Easter is just a few days away and I thought I would share some very easy Easter Eggs DIY I found while browsing the web. While I won’t be making any, these cool Easter egg decorating ideas are very good inspirations for possible future projects. Plus they are very pretty to look at. And I love eggs.

5 Super Easy Easter Eggs DIY

5. Silk-Dyed Eggs

Dying Easter eggs are a common practice during this season. We are adding a twist to it by using silk cloth to make Easter eggs. This is probably the hardest to do from this list because it requires more materials than the others and boiling. I saw the tutorial from Sara over at Our Best Bites, which was written 3 years ago.


  • fresh eggs
  • 100% silk cloth – preferably old or used ones like ties, scarves, hankies, etc. because you won’t be able to use them again
  • white fabric
  • twist ties or string
  • white vinegar


  1. Cut silk ties or scarves and white fabric into big enough sizes to hold the eggs
  2. Wrap an egg tightly with silk then wrap in white fabric and secure with a twist tie
  3. Repeat step 2 with the rest of the eggs
  4. Place the eggs in a pot and fill with water
  5. Add 3 tablespoons of white vinegar and boil for about 15 minutes
  6. Once done, remove the eggs from the pot and let cool before unwrapping the cloth

Or you can watch this video tutorial from HOLIDASH.

You should now have classy looking Easter eggs.

Just a reminder though, the eggs might not be good for consumption since we don’t know what kind of dye was used for the silk cloth.

4. Dip Dyed Eggs

As mentioned above, dyeing is a common way of decorating Easter eggs. Mikko of I Try DIY recently tried dip dyeing to add designs in what used to be plain looking eggs.



  1. Mix a few drops of dye, water, and vinegar in a container
  2. Dip an egg in dye
  3. After 1-2 minutes, change the position of the egg
  4. Pull out egg and pat dry with a dish cloth

You may opt to add a few more drops of dye if the coloring is too light for your taste. This also applies to how long you will let the eggs sit in one position before changing positions.

3. Washi Tape Eggs

The idea is from Lovely Indeed and it’s self-explanatory. You just need hard boiled eggs, rolls of washi tape and scissors. Cut the tape with your desired designs and stick them on the egg. While this is really easy to do, I recommend close supervision when having the little kids do this because it requires cutting. An option is to cut the tape and let the kids do the sticking, but we all know they would want to do the cutting themselves.

2. Melted Crayons Eggs

Jenna Burger shared this pretty cool way of coloring Easter eggs, and I am sure the kids would love this. All you need is freshly boiled eggs and an assortment of crayons.

After boiling the eggs, let them stand for about 1-2 minutes before you start decorating. The eggs would still be hot, I recommend having the kids wear thick gloves because one way or another, they would be touching or holding the eggs. After you’ve finished coloring, put the eggs in a tray or the original egg holder and place them in the refrigerator to cool.

1. Black and White Eggs

Easter eggs are usually decorated in an assortment of colors but I came across Obviously Sweet‘s simple but elegant looking black and white eggs. She just used a Sharpie permanent marker to decorate her Easter eggs. If you like the idea but prefer color, you can always opt for colored Sharpies.

When you’re done with your eggs, you may even want to display them using face towel Easter bunnies.

    These are so cute and I think I’d be most successful with the washi tape easter eggs. The ones with melted crayons are also interesting.
