Modern Easter Eggs in Graphic Patterns, Gold, and Navy

One of the most enduring Easter traditions, painting eggs is a always great family fun! These eggs usually end up with a typical look – pastel colours in abstract patterns, eggs dipped in dye, maybe some India ink. But becoming more and more popular are new and unique versions of the traditional eggs. Bold colours, stamping, metallics, colour-blocking….the creativity is really infinite. So we’re throwing our hat in on this Easter décor trend with some modern Easter eggs in graphic patterns, gold and navy – a fun update for the most traditional of Easter decorations.

Spray paint some eggs in blue and leave some white. The blue will take a few coats so patience is key here, be sure to let them dry completely between layers. We have a lot of snow right now (and it wasn’t too cold out, spray paint doesn’t like the cold) so we used it as a stand to hold up our eggs, but a block of Styrofoam will work too.

Use an ink pad to stamp multiple pictures all over the some of the eggs. When stamping, gently roll the stamp onto the egg, this will help leave a full image and stop the stamp from slipping. Do half the egg, let dry, and then do the other side.
