Considering the amount of Christmas decor I have it’s a little surprising that I don’t really have any decor for January – March. Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day just haven’t been big on my decor radar, so I decided I wanted to so a little something to put out for Easter & spring.
I’m sure everyone knows that I prefer to make seasonal decorations that blend in with our home’s colors, and got the idea to make some Easter eggs similar to my color blocked pumpkins for fall.
Color Blocked Easter Eggs
What you’ll need:
- Wooden Easter eggs
- Painter’s tape
- Spray paint
This is a another quick project – start by wrapping half of the egg in painter’s tape (the half you want to keep plain wood). Make sure the edges are pressed firmly to the wood so no paint can bleed through.Next, spray paint the other half of the egg whatever colors you want! I went for a mix of sea foam, silver, and navy blue eggs. Since you have to hold the eggs while you spray them, make sure to wear gloves to protect your fingers.Now let them dry. Use an egg carton to set the eggs in, paint side up, so they can dry without messing up the paint. Spray another coat if it needs it – the lighter eggs did, but silver was good after only one coat.Once the eggs are dry, remove the painter’s tape and put them in a container. I opted for a mini clam shell bowl that I had to throw in a coastal feel.
Easy Easter centerpiece is done! And they look great on our new counters 🙂 Not bad for a few bucks! I’ll be keeping these around for next year..
