Make This: Decorated Egg Cups in 5 Minutes

By Brittni • Updated on 02/15/2024

Do you ever use egg cups?

I’ve literally never used them before, even though I think they’re pretty cool. So I went and bought a handful at World Market (at .99 each it was hard to resist) so I would have somewhere to put my eggs for Easter. Decorated or not. Now, I realize this technique has been done a hundred times at this point, BUT I’ve never seen it used on egg cups. So boo-yah.

Here’s one (very) simple way to make basic 99 cent egg cups look a little bit cooler…

how-to: egg cups diy

Using a porcelain paint pen (I like these), write messages, draw geometric shapes, draw funny faces – basically go to town. Let the cups air dry (72 hours according to the instructions on the pens – mine were dry to the touch within an hour or two though) and your eggs are ready to look a whole lot cooler sitting in those cups.

Also, if you want to make ’em a little more Easter-y, you can add bunny doodles or ‘Happy Easter’ notes. I just went with more everyday designs so I can use them year round. Honestly though, they’re so inexpensive, you could make different sets of these for every holiday.

Thanks so much for pinning my project onto World Market’s boards. I’ll be sure to link the egg cups up…couldn’t find them online when I last checked.
