Check out how easy it is to decorate brown Easter eggs with just a bit of creativity and a few craft pens! This no-dye Easter Egg DIY tutorial will show you how to turn your brown eggs into works of art! This is a fun craft for the kids too!
If you’re new here, welcome! I’m Ashley, wife and mom to 2 kids. We live in the suburbs of San Francisco where I like to pretend we live on a farm. Haha! We have 5 chickens that lay a copious amount of beautiful organic and free range brown eggs.
This is our first Easter since getting the chickens. So, this year, rather than dying the typical white Easter eggs, I wanted to decorate our natural brown eggs. After searching Pinterest for hours on end, I finally decided to keep it simple. This easy Easter craft requires no dye, just a bit of creativity and some craft pens!
I also have a great tutorial on how to make Natural Easter Egg Dye using fruits and vegetables!

- Hard Boiled Natural Brown Eggs
That’s it! Simple supplies for a simple Easter project.
Painted Brown Eggs Instructions
Ok, before we get started I want to share a few tricks that I learned along the way. These will help make this project go a bit easier, although this really is a simple and easy Easter DIY!
- Bring eggs to room temperature before decorating. This helps the paint pen go on smoother. I found the tip of the pen tended to dry out when trying to paint on cold eggs. Also, cold eggs create condensation which will mess with the process.
- To make your design in a straight line, keep your pen steady and turn the egg, rather than moving the pen to create a line.
So, now you have your supplies and are ready to get started. I chose to make a bunch of geometric designs on my natural brown eggs. Tip: you can google “Easter Egg Designs” if you are looking for some inspiration!
Now, let your imagination go wild and create some fun designs on your eggs with the pens. The ink dries quickly and is perfect for creating crisp, clean lines.
I hope you enjoyed this fun project for decorating brown eggs for Easter. Be sure and check out all of my friends ideas below!
