Easy Painted Easter Eggs in Bright Spring Colors

I showed you these cute eggs in another project before I showed you how I made them.  If you’re a procrastinator like me you might be looking for some quick projects to make for Easter that will have a big impact.  These easy painted Easter Eggs are just the thing and you can make them in an afternoon.

Easy Painted Easter Eggs – Supply List

I bought this bag of eggs and round balls from a garage sale for pretty cheap.  You can also find them in craft stores or online.

Start by spray painting your Easter Eggs in the fun colors you choose.  I painted mine on paper in the front yard and just rolled them around as I lightly sprayed them.  You could use craft paint too if that’s what you have.  Then I moved them to a dry spot of paper until they were completely dry.  I kind of went crazy but you could paint as few as you like.

When the painted Easter Eggs were dry I got busy with the white craft paint decorating them with cute designs.

A few others got dots of Aileen’s Tacky Glue and a dusting of clear glitter.

I wasn’t using the right kind of brush and I’m not too steady with detail fine painting but still I love how they turned out.  It sort of reminds me of the designs I got with crayon before we dyed our eggs as a kid.  Imperfect but perfect 🙂

They look so good nestled in the green moss.  So bright, and a great reminder of Spring weather to come.

This is how I first displayed them after they were painted.  I love bubble glass!

Then I used them in an Easter Tablescape that I posted recently. I’m not great at setting a table but I did pretty good, if I do say so myself.

You can also display them on a cake stand nestled in a bed of crinkley Easter grass.

Aren’t they easy to make and decorate any way you like?  The chevron one above is really cute but I think my favorite is the pink polka-dot.
