Primitive Easter Eggs



I am in the crafting mood! lol. Seems like I just can't get enough crafts done this week. Today, I made some more Primitive Easter Eggs for my Booth #555.( Coming soon to my Etsy shop also!)

If you'd like to make some adorable Easter eggs in the prim style, here's how I done it.

I started out with some plain, brownish crafting eggs. They look like this and I buy them in bulk packages of 40.

Then, I paint on a first coat in an acrylic color. Then on a few, I dry brushed on a few streaks of another color, to give it a more prim look. I stick with base colors such as greens, browns and reds.
  
Then, to add a country look. I load a toothbrush with some off white and fling little dots of color all over some. This was a great tip I still recall from my high school art teacher!


Next I draw on my sayings consisting of, "fresh eggs, free range, 5 cents, ect." Or I will stencil on some stars using my Delta stencil paint. And then let all that dry.





And finally, all that is left to do is match them up in sets of two, package them in a celo bag and tie them off with a bit of homespun fabric.



And wa~la. Here's some cute Primitive Easter Eggs ready to go into my Booth #555 at the Peddlers Mall.

Here's some more pics of them finished. I don't know why I can't keep all my eggs in a basket. lol.

  3. Love your primitive Easter eggs! I have a bunch of wooden eggs in different colors that I got off of Etsy years ago and I put them out each Easter and they just sit there...maybe if I try painting them and jazzing them up a bit, they'll sell better! Thanks for the idea! I like that they are grouped in bags of 2, they look so stinkin cute. Great job my crafty friend!!! :)

    1. Thank you so much! The wooden eggs, I'm sure, would look awesome all dollied up! And I figured by the groupings of two, people could pick out their favorites to make a basket full. So far, so good. Thanks again!

  4. Hi Lisa

    If you would like to visit my blog when you have some time, there is something waiting for you over there - and there are no rules attached:)

    I love Easter, I'm addicted to the smell and taste of the chocolate.

    Your decorated eggs are wonderful, I usually do one window display for Easter and I'm going to use your idea.
