Today, I’m bringing you the easiest, fastest, cheapest painted eggs for any Easter celebrations you have coming up! And the best part, it all starts at the Target Dollar Spot!! HOLLLLAAAAAAAAAA. 

Easter is less than a month away and while we don’t celebrate Easter, I’m still all about teaching the traditions and cultures other religions have, because I think it’s important for my children to know what’s happening in their surroundings, and be well rounded. Knowledge has no bounds, and I’m totally fine with teaching my children about other religions!

Christmas is a great example of this! We always go all out and decorate and do all the fun things associated it with it, and same with Easter and other holidays that aren’t necessarily part of our religion. We do the egg hunts, eat all the yummy egg-shaped candy that fills all the grocery stores, and maybe even venture out to see the easter bunny. Is it me, or is that thing just uber creepy? I don’t know why, but every time I see one, I definitely get the heebie jeebies.

Another fun thing we do is decorating the house! I think it’s always fun and festive, and I’m all about it if it gets my kids excited! Which is where this lovely tutorial comes into play!

I decided to take some plain white craft eggs that I found at the target dollar spot (HELL YEA!), and turn them into a chic, decorative centerpiece for my table. I feel like this could also be a fun centerpiece for any Easter events you have planned!

1 nap time sesh, 4 different bottles of craft paint, a paintbrush, and the eggs. You guys, it’s too easy to not be able to create this!

Things you need:

  • 1 bottle of black acrylic craft paint / Find it on  Amazon!
  • 1 bottle of metallic rose gold acrylic craft paint / Find it on Amazon!
  • 1 bottle of white acrylic craft paint / Find it on Amazon!
  • 1 bottle of blush pink acrylic craft paint / Find it on Amazon!
  • 1 dozen of craft eggs (I got mine at the dollar spot in Target for $3!) – If you don’t have a Target near you, or are an Amazon Prime pro like me, you can find them here!
  • 1 paintbrush to paint the base of each egg (If you choose to do designs like I did, you are going to want another smaller, finer paintbrush to paint those) / Find it on Amazon!

Directions:

Paint each egg with the big brush and let them dry one by one. My eggs had a tiny hole in the bottom so I could fit a bamboo skewer in it perfectly to paint while not getting my hands dirty! See if you can get ones like that so you can get through them faster!

 Luckily, acrylic dries really fast, so once I had all my eggs painted in the base colors, I moved to making cute little patterns! These are just random ones I chose, but you can make any little pattern that comes to mind!

Let that dry, and you’re DONE. Nothing is easier that painting some cute little craft eggs from the dollar section at Target, and sprucing up a little spot in your house with these adorable little things. And I think they add such a fun and chic spin!
