Up Your DIY Easter Egg Game

Spring is just around the corner, and while we’ve been busy trying various methods of training our new puppy not to bark so much, it’s time to get back to writing. As we all know, with Spring comes Easter. As the season approaches, it’s natural to turn thoughts to decorations as well as the traditional Easter Egg Hunt. You may have fond memories of children joyously searching for brightly colored eggs while adults watch or help. 

Are you wondering how to recreate those fun Easter memories? You could just purchase plastic eggs or commercially produced egg dyes. Those seem a little impersonal and perhaps just a little boring, though. Instead, up to your DIY Easter egg game with creative ideas that add personality to your eggs.

Make Your Own Dyes

There are a variety of egg dyes available for purchase. Most of them involve dissolving a tablet in vinegar and adding water. This year, why not make your own dyes? Many fruits, vegetables, and other natural elements can be used to create your own environmentally safe dyes. The colors from homemade dyes are not exactly the same as the ones from the dissolvable tablets. They may be more muted or variegated. 

Tie-Dyed Eggs

Take a step beyond simple dyed eggs by tie-dying them. Before dipping your eggs into your chosen dye, use rubber bands or painter’s tape to mark areas of the egg that should not receive the dye. Dip your eggs and allow them to dry. Then, remove the rubber bands or tape. Place tape or rubber bands over the dyed areas and re-dip the eggs in a new color. Repeat this process as often as you’d like to achieve the look you want. 

Bedazzled Eggs

Nothing catches the eye quite like glitter or jewels. Take plain dyed eggs to the next level with simple bedazzlement. Imagine eggs that sparkle brilliantly in the sunlight. These are simple to create, but they have a powerful wow factor. For this technique, you start by dying the eggs as you normally would. Allow your eggs to dry thoroughly. Then, use glue to make patterns, polka dots, or any other artistic creation. Sprinkle glitter or place jewel pieces on the glue. Allow the eggs to dry thoroughly once again. 

Eggstraordinary Canvas

You’ve boiled a couple of dozen eggs, but now you don’t know how to decorate them. Why not let guests decorate their own? Permanent markers make wonderful decorating tools for the white surface of the eggs. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and with this decorating option, people can create any number of artistic masterpieces. Each egg provides a blank canvas, and all that is left to do is draw or color on those canvases.

Egg Creatures

What could be more fun than making little creatures from your eggs? Rabbits, cats, chickens, or even unicorns can be created with a little imagination. These are only a few of the ideas for eggs turned animals. These can be created by painting the egg to resemble the animal, by using fabric or paper to create ears, noses, and tails, or by combining the methods. You can even glue googly eyes on them for a fun touch. 

Metallically Elegant

Whimsically fun designs are not for everyone. Sometimes, you want a more elegant touch to your Easter festivities. When that is the case, you might want to opt for a metallic look. Metallic paint pens are an ideal way to create this look. Alternatively, you can glue metallic foil to the surface of your eggs for a similar look. 

Eggs and Easter seem to be perfectly matched. Decorating eggs is a fun way to celebrate the holiday. Whether you use boiled eggs or paintable wooden ones, have fun being creative with your Easter eggs.
