Egg Decorations

5 Easy Decorative Eggs

Use our crafty instructions to put a spin on traditional dyed eggs.

Tip: Substitute the iconic hard-boiled egg with wooden craft eggs (found at your local craft store) to keep your projects for years to come.

1. Washi Tape

Similar to masking tape, just stronger and prettier, washi tape makes eggs instantly beautiful. Wrap it around natural brown eggs or wooden craft ones. Get creative and cut it into shapes (like pennants or stars) before attaching it to your eggs.

2. Hot-glued Buttons

For crafty, colorful decorations in a snap, hot-glue small buttons to your eggs. Cover the eggs completely or create festive shapes like flowers — drawing in stems with permanent markers.

Cut bitty ears, wings, noses and tails out of craft paper or foam then hot-glue them to dyed eggs and draw on other features. Add cotton balls for fluffy animals!

4. Watercolor  

Brush one side of the egg with watercolor paint or dab it on with a sponge. Allow it to dry, flip it over and repeat on the other side. The possibilities are endless.

5. Natural Look

Hand brush big dots onto dyed or brown eggs with dark brown paint for a natural effect. Create smaller specks by dipping a toothpick in paint and dotting it on.
