DIY/Holiday | Paint Splattered Easter Eggs

Do you remember doing this as a kid? Loading up your paint brush with your favourite colour paint, raising your arm high and furiously striking it down, flinging the paint onto that crisp white piece of paper. Well what if that crisp white piece of paper were a crisp white egg instead?

These paint splattered easter eggs are a ton of fun and a great flashback to mucky art days as a kid. And the bonus – they look great?
But just a warning – make sure you’re outside or in a well covered up area in clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Paint will be a flyin’.

Materials

  • White eggs, blown out and dried
  • Paint – various colours
  • Paint brush
  • A plastic bottle cap (like from a 2L pop bottle)

Steps

Paint Splattered Easter Eggs | Squirrelly Minds1 Prep your eggs and your paint splattering area (if you’re inside, paint will get everywhere). Choose and prepare your paint colours.
2 Place your egg on an upside down bottle cap. Dip your brush into a paint colour. You want a generous amount but not so much that it’s gloopy and drooping off. Place the brush over the egg and tap the handle hard. Alternatively, you can also flick the handle, or go crazy and swish it about like you’re Harry Potter.
3 Repeat with desired colours and allow to dry for 1-2 hours.

You can experiment with colours a bit. I also painted the entire surface of an egg with copper coloured paint, then splattered it with black paint. I liked the look so much that I splattered black paint on white eggs too and they’re now my favourites.! Not very eastery, but very artistic.

    I have to say, Tan – every easter I feel bombarded by easter egg tutorials, but i LOVE this one. Especially with the black paint. They’re fresh but edgy. Well done :)
