7 Easy Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

A special hello to KOMO viewers… thanks for stopping by!

Simple and stunning Easter egg decorating ideas

Easter is less than a week away, so for today’s “DIY Diva” segment I’m sharing some “egg-cellent” egg ideas. Here are seven easy ways to decorate Easter eggs, my Mom’s delicious recipe for Deviled Eggs, a simple yet stunning Easter egg cupcake idea and a free set of egg-inspired Easter Party Printables!

7 Easy Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

1. Tissue Paper and Mod Podge: Use Easter or spring themed paper punches to create shapes out of tissue paper. Adhere to egg using a small paintbrush and Mod Podge.

2. Flower Stickers and 3. Bling: Hit your local craft store to score pretty 3-D flower stickers and adhesive rhinestones.

 4. Adhesive Paper: Another great craft store find is adhesive paper. The brand I used is called Paper Accents and you get three 8 1/2 x 11 sheers for about four dollars. Use paper punches to create shapes and cut paper tape to make “grass.” Adorn with some stick on rhinestones.

Decorating lovely Easter eggs

 5. Washi Tape: Patterned washi (paper) tape is easy to work with and makes for colorful eggs. Just cut pieces of tape and stick them to eggs… instant Easter cuteness! Washi tape is available at local craft stores and online.

 6. Monogrammed Eggs: Here’s another goof-proof egg decorating idea… letter stickers! Punch circles out of tissue paper and adhere to eggs with Mod Podge. Add single letter stickers and embellish with a little bling.

 7. Glue Dots and Glitter: Glue Dots are small adhesive dots, available at office supply and craft stores. Stick a bunch of glue dots on an egg and then sprinkle fine glitter on top. So chic and so simple.

After the Easter egg hunt is over, what do you do with all those eggs? Make Deviled Eggs of course!

Here is my Mom’s recipe for yummy Deviled Eggs:

Easy Deviled Egg Recipe

Eve’s Deviled Egg Recipe

Hard boil, peel, and halve six extra large eggs

Remove yolks

In a small mixing bowl, combine the yolks, 3 tbs mayonaise and ¼ tsp of seasoned rice wine vinegar (This makes it smooth)

Add salt and pepper to taste

Mix thoroughly and stuff egg white cups

Garnish with parsley or dill

Makes 12 Deviled Eggs

After the Easter feast is over, indulge your guests with these sweet treats!

Easy and adorable Easter egg cupcakes

Directions:

1.  Follow package instructions to melt half of the candy melts in microwave. (Do 2 separate batches, the melts harden quickly).
