DIY – Speckled Eggs

DIY - Speckled Eggs on Spring Table

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.

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.
