Looking for some cute and innovative ideas for this years Easter Eggs? Check out these 22 DIY Easter Egg Projects here!
When you think of Easter, what are some of the first things that comes to your mind? To me, it’s Easter baskets, the Easter bunny, and of course, colorful eggs! I have many fond memories growing up of looking for colorful eggs with my family, both at home and at church Easter egg hunts. While many of the eggs back then were made with store bought kits, people today are getting much more creative, thanks to Pinterest and many of the awesome ideas you can find just by browsing the internet. Honestly, I feel like the most uncreative person ever when I look at some of the beautiful eggs I have seen my friends making prepping for Easter. I mean, they look like pieces of art! To say that they are inspiring is an understatement!

What shocked me the most, however, was when many of them told me they were super easy to make, maybe even easier than some of the boxed kits. Hearing this, I knew I had to try some of these cute projects for myself and thought I would share some of my favorite with you guys. Below, are 22 of the coolest DIY Easter Egg Projects I found online and from blogger friends. These projects are not just for kids, but ways to dress up your table for Easter dinner. Make sure to tell us what you think of these projects below!

    I have always liked the hollowed out eggs with bunnies in them but it can be difficult for kids to make. I like the lower right pic here, so cute.

    these are a longer lasting projects that are far more creative than just dunking eggs. the older kids should enjoy the creativity they make.

    Easter eggs have come a long from the cardboard kit with the metal dipping spoon. Although they’re all pretty, there are a few that really stand out. I’m tempted to try it myself.

    These are perfect for my children! I am going to get started on the Preschool Eric Carle one right away. I really need to get the kiddos into more hands on projects like this. Otherwise, they’re glued to their screens!

    These look amazing. I would love to try to do one myself, but I’ve never been very good at art or crafty things. Maybe the kids can try during the holidays

    That Ukranian egg tutorial looks crazy! The eggs are beautiful though I don’t know if I have the time or steady hand to pull it off. But it was pretty cool to see the colors revealed after the wax melted away.
