Easy Easter egg decorating ideas
Instructions: Holy chic shaving cream eggs
- hard boil eggs and let cool to room temperature
- fill shallow dish with 1 inch of shaving cream or fill individual muffin tin spaces with cream
- drop random drops of food coloring; swirl with a toothpick or straw
- either use gloves and roll eggs in shaving cream mixture or use a spoon to do the same
- transfer eggs with shaving cream still on it to a plate; let sit for 10-30 minutes
- rinse off with cool water (use gloves to protect hands from dye if you want!)
- optional (but totally makes these eggs chic AF): dot some metallic paint on the dried, dyed egg and rub it off with a paper towel for a seriously gorgeous, luxe effect.
Instructions: Adorable friends painted eggs
When you don’t have any artistic skills but still love adorable little Easter friends, this is the way to go.
- with room temp boiled eggs, draw a sweet, simple little face of an animal (if you want a painted animal, do the drawing after the paint has dried)
- I used crayon because I prefer the soft effect if gave, but a Sharpie would also work great.
- paint the bottom third of the egg your favorite color; draw in any small details on top of the paint after it’s dried. I let mine dry upside down on a paint palette – it has the perfect little shape to hold the egg.
