Make This: Metallic Egg Art Easter DIY

By Brittni • posted on 02/26/2013


Easter is coming early this year (March 31st), so I’m getting a jump start on this hip-hoppity holiday with today’s DIY. Hope you’re cool with that…

Kids have wild imaginations, but so do we adults, right? Especially us DIYers. So, I say we reclaim Easter for ourselves and make some easter eggs that we can be proud of. Grown ups only at the egg decorating table this year! Who’s with me?

If you’re game, my first recommendation is this DIY metallic egg art project. It’s really easy and soo fun to experiment with (make sure you have a lot of eggs).

Here’s how to make your own… To dye your eggs soft colors like mine, use this all-natural easter egg dyes recipe from BHG. OR if you’re lazy like me, head to your nearest Hobby Lobby, and pick up a set of pre-dyed eggs. Once your eggs have been dyed and dried (or picked up from the craft store, it’s time to start painting these bad boys with metallic paint pens. Get to it.

Need a visual? Here’s a photo step by step…

Yes, definitely – either hardboiled eggs or blown eggs.


If you do this yourself, would you use hard boiled eggs?

Metallic Egg Art Easter DIY from @papernstitch: cute!

Julie Grice (@savvyjulie)

Yes. It would totally work for kids too Tanya. I just don’t have any, so mine are looking a bit more adult. Minus that weirdly drawn bunny face. 🙂 Markers would work just fine…the color may run on washable ones but it’s worth a try. Good luck!


This would be a good option for toddlers to color the eggs sense paint can get really messy at this age. I might have to get some markers for them to use.
