I got a little carried away and technically there are 11 ways!
Starting tip:Paint your eggs open in half so you can put them on your finger to paint and they can sit on the ring to dry.
Nest tip: Get creative using scraps of paper, burlap, or twine and items that you already have sitting around.
1. Let’s start simple with an Antiqued White Egg. Pull out your craft paint and give it a couple coats of vanilla. Let each coat dry. Take your sponge brush still wet with vanilla and dip it into tan. Dob it around to get on your paper to get excess paint off and then dab around the surface of the egg. Once there are spots of tan covering the surface, Use the flat side of the brush to give the egg the texture of a real eggshell. Just press it lightly against the entire surface of the egg a bit at a time.
3. Paint Speckled Robin Eggs-Paint two coats of muted colors like cream, light blue and tan with a sponge brush. Use a paint brush or toothbrush to splatter paint uneven speckles in an opposite color.
Place small glue dots (the ones you buy at the craft store) all around your egg then dip them in glitter.
7. Sequin Covered Egg-Wrap a strand of sequins around your egg hot gluing as you go.
Well that was one Saturday filled with some Easter “eggs”citement! Anyone need some eggs? 😉
