Creative Ideas for Dyeing, Marbling, Coloring and otherwise Decorating Easter Eggs
Fun ways to dye, paint, decoupage, print, felt, color, marble and crackle your Easter Eggs. Why not have an Easter Egg Decorating Party and make them all?
Decorating Easter Eggs is one of my favorite holiday crafts as you can tell from all of the Easter Egg posts I’ve shared. Here I found for you some really fun Easter Egg decorating ideas for adults as well as for kids.
Although, here in Kentucky it has been a much milder than usual Winter, we are all happy that Spring is finally here once again, right?
And you know what that means, right? That’s right … Easter is just about here again, too. So, get out your Paas egg dyeing kits and tablets, your Mod Podge and glitter and let’s get busy coloring Easter Eggs.
Decorating Easter eggs has always been one of my all-time favorite holiday crafts. I especially have fond memories of dyeing Easter eggs with my kids.
We always made a big craft day of it with the various dye kits and also marble dyeing with onion skins (the way my German Grandmother taught me!)
But, thankfully we are not limited to using just the old dye tabs anymore. Now, there are now so, so many other creative and fun ways to decorate your Easter Eggs!
You can print on them with silk ties, marble them, decoupage them, tattoo them and even dye the eggs with shaving cream. What? Shaving cream? Yes!
A big Thank You to the creative craft bloggers for allowing me to share their fun Easter Egg ideas.

How do you prepare eggs for decorating?
To prepare real eggs, you will need to boil them before decorating:
Place them in a pot with cold water. Bring to a boil and then turn the stove down to an easy simmer for about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and allow the eggs to cool completely.
If you are planning to dye your eggs with natural plant materials, you will normally start with raw eggs and then boil them with the dye.
