We always have so much fun coming up with creative ways to decorate Easter eggs. We’ve also used just about every material…wood, foam, plastic, and real eggs, too. This year, our designer Meagan came up with a super cute idea — carrot and strawberry Easter eggs!
This is a very simple DIY craft. And it’s a great craft for kids, too! We’ve listed all the tools and materials you’ll need below along with the pattern and instructions at the end of this post.
Painting eggs is a classic Easter activity for kids. Of course it’s fun for adults too! But as an adult, you may also be interested in using Easter eggs as home decor. For example, we once created these Easter egg place cards. And another year, we made these painted tissue decoupage eggs.
We have been trying to move away from using foam eggs in the studio, though. So for our strawberry and carrot Easter eggs, we used spun cotton eggs, courtesy of Smile Mercantile. This is the first time we have used spun cotton eggs and we are happy to report that they are very easy to paint!
Ready to craft your own carrot and strawberry Easter eggs? Just follow our simple tutorial below. If your kids are joining in on the fun, we would love to see what paint colors they chose and how they designed their Easter eggs! Remember you can always email pictures to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can message us photos on Instagram and Facebook.
