I wanted to have more natural looking eggs to use in my Spring décor. Eggs are the perfect reminder of new life that begins every Spring. I created these ceramic speckled eggs after unsuccessfully trying to paint some cheap plastic ones (trust me, it was bad :). This is pretty much the easiest craft project ever.
DIY – Speckled Eggs
*this post contains affiliate links for more information check out disclosure page here*
- ceramic eggs (Easter Eggs – Set of 6 – Host Your Own Ceramic Painting Party)
- brown acrylic paint and a toothbrush (Apple Barrel Brown Acrylic Paint Set Bundle – Nutmeg Brown & Burnt Umber (2 Ounces Each))
- fine tip sharpie (Sharpie Pens, Fine Point (0.8mm), Black, 2 Count)
I found these simple white ceramic eggs at my local craft store for a dollar each. They looked great by themselves but they definitely didn’t have that natural look I was going for.
I poured some brown acrylic paint on a paper plate and using a toothbrush I flicked some paint on each egg to make look like a real bird’s egg.
I turned the egg in a circle to ensure that the whole egg was speckled. It only took a short time for the paint to dry.
Using a fine tip sharpie I decided to add each family members name on it so I could use them as a place setting on our Easter table.
Although there is some debate between Jason and I as to whether the names are absolutely necessary I think it makes the eggs a little more special :).
I placed the eggs in some antique glass compotes and added a little moss to each cup to make it a little more Springy.
When the table isn’t set I have been storing the eggs on our dining room mantel. They look so pretty lined up in a row.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my DIY speckled eggs! Do you have any spring craft projects you are working on?
