I love Easter and I love Easter crafts. I love a chance to use some pastels and other colors that I normally wouldn’t have in my home decor but are so pretty. I also love decorating Easter eggs! Today I’m sharing a super easy way to decorate eggs that you could even do with your kids… if you aren’t a control freak . 🙂 These fun Confetti Painted Easter Eggs are simple and modern and, did I mention easy? I used a similar technique on my Confetti Painted Ornaments that I made this past Christmas.
All you need to make these adorable eggs are:
- eggs (either hard-boiled real eggs or fake ones like the ones pictured below)
- craft paint in various Easter colors, a light and dark for each color you’d like
- a pencil with a good eraser
I was going to do mine on real eggs that I had hard-boiled but then I spotted these at Walmart and I had to pick some up!
A dozen completely paintable and “decorateable” fake eggs for less than $2? Yes please! Now I can use my painted eggs year after year! Or use them as decor on the table rather than have them in the fridge! Yay! I didn’t even think twice about putting these bad boys in my cart.
Then, you simply dip your pencil eraser in paint (I found it worked better if the paint was a little on the runny side, so add water as needed to your paint), and then dab onto the egg in a random pattern, heavier at top and less dense to no dots at the bottom of the egg.
Allow one color to dry completely and then go back and add lighter color dots (or vice versa). I liked to overlap my lighter color with the dark as well as have them not touching another dot. Just play around and see how you like it!
Happy Easter Crafting!
