Easter Egg Decorating Tricks

The traditional dying of eggs on Easter is as classic as it is messy. Check out Little Wayne Magazine cheats to make it a little easier.


Cruise the tape isle of your local craft store for decorative tape. There are many designs to choose from and you can even put a special spin on it by cutting patterns out of the tape like circles or lines.


Grab some Easter-themed stickers for a very kid-friendly way to decorate an egg.


While you’re at the craft store pick up some glue sticks and sequins and/or glitter. These are fun to add to any egg. Decorate the entire egg or just make designs like polka dots with your glue.


Using crayons to decorate your Easter eggs is a great way to get rid of old crayons. All you need to do is draw on the eggs while their still hot, and the wax will melt on contact. Be sure to have something to sit the eggs on as you don’t want to hold the freshly boiled eggs.


Glue and colorful yarn can make a quirky little design. Start by dabbing a little hot glue on the top of the egg (this is easiest to do at the wider end), then press the end of your yarn onto the glue. Glue a ring around the egg, about an inch down and begin winding your yarn or string around the egg, adding more glue as you go. You can use multiple different colors to achieve different styles.

Chalkboard eggs

Paint your eggs with a thin layer of chalkboard paint for a chic look your kids can decorate over and over again.

Shaving cream and food coloring

This one may not be the neatest but it is quick and easy. Simply spread a layer of shaving cream (or whipped cream if you’re going to eat your eggs later) on a plate. Next, splatter, dot, or draw a design onto the cream with your food coloring then roll the hard-boiled egg over the cream. Allow the eggs to dry for a few minutes then wipe off with a paper towel.

Temporary tattoos

Eggs make almost the perfect surface for temporary tattoos. Simply apply the tattoo as you would to yourself. Just be sure to choose designs that will fit or can be cut down to fit.

Kool-Aid eggs

Simply color your water with Kool-Aid instead of food coloring.

Non-toxic markers

Using markers to draw designs on your egg is easy and allows for more creativity over the dip method.

Wrapping paper

Have some left over paper from Christmas or a birthday? You can use that with a little tape for some fun designs.


If you have some mismatched buttons laying around, you can glue those onto an egg for a quirky design on their own or a little addition to a pre-dyed egg.
