Leave the Easter egg dye kit at the grocery store this year and put a modern spin on your holiday decor. Coloring Easter eggs has been one of the most popular DIY traditions for ages, but that doesn’t mean this holiday decor can’t keep up with contemporary trends. We are loving these modern Easter egg decorating ideas.

Contemporary Mix

This post from Lily Ardor includes three unique ways to DIY Easter decor, including miniature clay eggs, a gold leaf finish, and a drawn-on pattern. When paired together, these cool Easter egg designs result in a complementary modern arrangement.

Dotted Coffee Lines

These sophisticated eggs were created from coffee! The application of this cool Easter egg design seems pretty self-explanatory, but if you need directions and don’t speak fluent German, make sure to translate this page by Bildschoenes Design in your browser.


Homey Oh My used food dye and whipped cream to create a food-safe, marbleized design on two dozen eggs.


We love the look of these muted, modern Easter eggs. The pink dye is naturally made from…avocados! Get the steps from Michelle Rabin on Styled at Home.

Matte & Metallic

It’s so easy and inexpensive to elevate a typical Easter setting. Oleander + Palm coated plastic eggs with spray paint to get this classy look.


Add color to eggs with none other than hues from PANTONE. Get details on this project from How About Orange.

Mud Cloth-Inspired

Alice & Lois got inspired by African mud cloth to create fun patterns on black and white eggs with sharpies.

Gilded Creatures

This display is so simple yet so whimsical at the same time. Flax and Twine found tiny animal figurines at the craft store and was inspired to create this adorable arrangement of holiday eggs.


Who says eggs must be dyed? In another unique DIY from Flax and Twine, learn how to give eggs a macrame look with a crochet covering.

Color Blocked

Oh So Beautiful Paper used a mix of white and brown eggs to create this interesting bunch that looks like modern artwork.
