Easy Easter DIYs Using Eggs

Springtime is all about bright colors, new beginnings, and creativity. What better way to welcome the season and have some Easter-themed fun than decorating eggs? This blog provides a step-by-step guide to making three easy Easter crafts that the whole family will love!

Blowing Eggs
Before starting any of our Easter egg DIYs, you’ll need to remove the yolks from all the eggs you’ll be working with.

What You’ll Need:

  • Eggs
  • Pin (you can also use a needle or sharp metal skewer)
  • Cocktail stick or wooden skewer
  • Paper clip (optional)
  • Bowl

Step 1: Using your pin or needle, carefully poke a hole in the top and bottom of your egg. Gently insert your cocktail stick or skewer into the hole to gradually increase its size. The hole in the bottom of the egg needs to be big enough for the yolk to pass through, but be careful not to crack the egg in the process.

Step 2 (Optional): Use a straightened paper clip to “stir” the yolk inside the egg, making it easier to blow through the hole you made.

Step 3: Hold your egg over a bowl and blow as hard as you can into one of the holes in your egg. The yolk should start coming out the other end. You won’t need the yolk for these projects, but you can set them aside to use for cooking later!

Step 4: Now that the yolks are out of the eggs, rinse them under hot tap water to remove any residue. Once rinsed, leave the shells out to dry.

DIY #1 – Painting Eggs
Test your painting skills by getting creative with eggs! Paint stripes, patterns, splatters, and more! The design options for this DIY are endless!

What You’ll Need:

  • Eggs with yolks blown out
  • Acrylic paint
  • Cocktail stick or skewer
  • Paint brushes
  • Sponge (optional)

Step 1: Insert a cocktail stick or skewer into the bottom hole of your egg to keep it away from your fingers while you paint.

Step 2: Use paintbrushes or a sponge to apply paint to your egg. Get creative with this part!

Step 3: Let the paint dry while your egg is still on the skewer by holding the skewer in a glass.

Step 4: Once your paint is dry, add a second coat to brighten the colors or add more designs! Leave your egg on the skewer until you are done painting and the egg is dry.

DIY #2 – Dyeing Eggs
Use food coloring or natural dyes with ingredients from around your home to create beautiful, dyed eggs that are the perfect Easter decorations! We will teach you how to dye eggs using food coloring for this DIY.

What You’ll Need:

  • Eggs with yolks blown out
  • Vinegar
  • Food coloring (your choice of colors)
  • Measuring spoons
  • Kitchen tongs
  • Paper towels
  • Heat-proof bowls (one bowl for each color of food coloring)
  • Crayons (optional)

Step 1: Prep your work area by laying down paper towels to prevent food coloring stains.

Step 2: To make your dyes, bring some water to a boil, then add 1 teaspoon of vinegar and about 20 drops of food coloring. The more food coloring you add, the more vibrant your dye color will be. Pour your mixture into a heat-proof bowl deep enough to dip your eggs in.

Step 3 (Optional): You can use crayons to create fun patterns and designs by drawing directly on the egg before you dye it. The dye pigment will not stick to the wax, so whatever you draw will stand out after you dip your egg!

Step 4: When you’re ready to dye your egg, use a pair of kitchen tongs to submerge the egg into your bowl of coloring. Make multicolor eggs, striped eggs, patterned eggs – You can be as creative as you want with this part!

Step 5: Remove your eggs from the dye using your kitchen tongs and set them out to air dry when finished.

DIY #3 – Jello Filled Eggs
This DIY project is a fun way to make a tasty treat that can also be a great April fool’s prank! You can paint or dye your eggs before you add the Jello to add to the fun and make this a 2-part project or leave them plain and give someone a surprise when their egg turns out to be Jello!

What You’ll Need:

  • Eggs with yolks blown out
  • Packets of Jello (Your choice of flavor)
  • A fine pastry tip
  • Egg carton
  • Duct tape

Step 1: Use a small piece of duct tape over the hole in the bottom of your eggs to seal it closed, then place your eggs tape-side down back into the carton.

Step 2: Follow the instructions on the package to prepare your Jello mixture. Try making different flavors to add variety to your eggs!

Step 3: Once your Jello mix is ready, insert a fine pastry tip into the top hole of your egg and carefully pour the liquid Jello into the egg. Be careful not to overfill the egg, as the liquid will be hot.

Step 4: Once you’ve filled all your eggs, place the carton in the fridge to allow the Jello to set. This should take 2-3 hours.

Step 5: Once the Jello has set completely inside your eggs, open the shells and enjoy this tasty Easter treat!
