ombre painted EASTER eggs

March 27, 2014

I am back at it again this week.  Blue, blue, and more blue in my DIY projects.  The blue hues are it for me right now, with turquoise being the feature color today.

I had it planned out that I was going to paint these Easter eggs last Spring.  I had the supplies and my colors picked out, but it never came to fruition.  In the meantime the supplies have been stored (neatly) away in my craft space and the project has been in my notebook, unchecked.  I finally got to it, as we can see, but I changed up my colors.   Instead of using the pastels I had originally intended on, I went with the ombre effect using turquoise.  This is my first ever ombre project (yes, you read that correctly, first ever) and I just love the results.

You’ll need:

  • craft paint in your color plus a couple close shades and the color white, for mixing
  • paint brush & tray
  • paper mache eggs
  • mini wooden pots
  • letter stickers (I started with blue and changed my mind to gold!)
  • glue gun

Paint your eggs in the ombre effect.  I have to admit, I have avoided trying out ombre anything because it seemed too time consuming for me–all that mixing and combining paints to get a range of shades of a single color.  I like quick.  I like easy.  But I found out there is nothing to it, really!

Hot glue the painted eggs to your little wooden pots.  Then add you letters.

Now isn’t that a fun and trendy little Easter display?  Enjoy!
