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 or projects on the to-do list, 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 on the fly.

Here’s what I used:

And here are 5 modern Easter egg decorating ideas.

1. Black Dipped Effect

For the black dipped effect, I used Frogtape and black paint to paint only the top portion of an egg. Yep, it’s that easy for this one. But I love the combo of the black and the natural wood.

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. This glitter paint is subtle. The glitter is a bit holographic, so it doesn’t hit you in the face.

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. You could stop here, but once that paint was dry, I put on a thin coat of the DecoArt Galaxy Glitter in Clear Ice Comet. I put this paint only on the painted eyelashes and lips, though. A little glam, a little draggy. Perfect.

4. Dipped White Shimmer Egg

I loved the overall white shimmer effect, so I decided to try a dipped effect on the bottom of am egg. I used Frogtape, white paint, and the Galaxy Glitter paint to “dip” the bottom of an egg. This one is a combo of number 1 and number 2 in this post.

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. You don’t have to keep DIYs you hate. 🙂

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! Not too shabby for a quick little 30 minutes while monster mo was at the park with Mike.
