Speckled Easter Eggs

2 Materials
Do you love the look of speckled eggs in Easter decor? It's really easy and VERY budget friendly to make your own! Read on to see how I made these!
Simple craft supplies found at Wal-Mart in the crafting section are all you need. Pick a paint for your all-over egg color, I chose Waverly's "Pool" chalk paint.Pick a darker color for your "speckles". I meant to grab paint but accidentally grabbed Antique wax. Thankfully it still worked!You'll need a paintbrush and of course eggs! These eggs are craft eggs that cost only $1.98 for 12!! They are found in the Easter section.
First, paint your egg the all-over color you desire. Allow to dry, which only takes a few minutes.
Don't they look lovely?! I left some plain blue because I liked it so much!
Thin your dark paint with a little water and practice "flicking" the paint brush on a paper towel until you get the hang of it. I lightly loaded my brush and then tapped it against my finger to get it to spray the paint onto the eggs.
Be sure to have paper under your eggs to protect your work surface. Allow the eggs to dry, then rotate and repeat "speckling" process until you have the entire egg covered how you like.
Ta-da! Pretty speckled Easter eggs that are perfect for your spring decor! You can read more about this, and see more pretty photos on my blog!
