Make This: Super Easy Easter Egg DIY with Sharpies

DIY to Try // Easter Egg Sharpie Doodles

So, it seems like nearly anything and everything you can possibly imagine has already been done to Easter eggs this year. Or last year, for that matter.

BUT there’s still a little room to make it your own, right? So I grabbed a permanent marker and went to town on some plain hard boiled eggs. Kind of in the same vein as the DIY metallic Easter eggs I did last year…

I created random designs and little doodles – gems, triangles, hatch marks, lines, and curly q’s. Basically anything that came to my head. It was fun to just let go and treat each egg as a paper napkin that I’d doodle on at a restaurant.

I also made a few nameplate eggs that would be great for an Easter dinner party. If I made them again, I wouldn’t add those random lines underneath each name, but oh well. I don’t hate ’em.

You can go the brown egg route, which I always love because they kind of have a dyed feel to them without having to do anything….

Or you can go the extreme minimalist route (which is my favorite option) and use regular white eggs, still hard boiled of course…

If you had a carton of eggs to doodle on, what would you draw? Random geometric shapes? A few portraits? Patterns? I’d love to know.

Hi Nancy. I wouldn’t recommend eating them if you’re using a permanent marker. BUT they do make food safe, edible ink markers that would be perfect for this if you want to eat the eggs afterwards. Here’s a link to the pens:
