Chalkboard Paint Easter Eggs

I love Chalkboard Paint.  It’s multifunctional and is the perfect contrast for all the white I use in my decor.  I love Decorating Easter Eggs!  Check out my chalkboard paint Easter eggs.
I had some leftover chalkboard paint from various projects, like my Halloween Wreath.  I set my hard boiled eggs on a small sliver of toilet paper roll to keep my fingers cleaner…my kids loved that.  LOL. My little finger saving trick did leave a ridge along the edge of where the egg met the holder, but since it’s all about fun, it didn’t bug me a bit…neither did my sweet B’s.
If you’re more patient than I and use thinner coats you can probably alleviate the line…I’m not exactly a chilled crafter!  I like the results a little more than the process at time.  Yikes!  I hope that doesn’t disappoint you!  Needless to say, that’s why all my crafts are usually, SIMPLE!

 

I picked up some edible grass, green apple flavor and tossed it in the bowl.  My sweet B’s LOVE this stuff…even though it’s taste is bland and texture similar to astronaut food.  They’re all about having candy at their reach!

 

I tossed the hardboiled eggs on top of the grass and since they were all tucked in their beds, I had some fun decorating myself!  That’s the beauty of chalkboard paint, the craft fun lives on and on and on!
My package of chalk was all of 99 cents at Target and thinking of different designs was totally FUN!
So where am I keeping it!?!?  I set my bowl and chalk right smack dab in the middle of my coffee table…candy, chalk and eggs ALL!  And yep, it was ALL smiles in the morning from my sweet B’s!  In fact, I think these sweet eggs have had about a thousand lives already!  I’m always amazed by the creativity of children
Aren’t they DARLING! {Cowboys and Rangers are both represented here.}

 I love the simplicity of Little B’s sweet flower!

I know it’s old school, but I just think chalkboard paint totally ROCKS!  Definitely come back tomorrow morning and follow along with all the AWESOME egg ideas my bloggy friends have come up with…you’ll be in L.O.V.E. and totally INSPIRED.

    It’s very cute – but hardboiled eggs? You’re surely not eating these and they would spoil. Have you done them with eggs with the inside blown out? Would that work as well?

  2. Shannah @ Just Us Four says:

    These eggs are so cute! Love this idea and I bet the kids had a blast drawing on the eggs.

  3. Cute, cute, cute! What a delightful idea! Love the edible grass, too. I really want to try this. Love it – thanks so much for the tutorial. I’m not a patient crafter, either, so thanks for being honest about that. Now I know that I can do this 🙂

    Fun idea! I’ve seen wooden eggs at Hobby Lobby (in the wood crafts section) – I think I will use those so we can redecorate them every year! No worry about smell or eating chemicals too. 🙂

  5. What a fun idea. Would have never used chalkboard paint on eggs but I bet the kids had so much fun decorating and re-decorating! Pinning now!

    Love this idea! 😉

  7. This is so neat.

    So cute! We did this this year too! Our poor eggs started stinking though after about ten days. Next year I will try to remember to wait until closer to Easter – haha! We did them a little too far in advance this year.

    A week later and we’re still drawing on them…no stench yet! My sweeties really wanted to work with the real thing, but plastic eggs would work too as long as you watch the dry time. I wouldn’t recommend eating them just in case the fumes or chemicals from the paint, penetrated beyond the shell!?!? XO, Aimee

    Do you think the chalkboard paint would work on the plastic eggs? I would not want my family eating eggs that had been covered in paint and then sat out all day in a basket 😉

    • Aimee - ItsOverflowing.com says:

      Chalkboard Paint would work on plastic eggs, too. Just be sure to follow the dry time on your paint can. You will need two good coats. The paint can be found in spray or brush form. Spray would probably be easier for covering eggs, but I had the brush type in the garage and it worked great for me. My sweeties wanted to be a part of decorating “real” eggs so we used hard boiled eggs, but we definitely won’t be eating the eggs!!! 🙂 Good thought!!!

      XO, Aimee
