Hi Friends! I am still working on centerpieces for our Ladies Night Out at church so my house is covered in cute Easter decor. For part of the centerpieces, I wanted to use these wire baskets I found at the dollar store but the plastic eggs were way too bright and cheap looking to go along with my rustic theme. So of course I had to paint them! Since I had to do 12 baskets I didn’t want to have to hand paint every egg so I decided to use spray paint. This is an easy and fast Easter egg makeover!
Not so bad for some Dollar Tree baskets and eggs, huh? Here’s a quick tutorial on how I did it.
Materials for DIY Easter Egg Makeover
- plastic eggs
- different colors of spray paint – I used Rusteoleum Seaside, Rusteoleum Oregano, Rusteoleum Strawflower, and Rusteoleum Hammered spray
- chalk paint or acrylic paint
Then I sprayed each section – one seaside, one strawflower, and one oregano. Allow them to dry.
To add speckles to them, I got a few different colors of chalk paint (pink, yellow, purple) and an acrylic brown – it’s just what I had on hand. I put them all on a plate and used a toothbrush to flick the paint on. It’s messy but kind of fun! Just dip the toothbrush in a color and with your fingers flick the bristles of the toothbrush over the eggs. I just did random colors all over.
That’s really all there is to it! You can add as many speckles as you want and in whatever color combinations. Once they are dry you can snap them back together and use them anywhere for decoration! Mine are part of the centerpieces (click here for Easter egg basket makeover tutorial!) and then added on a picture frame with my DIY hand painted Easter wood signs (click here for the tutorial!)
If you make some, let me know where you used them!
