2 Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

The kids and I had so much fun working on decorating eggs the last couple of days. Here’s what we did.

Ladybug Eggs


  • blown out eggs
  • red candle
  • matches
  • black permanent marker
  • black ribbon
  • bamboo skewer

1. Stick the egg on a skewer.

2. Light the candle and wait for wax to melt.

3. Drip wax on egg and cover with dots. Drop from a higher distance for thinner wax dots.

4. Let dry. Add bug head and legs using permanent marker.

5. Add ribbon hanger. Hang on egg tree.


Butterfly Eggs


  • blown out eggs
  • butterfly/nature stickers
  • watercolors
  • toothbrush
  • ribbon
  • floral foam
  • paper towels

1. Cover the egg with stickers. We used butterflies, hearts and flowers.

2. Stick the egg on a skewer and stick into floral foam.

3. Wet toothbrush and dip in paint. For best results use lots of paint and little water.

4. Rub your finger along the toothbrush bristles and spray the paint on the egg.

5. Make sure the stickers are completely outlined with paint spray.

6. Let dry.

7. Remove stickers to reveal the butterfly.

8. Add ribbon hanger. Hang on egg tree.
