Best Supplies for Easter Egg Design 

Craft Eggs

I prefer to use craft eggs instead of real eggs because then I can enjoy my decorated eggs year after year. You never have to worry about them cracking or going bad. You can use white plastic and ceramic eggs, or for a more natural look try kraft paper mache or wooden eggs:


Egg Coloring Supplies

Many of the ideas in this guide go beyond basic egg dyeing, but it is always good to have some egg dye on hand. It can make a pretty colored base for extra decorations.


Cool Easter Egg Hacks

Plain Easter egg dye is boring compared to these Easter egg design hacks that use shaving cream, nail polish, oil and brush pens! If you have never tried one of these hacks they are worth a shot, and kids will love them too.

Flower Easter Egg Designs

I love the combination of Easter eggs and flowers. It is the perfect look for spring. You can glue on small artificial flowers, add flower stickers or floral lace to your eggs, or even use a paper punch to cut out small flowers:

Easter Eggs Decorated with Stickers and Tape

Possibly one of the easiest ways to decorate Easter eggs is with stickers! You can customize eggs by adding initials or or words with small letter stickers. You can use colorful dot stickers from the office supply store. Try wrapping eggs with thin washi tape. Get creative with whatever you have on hand! Stickers are an especially easy (and mess free) way for kids to decorate eggs.
