The Eggmazing Egg Decorator
We saw this Easter egg idea that’s going crazy on Facebook. It’s called The Eggmazing Egg Decorator. It’s a way to decorate Easter eggs and create fun and unique designs with markers. You put a hard-boiled egg into the machine and turn it on. The machine holds and spins the eggs. Then you hold a marker on the egg as it spins to create stripes, lines, or other designs.
There are some DIY ways we found to make an Eggmazing Egg Decorator but they are complicated and aren’t simple to make! The product debuted on Kickstarter just 4 months ago and they cannot keep them in stock! The Eggmazing website doesn’t expect them back in stock until July (after Easter). Plus, shipping is $10 so they’re a bit more than the listed price leads you to believe.
However, we did find the Eggmazing Egg Decorator on Amazon. Funny, people are scrambling to get this product on the company’s website but they are in stock on Amazon right now!
This video shows you this clever egg decorator – it already has millions of views.
About the video: Is it just me or do those straight lines seem incredibly boring? I would move the pen a little back and forth to get some squiggles, plus the colors would overlap to create other colors.
Sharpies work fine! One mom said, “The ink doesn’t penetrate through the eggshell so it’s fine to eat afterward too. Sharpies are nontoxic.” However, Sharpie doesn’t recommend it. Sharpies are toxic by law. They say, “While Sharpie markers are AP-certified non-toxic, we do not recommend using them on areas of items that may come in contact with food or the mouth (such as the rim of a coffee cup).”
Amazon also food grade ink pens that are safe to use on food. If you plan on eating them, don’t use their pens, nontoxic is not the same as food grade.
Some moms take the egg middle out so there’s just a shell to avoid eating eggs with any color or bleed. To do that, simply put a hole in the top and bottom of the egg with a thumb tack and blow the yolk and whites out of it. Then use the egg for an omelet, frozen custard, dutch babies, or another recipe that calls for a lot of eggs.

The best part to me (Janet) is, no mess! When your kid’s dye Easter eggs the dye gets everywhere. This is a fun way to decorate eggs without the mess! No smell of vinegar-dye water!
The only drawback is if you have more than one kid, you’ll have to buy several of these or your kids will have to share. We know how that could go over! Still, you will have the best Easter eggs in the neighborhood and we know how important that is to some moms. It’s especially important if you are sending eggs to preschool or somewhere else. This is a craft project that not only impresses friends and family but can also keep your kids occupied for a long time!
This takes your Easter egg-making to a whole new level!
We’d love to know if you’ve tried the Eggmazing Egg Decorator and if not, would you buy one?
Next, we’ll show you how to make confetti eggs to add more variety to your Easter egg hunt. You could even decorate your eggs with the Eggmazing Egg Decorator, empty the eggs so you just have the shell, and then use our DIY confetti egg tutorial to fill them with confetti!
