How To Decorate Easter Eggs



You create these impressive modern decorative eggs with a few other items from the craft box and your own freehand artistic style. Choose a colour palette of a few similar colours to keep the theme and unify the different looks. Try blowing your own eggs first and then letting loose with a few paints, stickers and decorations.    

You’ll need 
Blown eggs
Alphabet stickers
Chalkboard paint
Spraypaint
String
Decorative felt strips (with sticky back)
 Metallic pencils
 White and/or silver ink or paint pens
Also required: newspaper or old sheet; paintbrush, candle and wooden skewer
 
Personalised eggs 
1. Use the alphabet stickers to spell out a name.
2. Twist one end of a wooden skewer into the top of a candle until it stands straight up by itself. Now place the egg on the other end through the larger hole to create a stand. Follow the instructions on your spraypaint can and spray the egg until it’s the desired colour.
3. Once dry, carefully remove the stickers. If you want the inside to be a different colour to “natural eggshell” carefully colour in the sticker part with a white paint pen. You can try painting it a different colour before you put on the stickers and spraypaint, but there is a chance you will peel off the original paint with the sticker.
 
Fishscale egg
1. Paint the egg black with chalkboard paint using the “egg stand” as mentioned in step 2 above.
2. Once dry, use a metallic pencil to carefully draw a fishscale pattern on the egg starting from the base.   

String-wrapped egg
1. Paint the egg with chalkboard paint using the “egg stand” as mentioned in step 2 of “name eggs”.
2. Once dry, wrap string around the egg and tie off. Place on the “egg stand” again and spraypaint until the colour changes.
3. Once dry, carefully remove the string.
 
Felt strip egg
1. Spraypaint the egg using the “egg stand” as mentioned in step two of “name eggs”.
2. Once dry, peel off the backing of the felt strip and stick onto the egg. 
  
Silver handdrawn decorative egg
1. Spraypaint the egg using the “egg stand” as mentioned in step two of “name eggs”.
2. Once dry, use a silver paint or ink pen (or any other colour of your choice) to draw a pattern all over it.
