Easter is four days away and I couldn’t resist one more DIY for those last-minute egg decorators out there. You know who you are. So here’s one last Easter project, inspired by the graphic elements of graffiti art…

Here’s what you’ll need: blown or decorative eggs (can use hard-boiled as long as you don’t eat them afterwards) / acrylic craft paint / paint brush / metallic paint pens

How to make it: Follow the instructions here from my project for Easter eggs inspired by impressionists – painting random patches of color around the entire egg. NOTE: Instead of leaving space between the patches of color, like in the Painterly Easter Eggs DIY, cover the entire egg with paint. Once dry, outline the random patches of color with a metallic paint pen, creating different shapes. Add decorative elements like polka dots or stripes in different areas. Wait for the eggs to dry.
