These fun food-themed Easter egg decorating ideas may not trick my kids into thinking they’re actually eating pineapple or a hamburger, but I still think they’re a cool way to switch up our normal egg-dyeing routine.
If you want to try your hand at something a little unexpected this year, and if you love food as much as we do, check out these fabulous ideas below. Although we’ve rounded up amazing pop culture Easter eggs, a fun tie-dye tutorial, and even the coolest DIY galaxy Easter eggs, these food-themes ones might be my favorite yet.
(Psst… A lot of the designers we’ve linked to below use fake, as in styrofoam or wooden, eggs for their designs, which you can totally do! Or, use the kind you eat. I think it’s a lot more fun that way.)
