Who says you need messy dyes and paint to decorate Easter eggs?! Recently I challenged myself to utilize everyday things that I had on hand to decorate a dozen eggs!
As I have shared in the past, I love using white out pens in a variety of projects! Why not use it on the surface of my eggs. I started by painting the eggs with acrylic paint and then doodled over the top with a white out pen.
Believe it or not q-tips are a wonderful supply to use in all sorts of projects. You can dip them in paint and use to add polka dots OR use them to pull paint away from a surface.
I covered my egg with a light layer of acrylic paint and then used q-tips to mover around the paint and pull paint away from the surface to create a design.
Bubble wrap is one of the best ways to create an interesting surface! Simply cover the bubble wrap in paint.
Roll the egg across the surface.
There is nothing better than using simple lettering and handwriting as subject matter in creative projects! Using a sharpie pen I journaled all over the surface of my eggs.
In my opinion scribbling is TOTALLY overrated! Use colorful scribbles with permanent marker to cover the surface of eggs.
A ball point pen goes a long way in my world! I used a two pens from the junk drawer to sketch all over the surface of my eggs.
The result- 1 dozen creative eggs!
***Please note- I always blow out the yolk from my eggs (I don't like hard boiled eggs!!) and typically make a quiche or a frittata. I like that my eggs can last beyond Easter and become more like little pieces of art.
