Hey Everyone! Today we are breaking all the rules and making DIY Modern Easter Eggs using black and white! Bye Bye pastels! You have had your time to shine since who knows when. If you are looking for a fun way to decorate this easter, give these DIY modern black and white easter eggs a try. Bonus- you can put them out next year too.
Here is what you will need:
wooden eggs | Americana Acrylics in Snow White and Lamp Black | paintbrush
Start off by painting the wooden eggs with a base coat of Americana Acrylics Snow White. It shouldn’t take more than two coats to get complete coverage.
Now it is time for designs! Sticking to the black and white color pallet, I used Americana Acrylics in Lamp Black for all of my designs. For this egg I decided to cover the entire egg with tiny brush strokes. Instead of actually using strokes, I just touch the edge of a flat brush to the egg over and over again trying to aline them in rows and columns for some sense of order.
Here I am just creating a row of large polka dots across the middle of the egg. When creating polka dots, I often like to dip the back of my brush into the paint and use that rather than the bristles to draw the polka dot. I also made another polka dot one using this technique but instead made lots of tiny dots all over the eggs.
I hope that you are beginning to see that the possibilities are truly endless! On this egg, I just free hand painted half of the egg on a diagonal. On some of the others I painted thin stripes over half of the egg, painted the two ends, and added some +’s on one too!
I hope you were inspired to upgrade your easter decor this year and incorporate some modern designs into the mix! At first I was really hesitant to replace the traditional Easter pastel color scheme with Black and White but I could not love it more. It has taught me to try new things and don’t get too easily stuck in my ways. What is a project that you have made and avoided the traditional route? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
