We love setting aside a quiet afternoon to play with different designs and decorate the day away in pure craft bliss. Especially if we get to share these awesome Easter egg decorating ideas with you!
It's hard not to fall in love with your Easter eggs once you are finished decorating them. We all do it, leave the room for a while and come back to check on how pretty they are again and again (all day long!). We did that with the Easter egg tutorial we did for naturally dying the eggs with beets and drawing roses on them. They turned out so gorgeous! If you want to check out those Easter eggs for ideas, you can read that post here.
There's something extremely satisfying about decorating Easter eggs, and this is a craft that we look forward to all year. We've hatched up some great Easter egg decorating finds to help put a fun and fresh spin on your Easter egg decorating this year! Have fun, let your imagination run wild, and be sure to check out some of our tutorials.
Easter Egg Decorating idea #1: Wink of Stella Brush Markers for glitter!
Try adding some glitter and shimmer to your Easter eggs with these Japanese made Wink Of Stella glimmer brush pens. This set comes in 10 shades that will take your decorating to the next level!
Easter Egg Decorating idea #2: Alcohol Inks
The only thing stopping you here is your own imagination! These dye-based, multi-surface inks are acid-free, permanent and are quick drying, which would make them perfect for use in decorating your Easter eggs. Alcohol inks create a vibrant, polished effect.
There are some things to remember when using alcohol inks though: like that they are full pigment dyes so a little goes a long way. Also, be sure to use them with gloves to avoid staining. You will also need blending solution or regular isopropyl alcohol that you can pick up at your local drug store. Check out some tutorials on YouTube on how to use alcohol inks if you have never tried them before.
Easter Egg Decorating idea #3: A Natural Egg Dye kit
A great option for those who want to use natural dyes for your Easter egg decorating ideas, but don't want to make your own from scratch this year. This natural egg dye kit is made with fruits, herbs, and veggies. It's 100% safe and non-toxic. Ingredients include pure, natural fruit & vegetable extracts (spinach, purple carrots, turmeric, beets, red cabbage, and blueberries).
The excellent reviews continue to pile up for these plant-based dyes for Easter eggs. Be sure to grab your pack before they sell out this year!
Easter Egg Decorating idea #4: Temporary Tattoo Paper
Create fun and unique designs by simply printing out your favorite pictures on temporary tattoo paper!! You can literally print out whatever you would like to embellish your Easter eggs. Have the kids design their own Easter egg tattoos, scan them and print them! Oh wow, the ideas are endless with this one.
There are tons of Etsy sellers that sell Easter egg design ideas specifically for decorating eggs too, so be sure to head over there to search out some Easter-specific ones if that is the look you are going for! You could also print out small words, quotes or names as well! How fun!!
Easter Egg Decorating idea #5: Eggmazing!
We first saw this product on Shark Tank and couldn't wait to share it as an Easter egg decorating idea! Such a cool and simple way to get your lines perfect. This set comes with its own markers, but just think of the possibilities! I can totally see a basket of these in a color theme like all shades of purple with some yellow Easter egg grass in a basket on the table...

Easter Egg Decorating idea #7: Krylon Leafing Pen
This leafing pen is one of our favorite pens, and we think it would accent any Easter egg beautifully. We chose the copper pen in this Easter egg idea post, but we think that any Krylon leafing pen would look absolutely gorgeous depending on the look you are trying to achieve. We did an unboxing and review of the gold Krylon Leafing Pen which you can watch right here to see how it looks!
The pigment of this rich and shiny copper pen looks great on top of darker colors and even on its own for creative doodles. We highly recommend a leafing pen to accent your Easter egg designs!!

The delicate little teacups are so cute! I would totally get a natural straw basket and mix these Easter eggs in with a few real teacups and set it on my kitchen table!!
These teacup stickers also easily peel right off of the backing and are beautifully die cut.
