Decorate your Easter Eggs in a unique and colorful way this year - splatter them with paint! I love this alternative to dying Easter eggs. Try this no skills required way to decorate your eggs with fun spring colors.

I've always been bothered by the smell of traditional Easter egg dying kit. Thus I was inspired to take advantage of the paint I had on hand, leftover from other projects.

I used leftover wall paint sample jars, but I'm sure craft paint would work just as well. Just simply water down the paint a bit for the perfect splatter consistency. If the paint is too thick you’ll have a hard time getting it to fling off the brush. I know because my arm was sore the next day, after trying without watering down the paint ;) haha!

The best thing about this project idea is that you really can’t mess it up! This freeing, stress-reducing approach is great for kids too. What's more fun that flinging things around and creating a mess?

Just make sure you cover your work space, or work outside, because paint will be flying everywhere.

The white of the eggs provides a great contrast for fun pastel colors.

Each egg will be unique! All with their own splatter look.

    They are beautiful! Thank you for a great idea. (I agree about the smell of dye. It's been years since I dealt with that but can still remember how awful it was)

    Those are very pretty!! 👏 I would use fake wooden eggs, myself. Then they are not fragile, and can be easily stored and used year after year. 👍
