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 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 eggs!
- papier mache eggs
- spray paint in spring colors
- gold paint pen
Make Time: 5 Minutes per egg (plus drying time)
Step 1: In a well-ventilated area, spray paint all of your eggs in various colors. These days I obviously love everything in rainbow order, so we tried a pastel rainbow for spring. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Step 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! Or write words, etc.
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 part of Sugar & Cloth’s new entertaining line and they’re perfect for all kinds of stuff. Condiments, kids’ snack plates, photo styling, candy dishes, and on and on. Grab yourself a set here! xoxo
