Two years ago I found these 12 Decorating Easter Eggs on clearance at Walmart. I didn’t do anything with them until last year and I ended up buying another one as well. Below I will be sharing what I did with the eggs.
The five ideas I’m sharing below were mostly used with paints. I’m going to share a brief explanation for each but by looking at the photo it is self-explanatory.
What You Need:
- I used scrapbook paper with flowers to glue onto the egg which I painted yellow.
- I used a fake flower that I glued an acrylic jewel to the center of the flower.
- I painted different flowers all around the egg.
- I love the beach so I knew I wanted two to look like it, then I used scrapbook paper that had palm trees that I cut out and glued onto the egg.
- I painted the eggs black and used small pieces of sponge to sponge blue and purple paint, try not over do it and hide the black, you want black showing. Then I flicked white using a paint bush onto the eggs, also don’t over do it with the white.
These next two eggs are marbled technique using two different type of methods, both are messy but I loved the outcome.
What You Need:
Small bowl with water
- You want to use room temperature water and work fast so its best to have the fingernail polish unscrewed. Use three colors at a time and drop in a drop of each color alternating about 2 to 3 times. Each time you drop a color drop it into the color before so you will have a ring of colors, then use a toothpick to drag the colors to make a pattern, remember be quick. Dip you egg in half way longs ways then repeat to do the other side.
- Add shaving cream to your shallow bowl/container and using food coloring add a few drops of 2 to 3 colors. Using a popsicle stick to mix the colors but don’t over mix. Then roll your egg into the shaving cream and then set aside for a few minutes. Using a napkin clean off the shaving cream.
I hope you enjoyed this, if you using any of these ideas share in the comments below. I displayed my eggs into tall vases this year I think I’ll place them into Easter baskets.
