Easter is getting closer which means soon there will be all kinds of fun outdoor things to do and if you have little ones, or you just can’t turn down a simple little holiday DIYing, it will soon be time to dye Easter eggs. And if just thinking about that reminded you of last year’s mess or maybe your table and carpets still have multi-colored battle scars, then you’ll appreciate this list of no-dye Easter egg decorating ideas to get you through this trying time. Let’s get started!

Yes, we’re serious! You can find temporary tattoos in any and every design and color, just check out Amazon. You apply temporary tattoos to eggs just like you do on your skin, and as long as no one touches the temporary tattoos until they’re dry, these make for a simple and fun way to decorate Easter eggs.
Stickers and Washi Tape

Somehow even more simple than temporary tattoos are stickers and washi tape for your eggs. What we love about stickers and washi tape is you can choose the color palette to make all of the eggs look aesthetically pleasing or if you have little ones, show us a tiny human that doesn’t love putting stickers on everything.

Because why not? Easter eggs can have one giant eyeball or ten little ones and they look silly and wonderful either way. And the best part is you’ll more than likely have eyeballs left over which means you can apply them to random things such as milk or water bottles. (Oh, come on, it’s funny every time!)

Decorating eggs with yarn works best on plastic eggs, making this even easier, but you’ll simply cover your egg in glue, and wrap it in yarn. We love the idea of playing with both color and texture to create some really pretty and interesting Easter eggs. And again, we love the idea of sticking to a color palette; yarn-wrapped Easter eggs actually make really great decor once they’re dry.

Markers are a great way to decorate Easter eggs with no mess. For the kids, let them go crazy with bright colors, and for us bigger kids, try a little DIY typography and simple prints.

Okay, we know we said no mess, but hear us out: glitter is really fun. And glitter doesn’t leave stains as dye does. You can cover plastic eggs in glue then roll them in glitter for Easter eggs that can be used over and over again.
