When Design Studio South and I set up our Pottery Barn Easter tablescape, we wanted to challenge the tired, expected spring pastel palette that we see too often. These chic, chalky Easter eggs are ridiculously easy (it’ll take all of 5 minutes) and inexpensive — they added just the right element to our table, and can help give your crazy, artificial looking plastic eggs a simple makeover.
• Plastic Easter Eggs
• Stone Spray Paint
Lay out your plastic eggs. Open each egg and place the halves in a line.
Choose your paint colors. Tip: Select a paint with a texture, like stone (which is what we used here). The paint’s speckling gives each plastic eggshell a very au-naturale look.
Spray with your paint and let dry — that’s it!
Now celebrate with a glass of wine — you deserve it! In a matter of minutes you’ve crafted some seriously stylish DIY Easter eggs that are easy on your wallet and gorgeous on your table.
