They’re pretty funny for an Easter egg hunt, or just for leaving in a bowl as decoration. These DIY typography Easter eggs are perfect if you’re looking for no-dye Easter egg ideas, or if you just want a fun Easter craft project to do with your friends or your kids. You can use the phrases we’ve used, or get creative and make up your own! Bonus points if you get this reference:
No-Dye Easter Egg Ideas
We actually have a treasure trove of no-dye Easter egg ideas, because most years I just don’t want to bother with it. The dye can be messy and hard to prepare, and if you have toddlers like I do, sometimes they’re just not quite coordinated enough to handle the dyeing process. So projects like these typography Easter eggs one can be customized or altered to your preference or to be age-appropriate if you’re trying it with kids.

How to Make DIY Typography Easter Eggs
Let’s make ’em!
- contact paper or adhesive vinyl
- scissors and craft knife
- optional (but it makes it a whole heckuva lot easier): Cricut machine
- eggs (either real or faux)
- craft paint
Make Time: 1 Hour (Plus Drying Time)
First of all, let me give it to you straight. You could do this project and cut it all out by hand. But it’ll definitely take way more than an hour. If you have a cutting machine like a Cricut, now’s the time to break it out. If you don’t but you’ve been considering it, check out all of our other Cricut projects to see the kind of things you could make. Another route to try is purchasing tiny alphabet stickers from a craft store if you don’t want to cut out the letters. I can’t comment on how stickers would work, as I’ve only tried vinyl. But give it a shot if you like! (More food for thought: you could skip the typography Easter egg idea entirely and just use any cute stickers!)
Step 1: Design and cut your letters into phrases that you love. If you like mine, you can download the file right here! Upload it to the Cricut design space and cut, or print it onto your vinyl and cut out the letters by hand. Set your letters aside.
Step 2: If you’re working with real eggs, hard boil them and allow them to cool. If you’re working with faux eggs, obviously skip this step (unless you want to be the crazy person boiling fake eggs).
Step 3: Paint your eggs! You could technically dye them if you like, but I chose to paint these because I wanted really opaque, saturated colors. Just cover them with a coat or two of craft paint and let them dry thoroughly. It helps to have an egg carton handy as you’re painting them; lay them down on the carton and paint one side, then allow that side to dry and flip them over to paint the other side. Continue until you have the paint coverage that you like.
Step 4: Stick your letters onto your eggs! It helps quite a bit to use tweezers for placement if your letters are extra tiny. Press the letters into the eggs to be sure that they adhere thoroughly.
What To Do with Your Easter Eggs
Hide these dudes all over the yard and make your family hunt for them! Or just take pictures and Instagram the pants off ’em. If you used faux eggs, you can store them away and bring them out year after year to display or hide. So fun! I love displaying these DIY typography Easter eggs in a fun bowl or dish, tucked in with some other Easter decor. But no matter where you put these cuties, you’re pretty much gonna win at Easter. I said a hip, hop! xoxo
