Botanical Easter eggs

Painting Easter eggs is such a fun tradition, and we’re always looking for new ways to decorate them (check out how to decorate Easter eggs with dried flowers here!). For more florals in our Springtime crafts, we’ve created a tutorial for these botanical Easter eggs.

Check out the full tutorial below to see how you can spruce up your Easter eggs this year!

 

I’ve been wanting to try these black botanical Easter eggs since last year when I became obsessed with Molly Peacock’s book about the 18th century paper artist, Mary Delany, The Paper Garden. In fact, I even suggested we start a book club with this title and then I just NEVER followed through. Because it’s my blog and I can do whatever I want. So I bought Easter eggs, painted them black, lost them, then rebought and painted new ones last week, AND THEN found last year’s. Always, huh?! Well, if you need any botanical Easter eggs, you know where to find them. These are a great idea if you like to spend a bit of time on an art project. I realize the detail is a bit more advanced, but you can simplify with easier color blocks and shapes to cut down on time. These could be great for kids in this simplified way. I give some suggestions below.
