Easter isn’t quite here yet, but it has always been the kind of holiday that we spend plenty of time preparing for. We do this because Easter is such a good opportunity to celebrate so many things at once! Besides the holiday itself, we also love to use Easter as an opportunity to welcome springtime and warmer weather. We also happen to think that Easter decor and colour schemes are absolutely adorable and we love that so many things can be handmade or created at home!
Our absolutely favourite DIY project around Easter time is decorating Easter eggs! You’ve probably tried the classic egg dying technique before, but did you know that there are basically unlimited ways that you can make fun, flashy Easter eggs to decorate your home with? Check these 15 awesome ideas that are fun for kids and adults alike!

2. Sprinkle eggs
Do you love the idea of covering your Easter egg in something a little bit unconventional and textured but you’d rather not cover your entire home in glitter trying to make them sparkle just right? Then
3. Glow in the dark eggs
Are your kids going through an awesome space or dinosaur phase where they’re obsessed with the idea of other-worldly creatures hatching from eggs rather than cute little animals like baby chicks? Then get them really interested in your Easter crafts by helping them make awesome glow in the dark eggs instead! The process is similar to your classic egg dying technique and
4. Painted eggs
Maybe you’re the kind of patient and artistic person who prefers to paint things by hand and create your own colour combinations and designs with a little more control? Well, no one says you can’t just straight up paint the shells of your Easter eggs, so go ahead and give it a try! We love the pastel colour palette
5. Gold foil silhouette egg
Have you always been a big fan of things that look like liquid cold? If you ask us, the more metallic, the better! It can be hard to get that true gold look with things like gold paint because they often dry more matte than you’d like to see. That’s why
6. Intricate black and white eggs
Have you ever used the wax crayon method for drawing sayings and designs on your Easter eggs before you due them? That’s kind of a similar process to how these gorgeously and intricately patterned black and white eggs featured on
7. Washi tape eggs
Are you looking for a way to decorate eggs with your family that’s not only quick and easy but also close to mess free? Then put down the dyes and paints for now and instead grab some brightly coloured or patterned washi tape and some scissors!
8. Ombre dyed eggs
Perhaps you’d actually like to use the classic Easter egg dying method but you’re just looking for a colour combination or design to do that’s a little more stylish or unconventional than what you’ve done in previous years? Then try playing with the intensity of your dye to get lighter and darker tones of the same shade! We love this pink ombre created by

11. Botanical stencil eggs
Perhaps the idea that’s stuck out to you the most so far is the stenciling idea but lace is a little too fancy for your tastes? Try creating a stencil around a shape instead! We’re absolutely in love with the way this
12. Geometric design eggs
We already talked about a few different methods for creating different lined and geometric shaped designs on the shells of your Easter eggs, but this one might be the most fun. Use strips of tape in different thicknesses to mark off certain woven patterns across your egg and then dip the egg into different coloured dyes. Once the egg is dry, peel the tape off and check out the awesome stripes you’ve created! See the technique in more detail on
13. Subway art eggs
Have you every seen the creative fonts and lettering that advertisements, posters, and subway signs use when you take your city’s train? Well,

Perhaps you’ve already dyed your eggs but now you’ve decided that they still need a little something to make them even fancier than they already are? Then grab some cute spring flowers and some ribbons in different colours and styles and dress your eggs up!
