10 Amazing and Unique Easter Eggs Ideas
Easter is just around the corner, so it is time to think about decorations. And we are not talking about the Lindt bunnies or traditional dyed eggs, here we will show you 10 (actually more!) great ideas how to make spectacular Easter eggs.
Ombre Easter Eggs
Super easy and simple, but quite impressive. Pick your favorite food coloring and dye the eggs as usual, just try different amounts of time for each one. Might take some time to find a good interval, but try 1 minute, 2 minutes, and so on – the idea is to have eggs with the same hue, but different color saturation. When ready arrange them – they look perfect on egg stands and enjoy!
You just need some black paint and a handful of chalks. After covering the eggs completely black you can draw anything you want on them using chalks. Best thing about this idea – you can wipe any mistakes and try new ideas many times. If you give your kids colored chalks they will love it.
For this approach you can use small wooden or regular hard boiled eggs and your favorite colored threads. Start by gluing a “cap” of twine at each end of the egg, wait for it to dry and complete the rest by tightly wrapping the egg completely in thread. Use just a small amount of glue and get creative – you can combine different colors too!
Simple and elegant! After dying your eggs in pretty, gentle colors wrap a band of lace around the middle.
Now that’s a true surprise! Start by emptying the egg shells – carefully make a hole at the bottom of a raw egg and empty it. Clean the shells, fill them with different colored jellos and wait for it to set. When serving you can surprise your guests by hiding the bottom and presenting the eggs on a stand or you can remove the shell and have jello-eggs.
Easter Eggs With Googly Eyes
Start with dyed eggs and some googly eyes. The rest depends on your imagination – one eyed monsters (add “cracks” for more effect) or cute animals – you decide. Of course you can complete the eggs with legs, ears and so on.
Now that is truly tricky. Warning: patience and skills will be required. After emptying the shell small holes must be drilled (yes, using a super tiny drill) and after this the embroidering part follows – carefully threading through the holes to create any design you can imagine.
Chinese Marbled Tea Eggs
That’s an opportunity to mix some ideas and traditions. Easter and the Chinese New Year? Go for it! For centuries Chinese Marbled Tea Eggs have been a symbol of gold, money and prosperity, but who says they can’t be part of any Easter feast? Following the original recipe will give you both great looking and great tasting eggs.
Golden Easter Eggs
Gold adds a bit of class to everything – even eggs! If you want to cover the eggs completely in thin gold foil there is no need to dye them first. Another option is to use colored eggs and apply a bit of glue here and there, wrap them in foil and remove the bits that don’t stick. This will make the eggs look speckled with gold, very original. Of course you can use silver or any other metallic foil. Paint is an option too – might be even easier for painting whole eggs in gold.
Another idea – use the gold foil to make shapes, letters or any design you want.
Who doesn’t love shiny things? Get some glitter, glue and eggs and create magic – apply even coats of glue and glitter to get smooth surface on the eggs. Feeling crafty? Paint some designs with glue and cover them in glitter – the results will be amazing!
