Easter Egg Ideas


Do you love dying Easter eggs with your kids? It was always a tradition in our home...until our kids grew up! 😌 Can you hear me sniffling??

So the reality is that I haven't actually dyed an Easter egg in a couple of years! But, that's what makes these DIY eggs even more special...because I can pull them out each year and admire them and enjoy them in my home! Easter eggs as intentional home decor...a fun concept right?

If you click on the title link in each craft, it will take you right to the step by step tutorial. Happy crafting!

Gingham Watercolor Easter Eggs

Gingham never goes out of style! I painted these gingham eggs about 8 years ago, and they still come out each year and seem to work with whatever Spring decor I pick! This year, they were the perfect accompaniment to my Vintage Spring Tablescape and even made their debut as individual plate centerpieces! But they look equally as beautiful in my cottage kitchen with my new floral curtains!

The best part is that these sweet gingham eggs are easy and very quick to make with a DIY watercolor using acrylic paints that you probably already have in your stash!

Chalk Painted Speckled Robins Eggs

These speckled robins eggs are so budget-friendly! I used a little chalk paint to transform some cheap plastic eggs (those ones we all have huge bags of in our attics)! A little black paint makes speckles, and the original tutorial shows you how I hung these on a little DIY Easter tree!

Rae Dunn Inspired Easter Eggs

The beauty of owning a Silhouette or Cricut machine is that you can customize anything! These Rae Dunn inspired eggs cost pennies to make, and I was able to use words that have special meaning to me at this time of the year! Craft eggs are readily found and so easy to customize!

Insider Tip: These eggs would be so cute to use in a child's Easter basket! Use their name and the year on the eggs! Or names of things that they currently love (TV characters, stuffed animal, etc).

Seedlings in Eggshells

Plant grass or flowers in dyed egg shells! I don't have a tutorial for this Easter egg idea, not sure why because I did take pictures of the steps. It's super easy, but if you'd like a step by step tutorial, please let me know in the comments section and I will do my best to post one!

Graphic Sharpie Eggs

I love using permanent markers to decorate items! Check out my blue and white transferware-inspired Christmas ornaments here! I was really hoping to make some of these for Easter too, but haven't had the time yet. The boldness of a simple pattern is so appealing in a basketful of eggs, or display them in a cabinet as I've done above!

  1. I really love all of these ideas. This year I did plant basil seeds in brown eggs for favors but the rest of your ideas are so pretty. Love the watercolor gingham and am super jealous of your hand coordination on the marker ones. I don't know if I could be that neat.
