Easter egg decorating may be thought of as a kids’ activity, but it’s a fantastic creative outlet – and enormous fun – for us grown-ups too. In fact, with a little inspiration, you could easily create Easter centerpieces, tablescapes or vignettes that are graphically modern, humorously tongue-in-cheek, or simply beautiful. Here are the top 4 designs we’ll be trying out this long weekend.


1. A floral wreath crown: Flax and Twines sweet floral nod to the beginning of Spring. 

2. Minimalist patterns: Simply break out the white marker and decorate a carton of eggs with simple patterns. Yeah, its that easy. 

3. Gold and glammy: Let the kids at the rest of the glitter while you hog the gold for yourself to make these Midas-touch designs.

4. Go boldly: How fantastically striking are these Alice and Lois mud cloth-inspired designs?

Of course, before you get to the decorating, you may need a refresher on prepping your eggs. Check out this handy tutorial at Artful Parent.

Happy decorating!
