I haven't done any Easter decorating this year until just today. I've been seeing a lot of cute eggs posted and at shows, but it doesn't seem right to buy them when you could easily make your own! So I went down to our local craft store and bought some basic paper mache eggs to paint, got my favorite coffee (chai this time) and put a Focus on the Family broadcast on.
Here is a little "how to" on my Easter Eggs! You will need a couple stamps (I used an "S" and a vintage script stamp), paint (I used ivory & mixed a white and brown for the second color), sponge brush, small paint brush for speckles, and empty toilet paper roles. I started by painting half my eggs a light ivory and the other half a light brownish color. I saw this trick of cutting up a toilet paper roll to help the eggs dry on Pintrest.
Once you have your eggs completely painted, you can begin stamping or speckling. I used the smallest paint brush I had to put on speckles of the opposite paint color. For stamping, I painted the opposite paint color onto the stamp and slowly rolled it onto the egg. If the stamp did not transfer as well as I wanted, I touched it up with the small paintbrush.
I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!
Keeping it simple and sweet!
