or designs and patterns.
