And stay tuned for more creative Easter ideas in the weeks to come.

1. Superhero, Dinosaur, and Insect Eggs: We’ll kick things off with our favorite creation from last year. We picked up temporary tattoos featuring superheros, insects, and dinosaurs (obvs) and transferred them right onto our eggs. Rambo is clearly the best. (via Brit + Co.)

2. Easter Egg Piñatas: Take a little inspiration from birthday parties of your youth and Cinco de Mayo and create little bundles of candy instead of using traditional eggs. (via Oh Happy Day)

3. Sprinkle Easter Eggs: Now, if only that was a Cadbury egg covered in sprinkles… (via Studio DIY)

4. Colorful Gold Leaf Easter Eggs: Love the combination of spring pinks and greens with old school gold leaf. (via Little Inspiration)

9. Washi and Glitter Tape Eggs: What’s better than washi tape? Combining it with glitter tape, of course. (via Centsational Girl)

11. Love-ly Easter Eggs: Keep it simple and lovely by sticking heart stickers on your eggs and then dyeing them. (via The Sweetest Occasion)

24. Marbleized Easter Eggs: Yes, you can use nail polish to marble! (via Camille Styles)

25. Chocolate “Confetti” Eggs: For a different take on the incredible edible egg, take hollow chocolate eggs, crack ‘em open and fill with candy! (via Brit + Co.)
