Growing up, Easter was my favorite holiday. That’s probably because my parents made it so much fun. We would always dye Easter eggs together, and fight over who gets to put their egg in which color first, and have Easter egg hunts.
My parents would always get each of us kids an Easter basket filled with fun little gifts but would hide them around the house so when we woke up in the morning we would have to find them. My mom always made sure to put whatever our favorite egg was that we had dyed in our baskets too.
The best part of Easter was probably getting to eat all the hard boiled eggs after! I may be addicted to hard boiled eggs, I think they are delicious!
Easter was always loads of fun and I hope to make it that kind of holiday for my kids (when I have some).
For now, I’ll just stick to dying eggs every Easter. I made my fiancé do it with me this year and we actually had a lot of fun. Date night idea right here!
These beach Easter eggs are pretty darn simple to do and you can get creative with them. Keep reading for the tutorial.
Make These DIY Beach Easter Eggs
Get your work area prepped with your Easter egg dye kit and hard boiled eggs. I like to cut the top off of the egg crate so I have a nice open holder to put my eggs in while I work.
For this DIY, I only used the blue and yellow dyes. If you want the sand to look less yellow, mix in a bit of the orange dye.
Dip the tip of the egg in the blue dye for about 5 minutes to get the darkest blue, then dip it in a little further (about half of the egg) and hold it there for 2 minutes. Then dip it in a little further for a few seconds. Dry the egg off with a paper towel.
This creates an ombre effect to show depth like the ocean.
Dip the other end of the egg into the yellow dye for about 5 minutes or until your satisfied with the color. Try not to overlap the blue or else it might look a little green.
Dry off the egg so that the dye doesn’t drip.
Once your eggs are completely dry, it’s time to whip out the paint.
Using a small tip paintbrush, draw circles on the sand then draw lines in white overtop of the circles to represent umbrellas. You can add surfboards and pool floats in the water too.
I put little black dots randomly to represent people at the beach.
What do you think? Do these Easter eggs remind you of the beach? I love the overhead perspective, it reminds me of a drone photo or like it was taken from a plane.
After I dyed these Easter eggs, I ate a few and my fiancé was very confused. I guess in his house they never ate the eggs afterwards! We had FIGHTS in my house over who got to eat the eggs. I just assumed everyone ate them after.
So I need to ask, do you eat your Easter eggs after dying them?
