My 15 Favorite Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs

Good morning to you! Today is April Fools day and my grandmothers birthday. In fact it is my grandmother and her twin sisters birthday. I am sure that my great grandfather who already had 9 children thought this was an April fools joke to be told he now had twin daughters! Sadly my grandmother Silvia and her Sister Jean Marie (who was a Notre Dame nun from the age of 16-80) are both gone but I have many happy memories of my time with them.

Easter is Sunday and I feel like decorating a few eggs but I do not want to go the traditional route of a kit from the store. So I have searched Pinterest and the web and these are my 15 favorite ways to decorate Easter eggs.  I found everything from naturally dyed eggs, to glitter eggs, to tie dyed eggs and more.

  1. Fun story about your Aunts! I look forward to having my family home for Easter Sunday. Decorating eggs is a tradition and I look forward to seeing what we come up with this year:) thank you for all the inspiration!!

  2. An inspiring collection of eggs and techniques. We wrap our eggs in antique lace and then dye them with brown onion skins - a tradition that has been passed down through the German lineage of our family.
    Fröhliche Ostern.

  3. Happy April, Elizabeth! What a great story about your grandmother and her twin - no doubt your great grandfather thought someone was fooling him! I don't decorate eggs any more, but these are so beautfiul they almost inspire to do some just for fun! xoxo

  4. Love this post! Thanks for all the great ideas and pictures.

  5. The blue and white ones really catch my eye.

  6. Dear dear friend, HELLO! These are happy eggs and I can't wait for Easter; we go to the lake to see the sun rise, praise and pray, read the bible and read poetry. I can't think of any other way to spend it, but of course later, some eggs are fun to decorate and eat!

    I hope you are well! LOVE TO YOU! ANita

  7. Oh this has definitely put me in the mood for an Easter celebration!

  8. Great ideas, and thanks very much for including my blue-and-white decoupage eggs! I hope you have a Happy Easter!

  9. I miss the days of decorating eggs with my children, they have grown and one is not even back for Easter this year. Those are wonderful examples!
