There is a certain nostalgia that I get from coloring Easter eggs. It reminds me of my childhood kitchen where the smell of hard-boiled eggs still lingers as my brothers and I hunch over coffee mugs.
We’d dip-dye our eggs and be happy watching the white shell absorb the coloring. So, it goes without saying that I love a good, flat finish dyed Easter egg as much as the next person.
However, there are many other fun options to explore when it comes to Easter egg decorating ideas! Sure, they might be a little bit more time-intensive, tedious, and messy, but the results definitely are worth it.
And after you send out your cute Easter cards, you’ll need something just as cute on the table for when guests arrive. As such, we’re sharing our new, favorite ways for enhancing eggs to inspire your own decorating ingenuity!
