10 Fun and Unique Easter Egg Decorations

Easter Egg Decorations

There’s nothing more quintessentially spring than decorating Easter eggs. While you might be used to the classic egg dying kits with the tiny color tablets and wire egg holders, you can take your egg dying to the next level with some unique Easter egg decorations. Instead of sticking to the traditional dip-dyed eggs, you can try new ideas such as pressed flowers, mosaic tiles, gold-fold accents, or cleverly styled eggs.

Most of these Easter egg decoration ideas are easy enough for young kids to complete, but some require a little more adult finesse (such as the mosaic tiles). Either way, the whole family will have a lot of fun creating these fun and unique Easter egg decorations as part of Easter celebrations.

How to Decorate Easter Eggs

First, take a few moments to learn how to dye eggs without a kit. You can use these brightly colored eggs to create some of our unique creations below or leave them as-is. You’ll just need some hard-boiled eggs, liquid food coloring, vinegar.  Mix one-half a cup boiling water with a teaspoon vinegar and 10 to 20 drops of food coloring in a cup. Repeat the process for each color you wish to create. Next, immerse your hard-boiled eggs in the dye for five minutes. Remove the eggs from the dye with a slotted spoon or wire egg holder. Place them back in the egg carton to completely dry.

To make your family Easter celebration even more special, don’t forget to grab an Edible® Arrangement. Our Delicious Daisy® With Confetti Berries includes strawberries dipped in white chocolate and topped with rainbow sprinkles, pineapple daisies, honeydew, canteloupe, and strawberries. Or, try our Chocolate Dessert & Cheesecake Platter filled with strawberries, Bavarian pretzels, graham crackers, and sandwich cookies, all covered in decadent chocolate.
