Black And White Decorated Eggs

Decorated Eggs Are Something Strangely Interesting

You can use blown chicken eggs to make some really lovely decorated eggs to sit in a bowl on a dresser or coffee table. I made some symmetrical Swedish inspired designs to put on my Welsh dresser in my kitchen.

I chose to use simple black and white colours so that they stand out and will not clash with my décor, as I have quite a monochrome home. These are really fun and easy to make.

Not just for Easter. Make these decorated eggs at any time of your and for any ocsasion. They really add an interesting splash of colour to a corner of your home.

  • White Eggs Blown
  • Wallpaper Paste

Equipment

Making Patterns for Decorated Eggs

Step 1

Firstly, start by cutting out a 3mm wide strip of black paper using the larger scissors. Then cut two more 3mm strips of paper using the pinking shears. The strips need to be long enough to fit around the egg length ways.

Step 2

Next, paint the egg with wallpaper paste where you want to place the strips of black card. Then stick the strips onto the white egg. Now, you can print out any pattern or design of your choice, then use it as a template and trace it.

Step 3

Next, cut out a 10cm square of black paper and fold it in half. Put the straight edge of the template against the fold and secure it in place with a paperclip. Then use the small sharp scissors, cut around the template and remove the paper clip. This should give you a symmetrical design.

Step 4

Now, paint the egg with wallpaper paste, then place the design onto it centrally. Then carefully smooth out the design. Do the same for the other side of the decorative egg. Then seal the whole thing using acrylic varnish.
