Decorating Easter eggs can be as simple as applying a sticker or decoration to elaborate complex designs created by artists.

There are many ways to decorate your Easter Eggs here are a few:

Dying – The classic method
Use Hot water, vinegar and food coloring.

Markers
Almost any kind of market will work.  Quick and easy and less messy than dying. You imagination is the only limit.

Melted Crayons
Place a crayon on the hot eggs and they will start to melt creating unique designs.  Be careful as the eggs will need to be hot.

Metallic
Use metallic spray paint to cover the eggs. You can also use metal leaf or metallic pens. Use the metallic pens in combination with dyed eggs for a fun design.

Natural Food Coloring
Yes, you can decorate your eggs with colors created from various foods and spices.

Tattoo
How about this for a unique twist on egg decorating use stick-on tattoos.  Apply the  stick-n tattoos the same way you would put them on yourself.

Ribbons
Make your Easter Eggs a little fancy with ribbons. Almost any kind of ribbon will work. Apply with a glue gun.

Marbled Eggs
Create surprising designs under the shell of the egg. After the egg has been removed from the hot water lightly tap the shell causing cracks. Now dye the eggs.

Pressed Flowers

Water Color
Water colors are easy to prepare and use. Grab a paintbrush and transform your egg into a work of art.

Silk Tie Dye
These make amazing designs. There are a couple methods. One that uses food coloring and another that you will need 100% silk ties (that you don’t need anymore).

Embroidery Eggs
Use thread and glue to create amazing patterns.

Easter Egg Pinatas
Use brightly colored ruffled paper and fill the eggs with confetti.

Thumb Tack Easter Eggs
Not made with actual eggs. Use foam eggs and decorate them with your choice of brightly colored thumb tacks.

Chalkboard Easter Eggs

Silhouette Easter Eggs
Using silhouettes of your choice use a combination of copy paper, glue sticks, scissors, tissue paper and a paint brush and create stuning silhouette eggs.
