One of my favorite things to do in spring is decorate Easter eggs! Here are 13 unique and fun ideas for decorating eggs, real or fake.
I love decorating Easter eggs! It’s one of the first Easter crafts you typically do as a kid, so I think that’s why I love it – good childhood memories. Who doesn’t remember the little PAAS kits with the tablets you put in water?
I’ve matured a bit since then (well, I guess that’s up for debate) and so have my crafting tastes. I want to try something a little bit more than the colored tablets with my Easter eggs. I’ve got 13 great ways to decorate Easter eggs in the collection below.
If you are looking for something different this year, you’ll love these ideas. From Mod Podge to Sharpies, there are so many ways to decorate eggs! Just scroll down to see the ideas.

- In a small deep cup or bowl add enough water to cover an egg.
- Add a few drops of your favorite nail polish color.
- Dip the egg just enough to cover the egg.
- Let the eggs dry on a plastic plate. To speed up the process: freeze the eggs until the nail polish is dry.
You can get temporary tattoos from the dollar store – and then you have instant egg decor.
