Modern Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
Popping in today to share a project that it actually took me longer to photograph than it took me to make! One day I was really wanting to do a small painting craft, so Mike took Ramona down to the park for about a half hour so I could get a little crafting therapy in.
I didn’t have any plans, but I had some plain wood eggs I’d picked up, as well as some paints and brushes from my craft stash. So I just started painting for fun. I’m sharing the five painted wood egg ideas I came up with. 🙂
Here’s what I used:

- Wooden eggs
- DecoArt acrylic paint in White
- DecoArt acrylic paint in Black
- Galaxy Glitter by DecoArt in Clear Ice Comet
- Small brushes
And here are 5 modern Easter egg decorating ideas.
1. Black Dipped Effect
2. All White Shimmer
For the all white shimmer, I painted an egg using white paint, then once that dried I used two coats of DecoArt’s Galaxy Glitter in Clear Ice Comet.
3. Lady Egg
For the lady egg, I used a fine-tip paint brush and black paint to paint a face design on to an egg. Once that paint was dry, I put on a thin coat of the DecoArt Galaxy Glitter in Clear Ice Comet.
4. Dipped White Shimmer Egg
5. Dipped Brush Stroke Black
For this one, I did a brush stroke effect. But I kind of hated it, so I decided to do a dipped brush stroke effect using black paint.
And here are some glam shots of all five final eggs. I think they look adorable, and this was a really great spontaneous craft session 🙂
