Easter Egg 101: Colors & More!

April 19, 2019



We know that with each holiday, there is a level of stress that comes along. For those of us who are a bit lacking in the artistic and creative categories, we at LPNN did some searching on tips for Easter egg decorating that may help take away some of the oops out of egg decorating, such as unintended off colored dyed eggs.




If you struggle trying to get Easter eggs dyed to the color you expect, you are certainly not alone. Maybe the pastel purple that looks so beautiful in magazines, turned out looking like a certain famous purple dinosaur. Or you tried your best last year to fix a color problem from the year before. Don’t worry, because McCormick has you covered.


The company of spices and food dyes has created a chart to help all of us who try every Easter to perfect our egg dying colors. Get ready to move on to be an Easter egg dying pro!


This year McCormick also added an interactive color wheel to help you find the perfect color. 


McCormick also has instructions for those who need help with more than just the single-color dying of eggs. They provide instructions on where to start (boiling eggs)! For dying, the chart provides instructions on how to get the dye to work. According to the chart, you fill a bowl with ½ cup boiling water and 1 teaspoon (tsp) of vinegar to start. Then. add in the number of drops of dye(s) you need for the color you want and submerge the egg for around five minutes.


Designs and Decoration


If design is more your style, there are a number of places online that can help you become an Easter egg design master. And by the way, don't worry if you are not an artsy person like me. These tips make it look like you know what you're doing!


The Incredible Egg has some amazing tips that don't require much. Such as their idea for eggs that are designed with leaves and flowers.



Creative Connections for Kids has a great blog for decorating Easter eggs with hot glue! 



A Thrifty Mom has decorating and dying ideas for eggs that include shaving cream, whipped cream, and even crayons. 


Clearly, there are many ways to dye and decorate your Easter eggs, and some of the techniques can be used for Easter decorations as well, not just eggs to find and eat later. 


By following these tips, or others that you come across, you will have a brightly and beautifully colored Easter.
