Check out this tutorial on an easy and quick Easter egg makeover to turn those cheap looking plastic eggs into rustic pretty Easter eggs.

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 so that they were pretty Easter eggs!  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 a super easy and fast Easter egg makeover!

This is how the eggs started out…DIY Easter egg makeover tutorial

Not so bad for some Dollar Tree baskets and eggs, huh?  Here’s a quick tutorial on how I made these pretty Easter eggs!

Materials for DIY Pretty Easter Eggs Makeover

I started out by opening all the eggs and laying them out on cardboard.pretty Easter eggs

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.  DIY Easter egg makeover tutorial

Then on some of them, I sprayed the Rusteoleum hammered spray on and a cool crackled look happened.  I loved it!DIY Easter egg makeover tutorial

That’s really all there is to it to make pretty Easter eggs!  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 were put in a new painted easter basket and set (click here for Easter egg basket makeover tutorial!) on top of a picture frame where the glass is covered with brown dollar tree wrapping paper.

I also added these easy and cute DIY hand painted Easter wood signs that I made.

On another table, I placed my wooden cross decoration that I made out of upcycled materials.easter cross decor

The night turned out beautiful and we were able to use the decorations again at our Easter service.

If you make some, let me know where you used them!
