32 Easter Egg Decorating Ideas You NEED This Year
We’ve definitely got Easter eggs on the brain, folks. We’re ramping up and counting down to Easter 2K15 like it’s our job (well, it kind of is our job), and bedazzling every egg in our path. So we’re bringing you yet another awesome roundup of Easter egg ideas, all made right here at Brit + Co.
1. Tattly Eggs: Genius, right?! Slap on one of Tattly’s beautiful gold tattoos for an instant egg masterpiece.
2. Nail Polish Marbled Eggs: Resident DIY pro Kelly Bryden cranked out one of our favorite dye-jobs this year — the nail polish marbled egg. These beauties are incredibly easy to make, and incredibly hard to mess up. Win, win.
3. Confetti Eggs: This DIY is crazy easy – just make your own confetti with tissue paper, then paint it on with Mod Podge.
4. Hipster Eggs: OK, we’re especially digging this wigged dude in the middle.
6. Sculpey Eggs: We may be dye-hards (har har), but we’re always game to try new mediums, which is how we discovered that Sculpey is the *best* tool for ornate eggs like these.
7. The Prettiest Hard Boiled Eggs Ever: Because what’s on the inside counts, too!
8. Sharpie Tie-Dye: What?! Sharpies + nail polish remover = the coolest dye job ever.
9. Calligraphy Eggs: Call-egg-raphy. Get it?!

13. #Hashtag Eggs: It’s official: #huevo is our new favorite hashtag.
14. Rubber Band Eggs: AKA the oldest dye-trick in the book. Stick some rubber bands on the egg, paint the dye on with a brush, let dry, then remove the bands. So. Easy.

19. Punny Centerpiece: Lucky for us, Easter happens to be the most pun-friendly holiday of the year :)
20. Bird Eggs: Make these baby birdies using just craft paint and card stock.
21. Wrapped Eggs: Got 30 seconds, double stick tape and some twine? Then you’ve got yourself an adorable huevo.
