These decorated Easter eggs are inspired by pointillism art, which is a painting technique based on applying a series of small dots strategically placed to form an image. To preserve your eggs for seasons to come, watch our 1-minute video for the quick tutorial on how to blow out an egg.


  • Eggs

  • Sharpie Water-Based Paint Markers in Pastel Set, $16.99, 

  • Stickers or adhesive clip-art


  1. Prep your eggs for a smooth surface by gently cleaning each one individually with a damp sponge.

  2. Place a sticker on the eggshell, smoothing out any wrinkles with your fingers.

  3. Using a Sharpie marker, lightly dab dots onto eggshell surface expanding out from the border of the sticker. Allow to dry completely before peeling off sticker.
