Dying Easter eggs has come along way since I was a kid. When I was younger we didn’t realize you could take a bunch of rubberbands and some dyes and create awesome eggs like the ones that Do It and How made shown above. Instead what we had available to us was:

(And we didn’t have all the cool options that the PAAS company now carries).
There truly are some beautiful ways that are popping up all over Pintrest and the internet in general on how to decorate Easter eggs “unconventionally”. Some are simple and fun, like these Sharpie Eggs.

I like all these ideas! the ones from the last picture; look great! 🙂
Thanks! They are all so fun 🙂
I love the metallic eggs and the inked ones! I would like to try blowing eggs this year (maybe tonight!) My mom’s best friend was an artist, and she helped us blow eggs and make them into Christmas ornaments when I was a child. These ornaments are some of our most cherished each year when the time comes to decorate the tree.
Alicia, if you do try blowing eggs please let me know how it goes! I think they are so beautiful and would love to see how yours turn out 🙂
I paint eggs as decorations and not just for Easter. They seem to find always a good place in my client’s homes.
Eggs are such a beautiful touch in decorating — any time of year!
Loving all of these! It’s really too bad I didn’t have these ideas to inspire me when I was growing up.. my eggs would’ve been awesome!
Yeah, I think about that too! So many great ideas floating around these days!
My eggs never looked so good, but these make me want to give it another go.
Thanks Lulu! And yes, I think these eggs are so inspiring to want to try all different types of methods, despite past experiences!
My little sister got SUPER into egg blowing – God bless her patient soul – and I was always the kid dunking away in the regular ole’ kit. I concur with Alicia on the gold painted versions. And those rubberband ones. Spectacular!
Yeah, I never got any farther than the dunking in the basic PAAS kits. (Though I would try different “techniques” to try to get multi-color eggs). Yeah, I love the gold painted ones — but I think the rubberband ones are my favorite.
I am with Lulu! I am going to give it another crack too!
Fun! Let me know if you do and how yours turn out.
You always do such inspirational round-ups. I really love the ones speckled in gold paint. Might have to give it a whirl this Easter!
Aw, Thanks Lauren 🙂
I think those are so pretty — let me know if you try them.
These eggs are beautiful!
Thank you Fae!! 🙂
Great eggs artwork my friend thanks for sharing I love it 🙂
Thanks Jake! Glad you like them 🙂
What beautiful and creative ideas!
Thank you!! 🙂
These are all very pretty. I was amazed by the all natural eggs – I’d love to give that a try. I’m actually going to a zentangle class today – maybe I’ll take my easter eggs with me.
Thank you for visiting my blog by the way.
Thanks! Yes, I think this idea of natural dying eggs is really cool.
And it was my pleasure to visit 🙂

wow! these are stunning!!!! thank you for sharing, Kenley x
You’re quite welcome! Glad you like them. 🙂
I have noticed that egg decorating has become quite an art since the days when I was a little girl and all we used were wax crayons and Paas egg dye. I am thinking that next year I have to try some of these amazing techniques. Happy Easter! ~ Thea
Happy Easter! And yes… egg decorating has come ALONG WAY since doing them as kids. I love the fact that they have really become, as you said, quite an art!
