diy painted faux easter eggs
Big thanks to Waverly Inspirations and Walmart for sponsoring today’s post. As always, our opinions belong to us. – DIY Painted Faux Easter Eggs
I attempted to hand paint a personalized canvas for my sons kindergarten teacher last year; it took me several hours and finally, out of frustration because it looked like a kindergartner had painted it, I ended up tossing it and getting her a gift card instead. Ha! When I saw Two Twenty One’s cute post with these faux eggs from Walmart, I knew I wanted to give hand painting another try for the last Waverly Challenge but this time I had inspiration from my friend Jamie’s darling globe that I recently purchased so viola! These cute painted faux Easter eggs were born:
DIY Painted Faux Easter Eggs
Materials needed, all purchased from Walmart:
- Waverly Inspirations Acrylic Paint in pretty pastels
- Waverly Inspirations Stencil (I didn’t end up using it but you can try it!)
- Paint Brushes, fine tip (found in the craft section)
- Faux Eggs (found in the craft section)
I painted a few stripes on the first egg in blue then painted over it in the white opal finish and it gave it a pretty instant glow. I got more confident after my striped egg and went on to try my hand with florals.
DIY Painted Faux Easter Eggs – Large Florals
To paint the larger florals, inspired from the globe:
- Paint egg in one color.
- Once dry, paint a contrasting color over in several oval shapes.
- Add leaves in coordinating hues.
- To finish them off, add touches of the opal white over the ovals to create a rose-type flower.
- Add an extra brush of white on the leaves.
If that is too complicated I painted another super easy style, as shown in the last photo below:
- Paint egg in one color.
- Once dry, paint small circles over egg but spread apart (kind of like polka dots.)
- Add painted leaves.
- Add a dot of a coordinating color in the center.
- Done and done!
One of my flowers messed up bigtime so I ended up painting over the whole egg in blue then added thick brush strokes of pink and purple; it looks kind of mosaic and pairs well with the florals I think!
