Different Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs

This year I decided to try something different rather than dye my Easter eggs. I really wanted to create details and I knew I couldn’t get them if I used dye… so instead I hand painted them with tool paint! I also embossed names and other designs on the eggs too! I’m an impulsive embosser, but I didn’t realize I could emboss an Easter egg until I read Martha’s April issue!! I found these little planters at Michaels and  they work perfectly to set the egg inside to use as name placements for Easter brunch ; ) Read below for the supplies and the how-to… Oh and these are just for look!
No eating ; ) This “Eat Good Food” egg was inspired by our recent trip to Full of Life Flatbread ; )

Eggs, tool paint, different size paintbrushes, mini planters, mini stamps, embossing tool, embossing powder.


For a how-to on embossing click here. To paint the easter eggs first hard boil them and then, using acrylic tool paint, create fun designs! The paint will dry pretty fast and you can use the embossing tool to help. Have fun!!
