Blast Off into Easter With These Galaxy Eggs
One of the things we love most about Easter is the blank canvases that we get to decorate — EGGS! I mean come on, it’s a whole holiday dedicated to painting Easter eggs. Plus, we get to eat chocolate, wear watercolored dresses AND it’s spring time (hello warmer weather — so nice to see you). We’ve written posts on 100 egg-decorating tutorials in the past, so this year we’re adding to our list by creating galaxy eggs for our Easter tablescape using dark hues of navy, purple and black with splashes of gold and white. Pro tip: Head to Target to pick up this amazingly cute egg holder to show off your prize possessions.
Materials + Tools:
— black, navy, purple, gold and white acrylic paint
— paint brush
— short bristled paint brush or tooth brush
We bought these foam eggs from Target for $3. They look so realistic that everyone in the office was nervous when I was juggling with them. This is a great solution for painting eggs that you’ll want to keep year after year.
Paint a layer of black paint on the surface of your egg. Once it’s almost dry, add in splotches of purple and navy. When these colors are dry, grab a bristled paint brush and use short dabbing motions to create gold and white stars. Another option is to use a toothbrush, and flick the paint on using pressure from your thumb. This makes a great splattered look.
Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight.
We picked up some gold foil eggs from Target, but these are easily DIY-able too! Some gold paint or foil + Mod Podge would do the trick!
