Pinterest’s Most Unique Easter Egg Ideas

by Shannon Smith

Remember when you were a kid and you’d get those Easter egg dying kits from the grocery store with the little bendy dipper and the colored tablets? How fantastic was that?

I’ve got news for you — you’re never too old for some good old fashioned Easter fun. But we aren’t kids anymore, so maybe we’ll just dye our eggs in a more *grownup* way?

I’ve searched Pinterest for unique and beautiful ways to die Easter eggs. And let me tell you, there’s nothing more *adult* than some of these gorgeous designs. Let’s get cracking!

Water Marble Easter Egg Decorating

With just a few drops of nail polish and a cup of water, you can make these beautifully marbled eggs. Visit Throne & Thimble for an easy and helpful how-to video!

Silk-Dyed Eggs

Your old handkerchief or tie needs to be 100% silk for this to work, but it’s so worth it because the results are stunning. Sara at Our Best Bites has detailed instructions with pictures at every step. She even goes the extra mile to throw a couple extra tips at the end for display!

Paper Towel Tie Dyed Eggs

There may not be any easier way to amp-up your Easter egg game than this idea from One Little Project. In addition to instructions for dying, Debbie has a special trick for hard-boiling your eggs!

Cool Whip Marbled Eggs

My idea of fun is making something beautiful and getting a treat while you do it! That’s right, I’ve got my sights set on stealing a spoonful of that Cool Whip (preferably before the dye goes in). And it’s a win-win from Tot School because the subtle, swirled result is nothing short of lovely.

Naturally Dyed Eggs

While vibrant dyes are fun, we can all probably agree that it’s not the *healthiest* thing to color your food with whatever Red 40 and Yellow 5 actually are. Luckily for us, Mother Nature stepped up to the plate and you can have beautifully colored eggs without the chemicals! Elizabeth from Babble swears it’s not as hard as it looks in her detailed step-by-step guide.

Rice Shake Easter Egg Decorating

ICYMI: the speckled look is in. Michelle from Crafty Morning’s clever tutorial is just as quick and easy as the process itself. And the cleanup is a breeze — which is huge in the egg-dying realm.
