simple easter egg decorating

egg painting ideas for easter

As Easter is fast approaching, I thought I’d share some of my favourite Easter egg decorating ideas before it’s too late.  Having said that, many of us do some egg decorating over the Easter weekend, so there’s still time to enjoy these ideas.  And most of them only need eggs, paint and few other bits that you’re likely to have at home already.

All these simple Easter egg decorating ideas will look great on your Easter table, whether you create a display or just use them as part of your place settings.  My favourite is to place a decorated egg on top of each plate or napkin.  Nothing complicated needed and yet it looks so lovely.

If, like me, you find the idea of blowing out your eggs a bit icky, you don’t have to. I simply hard boil the eggs before decorating and they last for a lot longer than they’ll be in use.  Besides, hard boiled eggs are far less fragile than eggs that have been blown out so they’re easier to decorate too.
