DIY Pastel Painted Eggs for Easter

Sometimes the best holiday decor is the simplest.   While I don’t decorate for every holiday on the calendar, at Easter I love to incorporate a simple touch on my table or mantel.

This year I had a dozen wooden eggs just calling my name.  You can find these at any craft or hobby store.  For mine,  I was thinking a little spring color and a little typography would be just the thing for these sweet little eggs.

I mixed up some pastel colors using off white chalk paint and several bright chalk paint samples.

Once I had the colors I wanted, I used foam brushes to paint each egg.  I did three eggs in each of the four colors.

Once they were dry, I pulled out my alphabet stamps and stamp pad and got to work.

I stamped each message on a set of 3 eggs, so now I have a set of each for my own decor and a set of each to give as gifts!  The imperfections in the stamping add a personal touch.

These are so sweet nestled into some grass.  You can pick up faux grass at your local hobby store and tuck it into a container.  If you’re really ambitious you can grow your own grass in a pretty container!

Add a little moss in a dish or shallow bowl to create a nest and tuck in your eggs, making sure your stamped message shows.  If your eggs are flat on the bottom,  you could stand them up, too.
