There’s a time and a place for classic dyed eggs — and your Easter party isn’t one of them. Rather than sticking to your tried-and-true dyeing methods, consider one of these unexpected Easter egg designs, complete with gold foil accents, puff paint, and temporary tattoos. But if you lean more toward the traditional look, ditch your beloved dyeing kits for more natural methods that use shaving cream and fresh produce instead. Once your eggs are dipped, dyed, and decorated, add them to your Easter baskets, table decorations, or floral centerpieces. Your house is looking more colorful — and festive — already.

Polka-Dot Eggs

Go for a 3D effect by dabbing a dyed (or plain!) egg with puff paint. Don’t get ahead of yourself: Do one side at a time, allowing each time to dry completely before moving on.

Paper Punch Eggs

If you’re not as artistically inclined, use craft punches to cut shapes from different colored paper. Fold the shapes down the middle and attach to solid-colored eggs with craft glue.

Chick Eggs

Add even more chicks to your Easter table with these adorable dyed eggs. To make, dip the front of an egg length-wise in yellow dye. Once dry, draw face and body features with a fine-point permanent marker.

Bright Egg Votives

These double as decor: Once the hollow eggs are done drying, gently break the shell with a spoon, removing the top third. Dye the rest of the egg and once dry, place a tealight candle inside.

Mosaic Easter Eggs

Turn shattered egg shells into a stunning centerpiece by gluing pieces of a broken egg on another egg in a mosaic pattern. How simple and sweet!

Tiny Critter Eggs

To make these totally cute, totally easy eggs, attach painted mini plastic animals, flowers, and insects onto a plain white egg with craft or hot glue. The best part? No artistic skills necessary.

Cactus Easter Eggs

How cute are these trendy little cactus-inspired creations? We suspect you’ll want to display these long after Easter has come and gone.
