Tutorial: DIY Chalk Paint Easter Eggs
Start by spraying your plastic eggs with primer. I did this to make sure my chalk paint adhered well, since I want these eggs to last for several seasons.
To do this, place the eggs in a small cardboard box and spray one side with a thin layer of primer. Let the paint dry completely, roll the eggs around a bit, and spray another layer. Repeat this process 3-4 times until you have fairly consistent coverage around the whole egg.
Next, paint on a base layer of the pastel chalk paint.
I found it easiest to place the plastic eggs in an actual egg carton while I let the paint dry.
Using a paint pouncer, add another layer of chalk paint. The pouncer will give the paint better coverage, without leaving brush lines on the eggs.
Let the paint dry. Aren’t these pastel Easter eggs so pretty?
Using a small paint brush and copper acrylic craft paint, flick paint onto the eggs. I just pulled the paint brush bristles back, and let the paint fly! Now your eggs have speckles.
And that’s how you make your own specked eggs. These Easter eggs are perfect for spring decor, wreaths, or just simple tablescape decor.
