I have put together a list of the best and most stunning DIY Easter egg decorating ideas!


March 1st!

I can hardly believe that it’s already March and that Easter will be here at the end of the month!

Every year my youngest gets so excited about Easter. He loves to decorate Easter eggs, and so far we have tried a few different methods of dyeing them, and last year we even tried speckling. This year he is already asking what we are going to make, so I’ve been looking for some new creative ideas to try out. I love that he is into doing crafts with Mom, so I want find something that is both beautiful and fun and easy for him to be involved in.

I’ve found a few favourite ideas that I can’t wait to try and today I’ve gathered together over 30 stunning Easter Egg decorating ideas that I think you’ll love!

It’s always good to start with the basics: how to best dye your eggs! So the first two DIY tutorials are a great place to begin…

Over the past couple of years, I’ve shared a few different variations on Easter egg decorating myself. I shared these super quick & easy DIY speckled Easter Eggs…made with ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right now!

I used a similar technique last year to create this DIY speckled Easter Egg garland…

And always a classic, I also shared these pretty and textural DIY yarn wrapped Easter Eggs

Well, what style do you think you’ll try this year?

I really want to try the gold leaf ones, but I love the indigo dyed eggs as well as the moss covered eggs. Hmmm.. I might have to try a few of them!

Just note: eggs that have been decorated and/treated as a craft are likely not food safe, as are eggs that have been boiled but left out to display.

  1. Hello Krista,
    I’m one of your subscribers, and I just love every time I open an email from you.
    Because I love your little blue floral print you use at the end of your emails! Is it a print that is downloadable, because I would love to frame it for my bedroom or dining room.
    Thank you.

    P.S. Thank you for all of your emails!

    1. Hi Susie,
      I have been using that graphic a lot lately on my printables. The free calendar for subscribers it! Did you get yours? I also just made a spring printable that you may like and I’ll be sharing it soon. I like your idea, though. Perhaps I’ll do a series of floral printables for spring and use those graphics! I will let you know once I share those!

  3. Many cool ideas BUT please be aware that eggs are porous and anything you put on it will be absorbed past the shell. Keep this in mind if you plant to eat the eggs [especially feeding to kids whose bodies and organs are still maturing] – paint, nail polish, permanent markers, certain dyes [even food coloring!!], and glues are toxic.

    1. Hi Dodie – definitely. Good point. I actually often use fake eggs for my easter eggs, that way they will never break or spoil. If you are keeping eggs out of the fridge after they have been boiled in order to display them they also won’t be suitable to eat. I would imagine each of these tutorials shares their own tips about that, but I could add it in as a warning:)
