Spring is upon us and I am SO ready for it! To get in the spirit, I spent a relaxing Sunday creating these DIY painted Easter eggs. Of course as I was doing this project I had a great view outside of all the snow still falling down (PLEASE LEAVE). I have a whole bin full of paint and I also wanted to experiment with the speckled paint technique that I used on some of the eggs. I went for a more neutral color palette, but still wanted to incorporate some Easter-like colors.
Paired with a cute basket that I thrifted, I can’t wait to style this in my new home!

- Wooden Eggs
- Paint (For the eggs I used Sunkissed Peach by Apple Barrel, Ivory by Apple Barrel, English Navy (that I mixed with Jet Black) by Apple Barrel, Granite Gray by Apple Barrel, Autumn Brown by Delta Creative, Rainy Day Gray by Anita’s, Antique Maroon by Americana. For speckles I used Pure Gold by Folkart and Jet Black by Apple Barrel).
- Paint Brush
Step 1: Paint the Top Half of Each Egg
Start by painting the top half of the egg and set aside to dry for a few minutes. By doing this, you will have a dry spot on the egg to hold on to.
These are all my eggs with the top portion painted.
Step 2: Paint the Rest of the Egg
Holding the dry top part of the egg, paint the bottom portion. Let dry and then paint the bottom as well.
Step 3: The Speckled Technique
I really liked the speckled look that I did on a few of my eggs and it’s incredibly simple!
Using a toothbrush, dip the tip into the paint. Brush your thumb against the bristles of the toothbrush making the paint spatter on to the egg.
The small box that the eggs came in worked perfectly so that the paint didn’t splatter everywhere.
That’s it! Such a super simple DIY painted Easter eggs project. This is such an easy project and was super relaxing to do. It could also be super fun for kids as well!
I love how all the colors work together and especially love the speckled look on the grey and peach eggs.
I hope you enjoyed this project and would love to hear your comments below!
