Chalkboard Easter Egg Decorations DIY

Do you have Spring fever yet? You just might after checking out this super easy, and super fun craft idea for Easter.

I’ve used Americana Decor® Chalky Finish paints and a number of different projects and materials, but this is one of my favorite DIY’s. Perfect for a fun and interactive Easter decoration and craft idea with the kids.

These Chalky Finish paints aren’t just for big home decor pieces. I used them on these simple wood shapes, and they turned a wood egg into an instant chalkboard egg. That’s the beauty of these paints: 1. no primer necessary, 2. because of the nature of the paint, they create an instant chalkboard surface, 3. they come in a variety of pretty colors.

Americana Decor Chalky Finish paints for Easy Chalkboard Eggs Craft

 To make these fun chalkboard eggs, I used:

  • Wood egg shapes
  • Wood candle cups
  • Americana Decor Chalky Finish paints (I used Delicate Yellow, Fortune Green, Lace White, Remembrance Purple)

I painted the eggs and the candle cups, each a different color. I thought the candle cups would be perfect in green, for an Easter grass effect.

One coat did the trick. Warning, your hands do get a little messy painting the eggs, but it cleans up easily with a little soap and water.

After they were dry completely, the fun began!

I used colored and white chalk to decorate each egg. If you want to change the design, simply wipe off with a little damp cloth, and start over.
