I love Easter! Well, mostly I love finding new and creative ways to decorate the eggs. Now, more than ever, eggs have moved from the 1 day yard hunt to a seasonal decor item that can hang around for a good month, and that is fine by me. So, here are several great Easter egg decorating ideas that are favorites of mine.
Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
High gloss painted eggs are great. This can be applied to the plastic eggs and used as interior decor. I suppose you could also do this to an actual egg for the easter egg hunt, but I find it to be a bit much for something that can’t be saved. This really makes them look like ceramic or glazed porcelain. Ceramic eggs can be purchased and then decorated, or just paint the plastic eggs with a high gloss plastic paint.
I also like chalk painted eggs. This is fun for the kids to draw their own design own, or use it as a place setting.
Remember back during Valentines, how I said that glass containers can be easily changed out for every season or holiday, to create simple and easy decor? Well, here we have another easy holiday decor. I like to use egg shaped marsh mellows, egg shaped sidewalk chalk, candy, etc. It is cheap and super cute.
If you have never tried crackle painted eggs, this is a must do. Again, this is not really for real eggs, but use it on those intended to keep items.
Glitter is also a very easy (and really fun for the kiddos) project. In fact, if you want home decor but don’t have the time to do it yourself, just give the kids some glue and glitter and let them go to town.
Eggs can add an elegant style to a mantle. I really like this idea. The egg holders can be decorated in addition to the eggs. If you don’t want to have permanent paint on your egg holder, some temporary stickers work nicely.
Of all the easter egg decorating ideas, I believe this one is my favorite. Of course, I also love crocheting. So, I may be a bit biased, but I just think these are adorable.
Although this is has been around for ages, don’t forget the giant shiny eggs for the kids. For some reason, it is always extra special if you are the one to find the “big” egg.
And I couldn’t pass this little egg up. Can you see it hiding in the plants? Notice the fearful face that the eggs has?
Here is another one with a happier outlook (just so you can see these up close). These can be done with stick on faces, or painted if you have that kind of talent.
Don’t forget the tablescapes. Consider a covered chocolate egg on a nest. It is decor and dessert all in one.
And if you want to go all out, this table has everything – eggs tucked into napkins, nesting birds on the plates, colorful champagne flutes, and strategically placed butterflies.
However you decide to decorate those eggs, I would love to see your best ideas. Make a suggestion below, or feel free to email some images to me. Who knows? Maybe, you will se them posted here. :-)
