Easter Is Hard To Decorate For

Look how lovely these pastel painted Easter eggs look. Displayed in a nice bowl, they really set the scene for a lovely afternoon tea.

I always find Easter is a bit tricky when it comes to decorations. So here is a perfect project, that is easy and fun and very relaxing.

You really don't need to blow the eggs first. Blowing the eggs is when you poke a hole in each end and blow the inside of the egg out. Personally I just hard boil them and then let them cool and decorate them. I don't really want to keep them all year. I will just have fun making a new batch next year.


What We Need To Make Painted Eggs

  • Eggs, obviously
  • A variety of pastel coloured paints
  • Some fine paint brushes
  • Egg cartons
  • Egg cups
  • Sheer ribbons

Start Making Painted Eggs

Decide how many eggs you want in your display. Boil the eggs and allow them to thoroughly cool. You can use the egg carton to help support the eggs as we are decorating them. Or maybe cut the ends off and make tiny little egg seats.

Painted Eggs

Now we can paint the base coat of the eggs. I am using pastel colours as this seems the most appropriate for Easter. Pale pinks, blues and pastel purples are so pretty together.

Let the paint dry.

Some colours and eggs may need another coat. So get a cup of tea and just relax and take your time painting another coat.

Let the paint dry thoroughly again.

Painted Eggs Decorations

Now we can add some design details. We can use a fine paintbrush to add cute dots and swirls and shapes. Add stripes and details to one side of the egg first. Then move on to the next egg.

By the time you finish the other eggs, the paint on the first egg may be dry enough to turn it over and finish painting the other side.

Make sure to let the paint dry to avoid the risk of smudging.

To Finish Our Painted Eggs

Finally, we can finish our painted eggs by cutting lengths of pretty ribbons and wrapping the eggs. Tie the ribbon around the eggs and finish with a bow.

Arrange the eggs in a bowl or basket for a magical Easter decoration.
