Easter is almost hippity-hoppity here, but if you make like a bunny there's still time to create some of the cutest eggs around, no dye necessary. For inspiration, we turned to some of our favorite DIY blogs. Use clean, dry, room-temperature eggs for best results.

1. Get a tattoo: Temporary tattoos work on eggs -- see above -- the same as they do on skin. Find temporary tats in the craft section or design your own by printing on temporary tattoo paper (who knew?). Pro tip: Use extra-large eggs to minimize "wrinkles."

2. Go au naturel: Brown eggs are the craft paper of the dairy case — and they couldn't be simpler or chicer. Draw on brown eggs with a nontoxic white paint pen. Done! You'll find more inspiration at the crafts blog

3. Cut and paste: Decoupage is an artistic equalizer. Find images in old books, magazines, gift wrap, sheet music … or even a floral paper napkin. Carefully cut out the images, paint a thin layer of Mod Podge (the popular all-in-one glue, sealer and finish) onto the egg and gently apply the paper. Use brush handle to smooth small wrinkles and edges. Apply a finishing coat. For more tips and ideas, go to the blog
