Fun & Easy Easter Egg Decorating

Updated: Mar 29


Beautiful colored eggs. Cool designs

One of my favorite childhood memories is going to our local nursing home and participating in their annual Easter egg hunt. I remember being so nervously excited! There were a lot of kids and just as many eggs, but there was a prized egg—the “golden egg.”


Whichever “lucky” kid found that egg walked home with an awesome prize! I never did find that egg, unfortunately. Well, one time I did, but a boy in my class spotted it at the same time I did. He climbed the tree faster, so he got the coveted egg. I was super annoyed. Everyone else left with pale, boiled eggs and the 67 cents you got when you turned in your eggs to see how much money they were “worth.” But at least we are all left with memories that will last a lifetime!

Along with the annual Easter egg hunt, my family always colored eggs growing up and we've continued to carry on the tradition with our kids. Today, there are so many creative ways to dye eggs. You can go as easy or as difficult as you want. I’m a “less is more” type of gal though. Haha! So, I’ve taken a “fancy” looking way and made it super simple for you. Let me know if you try it!


Tip: Did you know you can also color brown eggs? I even color our green eggs! They take on jewel tones, which is what you see in the picture above!

What You Will Need:

  • Boiled eggs

  • Coloring cups (I bought the store-bought ones with the color already in)

  • Small leaves or herbs

  • Scissors

  • Pantyhose

  • Small rubber bands


How to Make Fun & Easy Easter Eggs


Supplies for coloring eggs

Step 1: Collect all your supplies. Most of these items can be found at your local grocery store! For coloring cups, I used store-bought ones from a kit, but you can get creative with food coloring or even colorful foods to dye your eggs!


Step 1 for coloring eggs

Step 2: Carefully clip a couple of the herbs. I laid one herb over the egg and got it slightly wet. I noticed that if I did this, it would stick to the egg better when I wrapped the pantyhose around it. When you get the pantyhose wrapped around the egg, secure it with a small rubber band. Looking closely at the picture above, you can see my small rubber band holding the pantyhose tight to the egg.


Step 2 coloring eggs

Step 3: Then, just color your eggs as you usually would! Drop them in your cups and wait around 5 minutes.


Step 3 & 4 coloring eggs

Step 4: Then, let your eggs dry on paper towels for a couple of minutes before you unwrap them from the pantyhose.


Finished eggs come out elegant and beautiful

Step 5: Tah-dah! Beautiful, easy Easter eggs. Enjoy!


Until next time,
