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!
DIY botanical Easter eggs
- acrylic paint
- paper mache eggs
- decorative moss
- an egg carton
- The Paper Garden: An Artist Begins Her Life’s Work at 72 by Molly Peacock for some lovely inspiration
- I chose to use paper mache eggs because I didn’t want to worry about cracking. Paint them black with acrylic paint.
- Draw flower shapes with a pencil and paint them in in solid blocks. I painted all the shapes first on all the eggs before moving onto detail. I used shapes inspired by Mary Delany’s work and made a Pinterest board that you can use as a reference.
