Easter isn’t quite here yet, but it has always been the kind of holiday that we spend plenty of time preparing for. We do this because Easter is such a good opportunity to celebrate so many things at once! Besides the holiday itself, we also love to use Easter as an opportunity to welcome springtime and warmer weather. We also happen to think that Easter decor and colour schemes are absolutely adorable and we love that so many things can be handmade or created at home!
Our absolutely favourite DIY project around Easter time is decorating Easter eggs! You’ve probably tried the classic egg dying technique before, but did you know that there are basically unlimited ways that you can make fun, flashy Easter eggs to decorate your home with? Check these 15 awesome ideas that are fun for kids and adults alike!
1. Glitter eggs
Bright, fun colours are definitely a key part of both springtime and Easter decor, but are you the kind of flashy styled person who likes to take things even further when it comes to anything visual? Then we think perhaps you’ll fall just as hard in love with this egg decorating idea from BHG as we did. The concept is simple: cover the entire egg in coloured glitter for maximum sparkle power!
2. Sprinkle eggs
Do you love the idea of covering your Easter egg in something a little bit unconventional and textured but you’d rather not cover your entire home in glitter trying to make them sparkle just right? Then Studio DIY suggests using sprinkles instead! Yes, you read that correctly; the same colourful sprinkles that you’d spatter across the top of a cupcake make an awesome Easter egg craft.
3. Glow in the dark eggs
Are your kids going through an awesome space or dinosaur phase where they’re obsessed with the idea of other-worldly creatures hatching from eggs rather than cute little animals like baby chicks? Then get them really interested in your Easter crafts by helping them make awesome glow in the dark eggs instead! The process is similar to your classic egg dying technique and Growing a Jeweled Rose is here to guide you through it.
4. Painted eggs
Maybe you’re the kind of patient and artistic person who prefers to paint things by hand and create your own colour combinations and designs with a little more control? Well, no one says you can’t just straight up paint the shells of your Easter eggs, so go ahead and give it a try! We love the pastel colour palette Paper n’ Stitch stuck to while painting theirs.
