RICHMOND CO., VA (WWBT) -

Are you bored with simply dyeing your Easter eggs? Looking for inspiration this year? We have some great decorating ideas that are fun for the whole family.

WASHI TAPE EGGS

A simple way to decorate your eggs is to cut washi tape into different shapes.

TATTOO EGGS

Do your kids love temporary tattoos? Try using them on your eggs as well!

GLITTER EGGS

A simple, elegant way to bring sparkle to your eggs is with double-sided adhesive sheets. Use a special hole punch or cut shapes from the sheets, apply to eggs, then dip in glitter.

ANIMAL EGGS

Cut out shapes from foam or construction paper an apply to dyed eggs to create these funny animal eggs!

SHARPIE EGGS

If you like to doodle, grab some colored Sharpies and let your imagination run free!

MOSAIC EGGS

Crack a few eggs while boiling them? Don't throw them away - use the cracked shells to make a mosaic egg by brushing on a bit of Elmer's Glue and layering the broken shell pieces on a dyed egg.

MOSS EGGS

Looking for something different? Grab some moss and twine from your local craft store, then use hot glue to stick the moss on in small pieces until covered. Wrap with twine and add a button or other decoration to finish!

SPECKLE EGGS

To create speckled eggs, grab some craft acrylic paint and a stiff brush or old toothbrush, then run your finger along the bristles above the eggs (on top of a paper towel, unless you want a speckled table!)

SEWING EGGS

This one is a bit complicated, but the results are fantastic! By using a special tool to cut out the back of the egg and drilling holes in it, you can then sew thread through the holes and make awesome designs. Visit www.designsponge.com for instructions.

CHERRY BLOSSOM EGGS

This one doesn't require special tools, but it will take some time and effort. By gluing yarn around a plastic egg, you can then paint on the branches and glue flower sequins to make the design. Details at www.craftpassion.com.

TERRARIUM EGGS

With some clear plastic eggs, bits of moss and dirt, and some flowers (real or fake), you can make a mini terrarium!

NATURALLY DYED EGGS

Don't want to use food coloring? Then use food to color your eggs! By boiling these foods with a bit of salt, you can make your own natural dyes. Learn how at www.yourhomebasedmom.com
