Thank you for sharing!!

Welcome to day 4 of our Easter Egg decorating ideas, Day 1 I shared how brightly dye Easter eggs, Day 2 we made Wax Resist Easter Eggs, and Day 3 we made Marbleized Easter eggs, today I am going to share 1 last fun and creative way to decorate Easter Eggs.

For Day 4 ~ Our idea came from this Pinterest idea, well lets just say ours did not turn out anything like theirs looked like. The rubber bands were hard to get on the eggs without breaking the eggs, Dustin tried masking tape and that just came off in the water. So I think if we try these again we would definitely recommend using painters tape.



Multi-Colored Striped Easter Egg Decorating

Supplies Needed:
  • I had Dustin separate his Easter dyes and had light colors in one area and dark colors in another area. First dye your eggs completely with a light color.
  • Take them out and let them dry completely.
  • After you soak your eggs in a lighter color and they are dry, you add the rubber bands and put them into a slightly darker color. Adding the rubber bands was interesting, as this broke most of the shells…


  • Once you have the rubber bands on them put them into a darker color and let them soak for a couple minutes.
  • Remove your tape or rubber bands for a beautiful striped Easter Egg!


Dustin tried to use masking tape for the lines instead of the rubber bands, but it didn’t work so well and the tape ended up just falling off in the cups of dye. Next time we will use some very thin painters tape instead.




Our stripes did not turn out like the Pinterest project we found. But they turned out pretty neat looking! Next year we will be trying the project using painters tape instead of rubber bands!
