Hello there! I’m Lydi from Lydi Out Loud and I’m so excited to share a fun Easter DIY project with you today! I absolutely love when the time of year comes to break out the spring and Easter decor… especially after a dark and cold winter like this one has been in Ohio!
- Darice 3 pack Unfinished Wood Eggs
- Darice Garden Party Assorted Print Cardstock
- Pink, Green and White Craft Paints (I used Americana Multi-Surface Satin in Pink Cadillac, Turf Green and Cotton Ball
- Darice Foam Brushes
- Decoupage (not pictured)
- Scissors (not pictured)
- Sandpaper if necessary (not pictured)
Using a foam brush, paint the wood eggs in the colors of your choice. On the green egg, I painted one thin coat to create a color stain-like effect so that some of the wood grain still shows through. For the pink, I slightly mixed pink and white paint (but not all the way blended) to give a more dimensional, watercolor-like effect and painted with 2 coats. For the white egg I painted 2 healthy coats. If there are any rough spots or splinters lightly sand them away once the paint is dry.
Apply a thin coat of decoupage onto the back of the cardstock pieces and the wood egg surface and place paper on the wood egg. Once in place, apply a thin coat of decoupage over the entire surface of the egg. Gently press down and smooth out any bubbles with your finger (you may have to do this a couple of times during the drying process depending on how wet the paper is). Once fully dry, apply 2 more coats of decoupage onto the wood eggs for extra protection (allow to dry 15 minutes in between coats).
Check out these beautiful painted eggs that can be displayed as ornaments for Easter.
