I have such fond memories of being a little girl and dying Easter eggs with my grandpa. He would come and spend a week with us every year for Easter and we always waited for his visit to dye our eggs. Now, whenever I dye Easter eggs I think of my Popa. 

Dying Easter eggs now doesn’t have quite the ceremony that it did when I was a kid. We usually spend Easter weekend in Washington with my family so the eggs that we dye at home don’t usually end up being part of a Easter egg hunt. I’ll confess, we don’t end up dying eggs every year, but when we do, my kids love it. 

This year I decided to put a spin on our Easter egg decorating. My kids have been obsessed with emojis so I decided to create emoji Easter eggs (if you like emojis make sure you check out my DIY Emoji Squishies which would make EGG-CELLENT Easter basket stuffers). 

I created this awesome project by using  Silhouette Printable Tattoo Paper. Printable temporary tattoo paper is my (not so) secret craft supply weapon.  It’s good for so many things in addition to temporary tattoos (like this awesome photo to wood transfer project). I love it for affixing photos and designs to unusual surfaces and knew it would be perfect for applying emoji designs to Easter Eggs.

I created a design file with some of my favorite emojis to go on eggs. You can download the file with my material list and instructions below.

I used a method that I’ve never used for dying Easter eggs before– using whipped cream and food coloring. I share the instructions for how to do that below as well.

This photo isn’t really needed for the instructions, but look how cute he is making the whipped cream!

Step 1: Spoon your whipped cream into the holes of a muffin tin. Add drops of food coloring to each muffin tin cup and then using a q-tip swirl the food coloring through the whipped cream. We used 2-4 colors in each dollop of whipped cream.

Step 2: Place your egg in the whipped cream. Leave for 10 minutes then carefully flip each egg and leave for another 10 minutes or until egg reaches the desired level of color.

Step 3: Remove eggs from whipped cream, wipe whipped cream off of each egg using a paper towel and then wipe down gently using a damp washcloth.

Step 4: Print your emojis onto your printable tattoo paper using the instructions on the packaging. The glossy side should be up and you should use the photo paper setting on your printer. I printed my image in landscape and had the printer print 4 images per page so that my emojis were approximately the size of a dime. You may want to print your emojis larger or smaller depending on the look you are going for.

Step 5: When ink is fully dry, apply the adhesive sheet to the top of printed image by peeling away the green backing on one end (there is a thin green strip that can be pulled away at one end). Align it with the end of the printed tattoo paper and then peeling away the rest of the backing while smoothing the adhesive sheet down onto the paper. Make sure you go slowly during this process, lining everything up nicely. This is the hardest part of this project (don’t worry it’s not very hard), because you aren’t able to lift and reposition the adhesive layer once it is laid down.

Step 6: Using a scraper tool or credit card rub the adhesive sheet onto the photo paper, removing any bubbles and making sure it’s firmly adhered.

Step 7: Cut your tattoos into small pieces leaving just a small amount of white around each emoji.

Peel away the clear plastic layer covering your tattoo, then apply your tattoo image side against the egg. Lay a damp washcloth over the tattoo and leave for approximately 10 seconds or until you can see your emoji through the back of the tattoo paper. Gently remove the white paper leaving your image behind. Use your washcloth to smooth down any edges of the tattoo as needed. Repeat with your other emoji tattoos!
