If you’re wanting a fun and creative way to decorate Easter eggs without the hassle and mess of dying them, then you really should consider these ideas because trust me, plastic eggs are the way forward. 😉
I spent years decorating eggs with the kids for them to take into school for the obligatory annual egg decorating competitions and despite my best efforts, we never once won a prize. Not even an honourable mention. 😉
This was our best effort – just look at the detail in that wedding dress…
Luckily, my days of decorating Easter Eggs have passed and I don’t have to worry about it any more but this year, I feel like I want an Easter Tree in my kitchen which I can decorate with some plastic eggs. That’s had me searching Pinterest for inspiration when I really should have been doing more important things (cooking, cleaning etc) so now I have more ideas than I have time.
So my Pinterest Vdoesn’tdoesnt feel like a total waste of time, I thought I’d share some of the ideas with you today!
While you can use plain white or brown hard-boiled eggs for some of these projects, most of these decorating ideas work best on plastic eggs, such as these little beauties that are ideal for decorating. They’d not only look fab as part of an Easter Tree, but they’d also look great as centrepieces in a bowl or even in a display on a shelf or sideboard.
