For the prettiest pastel Easter eggs and a real easy cleanup, try this tissue paper dyeing method. Then say goodbye to precarious open bowls of liquid dye and slippery eggs wobbling around on spoons 🥴

Tissue Paper Easter Eggs


  • 1. A dozen eggs + tray
  • 2. Color variety pack of bleeding tissue paper
  • 3. Scissors
  • 4. A spray bottle of water per person
  • 5. A tablecloth to catch any excess bleed
  • 6. Gloves (optional)
1. Spread out your tablecloth on your work surface and set with boiled + chilled eggs, tissue, scissors, and spray bottles.
2. Choose the tissue papers you want to use and cut each sheet into small triangles (each side shouldn't be much longer than an inch or inch and a half). You can also get creative here and cut your paper into any shape you like.
3. Spray an egg down with water and stick your tissue paper pieces on as you like. The paper will adhere to the moisture. 
4. Once you're finished decorating your egg, place it in its tray to dry.
5. Let the paper dry for 10 minutes (you may need to flip the egg over to dry the bottom). Once it's dry to the touch, gently peel away the paper to reveal your masterpiece.
