I love to paint just about anything! Paper, walls, furniture, sheets...the list goes on! With Easter coming up, I decided that instead of dyeing Easter eggs, I'd paint them. This is a really quick and easy DIY that anyone can do. Place them in a decorative bowl or on a cake stand with moss and flowers and perhaps a vintage bunny or duck to create a lovely little environment...the perfect centerpiece for your Easter brunch table!
- White eggs
- Acrylic Paint or Food Coloring (Be sure to use food coloring if you plan to eat them)
- Paint brush
- Bowl or Cake stand
- Fresh Flowers
- Flower tubes filled with water (so the flowers don't wilt)
- Hard boil the eggs so that if they crack, they won't run.
- After the eggs are boiled and cooled, place them back into the egg carton (this makes it really easy to paint them)
- Create a color palette so that you can paint each egg differently and they will still coordinate beautifully. I used a palette of pretty, Spring-inspired colors like pinks, greens and aquas. If you are using acrylic paint, mix with a little bit of water (not too much or the colors will be too drippy).
- Using a paint brush, paint the eggs! Don't be too concerned with the design or if the colors run together. This project looks best when it is very painterly and abstract.
- Place moss into a bowl or on top of a cake stand. Once the eggs are dry, arrange them on the moss and place flowers in water tubes and a vintage bunny around it to create a delightful Easter scene.
