Sharing how to make pretty DIY speckled eggs to decorate for Spring including instructions & pictures.
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.

Instructions for How to Make DIY Speckled Eggs
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.
How to Paint White & Brown Speckled Eggs
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.
Personalizing Speckled Eggs
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 farmhouse table isn’t set I have been storing the eggs on our dining room fireplace 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?
