5 Genius Easter Egg Decorating Hacks
Easy Striped Easter Eggs
Wrap each egg with several small rubber bands. Play with the number of rubber bands, the thickness of the bands, and their spacing. Once you have the rubber bands placed securely, place each egg into a dye bath and let sit for about 5 minutes. Remove the egg, dry it off with a paper towel or cloth, then take off the rubber bands to reveal your striped design.
Wax Resistant Easter Eggs
Using a white or clear wax crayon, draw any designs you like onto each egg. Try polka dots, geometric shapes, and names to start. Then, dip each egg into a dye bath and let sit for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally to make sure the egg is dyed evenly. Remove the egg to reveal the designs.

Dip-Dyed Easter Eggs
Place an egg inside a whisk. Lower the end of the whisk into a dye bath, stopping when the egg is half dipped into the dye. Leave the egg submerged for a couple minutes, then remove it and dry off the egg with a paper towel or cloth. You can leave the design as-is, or to create a two-tone egg, rotate the egg and dip-dye the other side.
Two-Tone Easter Eggs
Fill a mini muffin tin with dye bath (following the recipe above). Gently place an egg into each slot of the tin, so that only one-half of the egg is submerged in the dye. You may need to adjust the level of the dye to make it higher or lower, depending upon the desired effect. Let sit for about 5 minutes, then remove the egg and dry it off with a paper towel or cloth. For a two-tone look, turn the egg over and dye the other half in a contrasting color.
Washi Tape Easter Eggs
This decorating idea works for both dyed eggs and undyed eggs if you want to skip the messy dyeing process altogether. Cut shapes out of the washi tape, like small triangles or lines. Arrange the washi tape stickers on each egg to create a fun and colorful pattern.
