Personalize your Easter eggs with designs and patterns that fits your spring decor. Faux Easter eggs are budget friendly and last year after year.
Dying Easter eggs is an age old tradition. This year I am going to pass on the egg dying and all that comes with it. There will be no stained hands and spilled dye cups this year! This year I am painting my Easter eggs.
And lets be honest who can eat 2 dozen or more hard boiled eggs before they expire?!
I have no clue how my mom did it when each of us kids brought home a dozen hard boiled eggs from doing an Easter egg hunt at my Grandma’s for Easter. That was 4 dozen eggs! And yes we hunted for real eggs! It was so much fun!

The first thing you are going to want to do is pick a color palette. I am really loving the trending colors of coral and mustard right now! I decided to plan my Easter color scheme around those colors this year for a fun twist on spring decorating. I added in some mossy green and some navy blue to create this bright spring look.
Now its time to start painting!
Useful tip – Using various sized paint brushed will help you create different looks on your DIY painted wooden Eggs.
I did a mix of solid painted wooden eggs and pattern painted eggs. The solid painted Easter eggs really features the vibrant colors and the patterns add a cute twist!
They don’t have to be perfect to look beautiful!
One of my favorite eggs is the Royal blue striped egg. I started painting the egg and ended up running out of paint on my brush. It gave the egg a vintage distressed look that I ended up really liking.
I couldn’t paint a perfectly straight line on my green egg. Any time I try to stay steady my hands end up shaking more. Now I have this cute wavy lined egg.
My obsession with ferns and botanicals has spilled over to my painted eggs!
I hope you enjoyed this and I hope you paint some eggs!
It is just as much fun as dying Easter eggs as a kid, its just less messy!
