8 Fun and Easy Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

To preserve Easter eggs for years? Before decorating, blow up each egg's inside and hand-paint using acrylic colors. Paint polka dots, swirls, or other motifs on painted eggs using glue with a liner brush after drying.

Give simple eggs a colorful, multicolored touch by applying a marbleized texture. All you have to do to give your eggs a speckled, unexpected appearance is mix some olive oil into the coloring mixture.

Marbleized Eggs

Mirror balls, disco balls, or whatever you call them, are popular. Mirror-covered Easter eggs for that disco-ball-themed basket may be available, but you can build your own.

Create gorgeous bunnies, chicks, lambs, and birds from colorful Easter eggs with talented kids. Download and print patterned paper supports and polka-dotted paper for kids to cut out springtime animal ears, beaks, feathers, whiskers, etc.

Thread-Wrapped Eggs

Warm irons melt and fuse Perler beads. Easter egg decoration is best done using adhesive. Use a low-setting hot-glue gun to avoid melting the plastic egg or beads. Make rainbow and floral patterns.
