Most DIY Easter egg decorating ideas out there are specifically geared towards little ones. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that. But the big kids and adults deserve the chance to have a little artistic Easter fun, too! While more traditional eggs just involve a little bit of dye, some plastic cups, and many a stained finger, I thought it might be fun to get a little adventurous this year.
These DIY Easter eggs aren’t necessarily kid-friendly, unless you’ve got a little Picasso on your hands, but they’ll definitely inspire you to try your own egg decorating this year.

4. DIY Crescent Moon Easter Eggs
I especially love these eggs because they remind me of a cartoon I used to watch as a kid. As a grown up, these crescent moon designs are even cooler. Using a bit of painter’s tape cut into crescent designs and some pink paint, these Easter eggs are easily made and super fun to look at.
