Easter is a holiday celebrated worldwide, and decorating Easter eggs is one of the most common things to do. This is a fun activity that can be done with family and friends, and there are many creative ways to decorate eggs. 

This step-by-step guide will cover 11 Easter egg decorating ideas that are quick and easy to follow. Each idea will have a tutorial link or image to make it easy to recreate at home. Let’s dive in. 

Blow Out the Eggs

Before we start decorating, we need to blow out the eggs. This means removing the egg yolk and white through a small hole, leaving just the eggshell. This will make the eggs lighter and easier to handle. 

You can use a needle or a unique egg-blowing tool to make a hole at the top and bottom of the egg. Then, blow through one hole to push the egg yolk and white out of the other hole. Rinse the eggshells with water and let them dry.

Decorate with Marbling

Marbling is a popular technique that creates a beautiful swirling effect on the eggs. You will need shaving cream, food coloring, a toothpick, and a baking sheet. 

  • Start by filling the baking sheet with shaving cream and spreading it evenly. 
  • Then, swirl the shaving cream with a toothpick after adding a few drops of food coloring. 
  • Gently push the egg down after rolling it in the shaving cream. 
  • Before removing the extra shaving cream with a paper towel, let it sit for a while. 

The outcome is a gorgeously mottled egg.
