Kitchen Basics 101: 10 Unique Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs

Easter is coming up and one of my favorite memories with my children is dyeing Easter Eggs.  We all know the traditional way of dyeing hard-boiled eggs,with the kits that are sold “everywhere” this time of year. Why not change it up this year and try something new. Heck, my kids are all grown up and I am going to make Ryo dye some eggs with me. Don’t think this is just for the kids! Grown ups can have fun decorating the Easter eggs too!

This week for Kitchen Basics 101 we put together 10 Unique Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs. 

1.  Blackboard Eggs:  Cover the eggs with chalkboard paint, let dry, and decorate the eggs using chalk.

2.  Tattoo Eggs:  I’ve seen this idea a lot this year.  Simply purchase temporary tattoos and adhere to the eggs.

3.  Ombre Eggs:  Simply dye the eggs according to the package directions, only don’t let them stay in the dyed water too long to get the pastel look.  Or you can keep them in extra long to get a really darker, deeper color.

4.  Washi Tape:  Put this fun tape to good use by decorating your eggs with all sorts of shapes, patterns and designs.

5.  Black and White Eggs:  All you need to create some unique decorated eggs is black permanent markers and your imagination.  
6. Glitter Eggs:  Paint your hard-boiled eggs in pretty pastel colors.  Once they are dry, cover the surface with Mod Podge and then sprinkle glitter on top. 
7.  Fabric Trim Eggs:  Dye the eggs according to package directions and then take some leftover material or lace trim and gently glue around the egg creating a decorative border.  
8.  Onion Skin Eggs:  This is a unique process.  There are great directions over on to make these beautiful eggs…

9.  Decoupage Eggs:  Again, using Mod Podge, brush a thin coat on the eggs and then using tissue paper, fabric or pretty napkins create beautiful designs.  
10. Tie Dye Eggs:  Head over to Spoonful for a GREAT tutorial on how to create these amazing eggs.

Now keep in mind, depending on how you choose to decorate your eggs, they might not be suitable for eating. Of course, that is just my opinion. Whatever you do, have fun with it!

    My nephew did eggs last night with his 2 children but same basic plain eggs. This really makes them look so much better and something fun for them. At their age, they’d love the glitter eggs
