Eggs are mini canvases ready to be turned into any type of creation. For this artsy Easter egg idea, we were inspired by Georges Seurat, a famous pointillism painter. He created magnificent works of art just by placing small dots next to one another. Now, we are no Seurat, but we decided to take a stab at his technique and even play around with the use of negative space. Eggciting! Let鈥檚 get decorating these easy no-dye Easter eggs.

Bonus! Don鈥檛 use stickers, just use dots! Use different paint pens to create a landscape dot painting just like Seurat himself. Believe me, he would be proud.
