DIY Easter egg plaque
Is this cute or what?! I just can’t stop won’t stop with the Easter DIY’s, ha! This is adorable decoration to have around for Easter and the best part? It’s so inexpensive and easy to make and hardly takes any time at all! If you want to make one of these for your home just follow the instructions below for how I went about creating mine!
What You’ll Need
- Some Easter eggs that open long ways (down the side) I found some at the dollar tree CLICK HERE to see.
- A plaque or a canvas to display the eggs on. I happened across the one I used at Wal-Mart.
- Some paint. I painted all of my eggs white first and then painted them a color after a coat of white was on them. You’ll need whatever paint colors you want to use for your eggs (it’s obviously a personal preference).
- A blow Dryer to help the drying process along
- A hot glue gun to glue the eggs to the pallet when you’re finished painting
- Some paint brushes (I also used a fan brush to do the gold speckles on my eggs with is optional depending on what look you’re going for).
Let’s do this!
Take however many eggs you’re going to use for your plaque and separate them (laying the side you’re going to use flat onto the surface where you’re going to paint them. Paint each one white for a base coat. I painted serval of mine white but I just used 5 on my plaque.
Next gather the paint colors you would like to paint each egg. I had no colors in mind really, I just looked through my paint collection and picked out a bunch of colors I thought would look pretty. It really just depends on the look you’re going for when it comes to the colors you choose.
I painted each egg a different color (it took more than one coat) and I used the blow dryer to help the drying process along.
After each egg was painted, I chose another paint color for each egg and dry brushed that color on top of the first color I used. I did this to add some texture to the my eggs.
Then, I took some gold paint I had and put some into a small container, added a dab of water and blended until the mixture was even.
After the mixture was blended, I dipped a fan brush into the mixture and while holding it over my textured eggs, tapped the fan brush with another paint brush to speckle the gold paint onto the eggs.
I personally like this look (of dry brushing and speckling the eggs because it adds a unique look and some texture) but it’s not for everyone. Just paint your eggs however you see fit. Personally I like a more modern/ abstract look.
Lastly, plug your hot. glue in, take the packaging off your plaque and place the eggs onto it where you want them. Once your eggs are completely dry (use the blow dryer to help the drying process along) take the hot glue gun and glue each egg onto the plaque where you would l like it.
I turned each egg up-side-down and lined the bottom inner layer of the edge with hot glue (A LIGHT AMOUNT) just enough to ensure it would stick but not too much it would bleed through a lot onto the plaque (because that wouldn’t look god, would it)?
After that YOU’RE DONE!
