Paint your Easter Eggs with

Easter is the ideal time to crack open the arts and crafts supplies and get creative. So grab your kids and get crafting! It's also a great way to bring the Easter Egg Hunt to another level - simply hang some of these pretty eggs around the house and garden. A beautiful way to decorate your home for Easter.

What will you need?

Polystyrene Eggs

Acrylic Paints

Paint Palette

Paintbrushes and a jar of water


Ribbon or string

A cocktail stick or wooden skewer

Posca pens or markers

PVA Glue


Table cloth or old newspapers to protect your table (marbling inks can stain!)

Step 1

  • Choose your colours and pour some acrylic paint into a palette.


Step 2

  • Begin to paint any pattern you like.
  • We used pastel coloured acrylic paints for these eggs as they are perfect colours for Easter!


Step 3

  • Leave your eggs to dry in an old egg container.


Step 4

  • Once dry, using your Posca pens or markers, add some fine details as in our Blossom tree design here.


Step 5

  • Add a large hole at the top of the egg.
  • Put some PVA glue into the holes with a small paintbrush.
  • Using the skewer, push the tied string, wool or ribbon through the holes.
  • For a bit of extra colour and fun, why not also add some feathers.
  • Brush over the hole again with PVA glue and let dry.


That's it, the egg is done!
