I suppose someday soon, the kids are going to be old enough to object to all of my crazy no-dye Easter egg ideas and just want to dye eggs the gold old fashioned way. But today is not that day!

I love these modern Easter egg patterns, because I finally got smart this year and used papier mache eggs so that we can reuse them year after year. These are simple and fast and a new take on an old project, but they’re super fun nonetheless.

And I love that the pattern ended up kind of looking Matisse-ish. Let’s make some modern gold Easter egg patterns!

How to Get Saturated, Colorful Easter Eggs

For this particular project, you’ll find that the Easter egg patterns look best on saturated, bold colors. And there’s a special way to get your eggs nice and colorful!

The trick is twofold. First, I recommend using faux, papier mache eggs for this project. They take color extremely well and they last year after year.

Secondly, I recommend using spray paint to color your Easter eggs to attain that bright saturation. Our complete guide to spray paint Easter eggs will tell you everything you need to know!

The Best Pens for Creating Patterned Easter Eggs

And for that bright, shiny metallic gold, you’ll need my favorite gold pens.

There are so many metallic paint pens on the market, and after having tried many of them these are still my top favorites.

The Sakura Pen-Touch Paint Marker has a nice even flow, and the color is a beautiful bright gold. It holds up over time as well, and doesn’t tarnish or fade.

I used the medium tip for this project but they also have fine tips that are great for delicate projects.

How to Make Modern Easter Egg Patterns

It’s a simple, two-step process. Here’s how to make your own modern Easter egg patterns.

Make Time: 5 Minutes per egg (plus drying time)

  1. In a well-ventilated area, spray paint all of your eggs in various colors. Here’s our guide with everything you need to know about spray paint Easter eggs. These days I obviously love everything in rainbow order, so we tried a pastel rainbow for spring. Allow the paint to dry completely.
  2. Use the gold paint pen to draw on your pattern. We created shapes similar to these and they came together really well on the eggs. You can choose any pattern you like! See our tips above for using our favorite gold pens.

Easter Egg Display Ideas

That’s it! Just two steps for these babies! And because they’re papier mache you can store them after Easter and bring them out again next year to use as decor.

I love the little trays that you see in all of the photos — they’re technically for food but I also love using them for display and decor. Condiments, kids’ snack plates, photo styling, candy dishes, and on and on. Grab yourself a set here!

You could also just put these in a simple little basket with some Easter grass, or nestle them into a floral centerpiece on a spring tabletop.
