Painted Wooden Easter Eggs

A few years back I bought some wooden eggs for a craft party I was hosting. I bought a few more than I needed, so I was left with some unfinished eggs in my basket of craft materials. I brought them out this year, and decided to do a quick and easy DIY to help decorate for Easter.

And yes, I’m majorly late on getting this post out…but better late than never!

TIME TO COMPLETE

15 min to prep, and a day or so for spray painting.

MATERIALS

  • Unpainted wooden Eggs (like these from Joanns)
  • Frog painters tape
  • Spray paint
  • Empty egg carton
  • Bowl or basket for displaying

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1:

Take 1 piece of tape (approx 6″-7″ long) and wrap it around the center of each egg. Making sure the edges are smooth and tight.

Step 2:

Take 3 pieces of tape (approx 3″ a piece) and cover up the remaining portion of the egg that isn’t taped off.

Step 3:

Place your eggs (tape side down) in the egg carton, and spray paint the eggs. I did 2-3 coats, letting it dry in between coats.

Step 4:

After they are fully dry, unwrap the tape. Display in a bowl or in a basket! Simple and clean…just the way I like them.

 

A modern Easter

Easter is just around the corner. And as much as I love me some classic easter decorations like the bright colored easter eggs, and plastic eggs filled with candy…I’m drawn to something a little more subdued this year. So here are a few things that are inspiring me right now. A good mix of decor, products, and DIYs all in that modern flare!

How are you going to decorate this year?
