Every year, our kiddos get so giddy when it’s time to start decorating and painting Easter eggs. I get so jealous! But, guess what people? We, grownups, get to decorate eggs too! These Easter egg decorating ideas for adults are stunning and so much fun to do.
Kids get to decorate Easter eggs, so why shouldn’t adults?
It’s a fun and untraditional way to get together with friends (or even have a girl’s night in) and celebrate while we decorate some Easter eggs. I think it’s hard to find designs that adults will love and aren’t too kid-y, which is why I wanted to put this post together.
Let’s get to decorating, shall we?
