Bunny Easter Eggs from Bitte

Turn plain hard-boiled eggs into adorable little bunnies! All you will need is hard-boiled eggs, an egg coloring kit, and black and pink crayons or colored pencils. Dip the bottom half of the egg into the dye to be the clothing. Use the crayons or colored pencils to draw in the details on the clothes and the bunny’s face, ears, eyes, and nose.


Glitter Easter Eggs from The Girl Inspired

Glamorize your eggs by adding some glitter to make them sparkle. You will need glitter, white glue, toothpicks, washi tape, a small bowl, eggs, and a poking device. Set your shimmering Easter eggs out in a bowl and dazzle any guests that visit your apartment.


Watercolor Eggs from Craftberry Bush

Use watercolor paint, a paintbrush, a little creativity, and some talent to decorate your plain white hard-boiled eggs and transform them into something extraordinary! These floral-themed eggs are just one idea.


Calligraphy Eggs from Oh Happy Day

For this fun idea, you will need tattoo paper, scissors, hard-boiled eggs, a small bowl, water, and a paper towel. Download the text template and print it onto your temporary tattoo paper. You will love the adorable eggs with written messages on them.


Marbled Eggs from Alice & Lois

For this fun decorating idea, you will need a plastic container, water, nail polish, rubber gloves, and a stirring stick. Add a few drops of nail polish to the container filled with water and lightly stir to create a marbled look. Dip the egg under the water and swirl. Remove the egg and let it dry. The result should be a cool marbled pattern on the egg.
