Making pretty Easter Eggs doesn’t have to be mess– in fact, you don’t even need dye! Been there, dipped that. I get it, we all like pretty eggs….but come on. Before you go out and buy that cheap egg dying kit from the grocery store, take a look at some of these non-dye Easter Eggs ideas that are just- as- easy but will hopefully keep your fingers a little cleaner and, add a little twist to this Easter ritual with some of the following ideas we’ve collected from other creative minds. Plus you won’t have to try and balance an egg on one of those not-so-helpful metal egg holders that your kids think are great.
Non-Dye Easter Eggs
DIY Glittered Via Girl Inspired
Chalk Board Eggs via Sugar Spice and Glitter
Sharpie Eggs Via Cutesy Crafts
( Use washable marker & give the kids full control to decorate the Easter eggs how they like without staining their hands.)
Hipster Via One Good thing by Jillee Bean
(technically these are dyed blue but it’s the funky temporary tattoos I really wanted to showcase. Plus if you really want to make these you can use a wire whisk and throw on a pair of rubber kitchen gloves to help keep your fingers dye free too)
Naturally Brown Via Kaley Ann
Sprinkle Eggs via Brit.co

I love all of these… These are great ideas to mix up egg decorating! Thanks!
what a great list of non dye decorative art for Easter eggs… less mess is best! thanks!
I love the chalkboard Easter eggs. They look easy to decorate and mess-free once the kids get them!
Mimi "MimiCuteLips" Green says
I love all of these, I’m such a non-traditional so the various designs speak to me. I’m going to try a couple of these this year.
I love the idea of using temporary tattoos or even stickers on eggs. The glitter eggs are pretty, but I’d be cleaning up glitter for weeks! lol
Super cute ideas, and I love the non-dye idea as well! With all the chemicals out there, I like to have safe alternatives for my boys! Thank you!
Great options. We will probably jsut do the normal colors but I love the glitter ones. My daughter would too!
Most definitely trying the tattoos! My kids are going to love that
We too like to decorate our Easter eggs without using dye. Usually we use stickers and Sharpies. I’m loving those sprinkle eggs!
laura londergan says
these are such fun ideas. I wanted to get all creative with some easter eggs this year and it just snuck on me too fast and I guess I’m out of time almost! (sigh) guess there’s next year! lol
Mama to 5 BLessings says
What clever ideas! We are going to use Kool Aid that has been sitting in my cabinet forever to dye our eggs this week!
Claudia krusch says
These look amazing. All those years such a mess and the food coloring is not good for you! I have to try it!
Travel Blogger says
I love the sprinkle eggs! We literally were dyeing eggs last night, and my son’s hands were covered in dye which was still there even after a bath.
Amanda Love says
I love them all but think the hipster ones are definitely my fave! However I think staining your fingers is definitely something we all remember from dyeing our easter eggs and makes it so much more fun.
Janeane Davis says
You shared a lot of cute egg decorating ideas for people who like to celebrate the Easter Bunny.
Autumn @Mamachallenge says
Those are all really cute. I would have never thought about putting sprinkles on an Easter egg!
Wow, so many great ideas here. I love those hipster eggs!
A Geek Daddy says
The chalk board eggs have my vote for favorite. My kids would really be into those.
MJ (@FABHauteMama) says
These are cute options. I will do egg dying with my kids just for the experience but I do love the glitter eggs option.
These are great ideas to mix up egg decorating! They look very cool with sprinkles!
These Easter eggs are so cute! I think I like them better than the traditional dyed Easter eggs. I wish these had been around when my daughter was young.
The hipster eggs are hysterical! I think we might try the Sharpie ones!
I love all of these ideas! So simple, so fun , no mess and a great result! Thanks
Megan Elford says
I love the glitter eggs! I’m not sure I’d want to actually make them though. I think I’d prefer making the chalkboard eggs or the Sharpie eggs — they look less messy 😉
I like the glitter ones! I hate when my fingers are all dyed!
These look amazing. All those years my fingers were stained. I have to try this.
Alicia Taylor at Taylorlife.com says
I love the sharpie idea! It would give you so much more control.
Rebecca Bryant says
Oh My what gorgeous eggs. I love coloring eggs for Easter so much fun. Then eating them after is even better.
Angelic Sinova says
Those Chalk Board Eggs are so clever! I’ve actually never seen anything like that before. I might have to try that out this weekend when I’m decorating Easter eggs.
This brings back some memories though we need did it this cute but it was fun activity to do with mum
Liz Mays says
I’m loving the sharpie egg idea. We’ve been doing vinegar-based dyes for so long. We need a change of pace!
Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy says
Those are really cute. I always look for new and fun ways for egg decorating.
Jenn @ EngineerMommy says
THese are great alternatives for decorating Easter Eggs. I like all these ideas you present, but I really love the glitter ones! Glitter makes everything better!
Pam Wattenbarger says
I love the naturally brown eggs with the white designs. That’s a really cool, subtle way to decorate eggs for Easter!
I like the Sharpie eggs, really pretty. I use an super duper old metal scoop from an egg kit with my eyebrow wax warmer. I lay it across the top to balance the wax applicator in between uses. LoL. What a way to repurpose, right 🙂
Alli Rutherford Smith says
I love the idea of naturally dyed Easter Eggs. I remember all the years I’ve tried to scrub that dye off my fingers. Those Sharpie & Hipster Eggs are so cute!
Valerie Gray (@valmg) says
I remember winding up with colored fingers in my childhood. These are all very creative.
