Easter egg ideas

So many beautiful ways to decorate Easter eggs, or even eggs that you would like to put on display just because they look gorgeous. I have been honing my skills at making lace eggs and show you how in a separate feature, but here are some creative ways to decorate eggs for Easter - or for your home...


Painted eggs always look pretty an these blown eggs are painted with soft pastel acrylic paints and each one has a name of a daughter or son. If you are planning to decorate eggs this year, make sure to blow them out properly and give them a few rinses before you use them.

These adorable eggs are wrapped in sheet music and then given a couple of layers of clear acrylic sealer or ModPodge. You can download sheet music here ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ) to enlarge and print out for this project.

Another decoupage project, but these eggs are trimmed with tiny silk flowers and leaves and wrapped with string.





Use Rust-Oleum Universal metallic spray paint in Pure Gold to spray paint your Easter eggs for a golden touch. Place a small screwdriver in the bottom blow hole and then lightly spray outdoors.

These Easter eggs are decoupaged with floral and butterfly papers in pretty pastels. Finished with water-based sealant and acrylic opal glitter paint for a soft sheen.

Easter eggs decoupaged with brightly coloured gingham papers in aqua, red, green, yellow, and blue with white. Finished with water-based sealant and opal glitter paint.

So cute... These eggs are wrapped in a beautiful cross-stitched cotton and trimmed with ribbon. Click here for free cross-stitch patterns for eggs.

These cross-stitched eggs are amazing and I have had to give it some thought as to how it was done. I think you would have to pre-drill the holes with a Dremel MultiTool as I did with the lace eggs and then use a curved needle to sew. Or you could drill a hole at the back of the egg and use a straight needle.
