18 DIY Easter Eggs

(Numbered photos match designer's listed a the bottom of the page)
Here are some of my favorite, DIY, egg decorating ideas made using basic household items, foods, and craft supplies. 

We love egg decorating and hunts in my family. My sister is famous for creating elaborate, Easter egg hunts, with mysterious messages, clues, and pictograms that lead to candy and baskets. It's a whole lot of fun! We dig egg coloring and decorating, too. It's funny to see our kids, and some of us grown ups, meticulously dipping eggs, from spoons, into colored dyes, turning, basting and mixing to get that perfect color. 

Some household materials to look for:
hard boiled eggs, plastic eggs, or wood eggs
food coloring for dye
google eyes
hot glue gun
elmer's glue
sharpie markers
jute yarn
rubber bands
craft paint
metallic craft paint
glitter paint
gold leaf paper
chalk board paint
coffee filter
bubble wrap
sticker letters

So, take a look through your craft drawers and boxes because I'm sure you have some of the items needed. Choose your favorite designs, get the kids together, and have fun!
