I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but mine is FINALLY starting to feel like spring. Since Easter is early on the horizon this year, I figured I’d start whipping out a few Easter inspired crafts including this Easter egg specimen art! It’s easy to make and you can even get your kids involved decorating the foam eggs!!
Easter Egg Specimen Art Supplies:
- Darice 10 x 10 Unfinished Wood Panel
- Foam Easter Eggs
- Multiple Colors of Craft Paint & Brush
- Hot Glue
- Darice Easter Bunny and Carrot Felties
- Styrofoam Cutter or Knife
Step One. Start by painting your unfinished wood board with paint. I chose pink Americana Chalk Paint for my project and used a foam paint brush.
Step Two. After the panel was painted, I took a foam cutter and cut my foam Easter eggs in half. The foam cutter just warms up and melts the foam where you direct the wand. If you do not have one of these, simply use a knife and carefully cut in half. I only needed 3 out of the 4 eggs that came in the packet.
Step Three. From there, I painted my eggs. First, I painted the base coat of paint and let dry. Then I dabbed on an accent color onto the egg and gently blotted it around the egg. I wanted to give it a nice “hand dipped” effect.
Step Four. After the eggs are all painted, hot glue them onto your board.
Step Five. Next, I used some Darice Felties to add a little fun to the specimen art.
I thought it added a fun little aspect to the Easter egg art and makes it kid friendly decor.
