Tie-Dye Your Easter Eggs With This Easy Trick

Take dying Easter eggs to the next level. Instead of the traditional egg decorating kit, try using shaving cream or whipped cream. With a few simple supplies, you will be on your way to having beautiful tie-dye finished eggs. 


  • Hard-Boiled Eggs  
  • Shaving Cream or Whipped Cream (if you are going to eat the hard-boiled eggs)  
  • Food Coloring  
  • Toothpicks  
  • Baking Sheet or Pan   
  • Gloves 


 * Prepare hard-boiled eggs prior to completing step one  

Step 1: 

 Fill your baking sheet or pan with a thick layer of shaving cream or whipped cream. Use a spatula to evenly spread the cream across the bottom of the pan.  

 Step 2:  

Place drops of food coloring onto the cream. Mix and match colors to achieve a tie-dye effect. The more drops you use, the more vibrant the colors.  

 Step 3:  

 Take a toothpick and swirl the food coloring drops you made in the pan. You should start to see that tie-dye effect.  

 Step 4: 

 Using a pair of gloves, grab a hard-boiled egg and roll it into the colored cream. Make sure to coat the entire egg.  

 Step 5:  

 Place the cream coated egg onto a paper towel to dry for 20 minutes.  

 Step 6:  

 After 20 minutes, wipe the cream off the egg with a paper towel. You have now successfully made a beautiful tie-dyed egg!
