11 Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs Without Dye

Trending Now


As much as we’re fans of the tried-and-true methods of Easter egg decorating, we like to think of new and creative ways to dress up our eggs in their festive best. Here are a few kid-approved egg decorating alternatives that stay away from colored food dyes while still offering up an hour or two of crafty fun.

Tissue Paper Eggs

Want to get that dyed look without all the messy jars everywhere? Just cut up bits of tissue paper, dip them in water, and stick them all over your eggs. Once they’ve dried, you can peel off the paper and it leaves a cool, pastel coloring. Try experimenting with different shaped pieces of paper to create patterns on the egg shell. See the instructions at Moments of Mommyhood.
