Chalkboard Easter Eggs

A few coats of paint is all it takes to turn ordinary eggs into mini chalkboards. The best part? You can wipe away your designs and start from scratch whenever you want a new look.

steps

  1. Paint egg surface with two coats of chalkboard paint, letting dry between coats. To make half-painted eggs, wrap middle of egg with stenciling tape, then paint desired area. Let dry on pinboard.

  2. Use chalk markers to draw on simple designs, patterns, and springtime messages. If you make a mistake or want to change the design, erase chalk marks by gently wiping egg surface with a wet paper towel.
