Chalkboard Easter Eggs

Hello!  I recently read somewhere online that you can preserve hollowed Easter eggs by covering them with thinned Mod Podge inside and outside. I haven’t tried it yet, so I don’t know how well that works, but I am going to try this year. While decorating my eggs, I came up with the idea of painting them in chalkboard paint so I could easily reuse and redecorate them, in case I do want to mod podge inside. This is how I made my chalkboard eggs.

Step1

Begin with hollowed out eggs that have been washed and dried.

Step2

I couldn’t find a wide variety of chalkboard paint bottles, so I bought black, turquoise and purple. I mixed some the turquoise and purple with regular white acrylic paint to make softer shades and it worked fine.

Step3

I painted one half at a time.

Step4

Here are all my eggs, painted and dried. Now they’re ready to be decorated with chalk!

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Please let me know if you have any questions! 🙂

    What a great way to decorate eggs. I like that they can be personalized by drawing on them with chalk.

      Thanks so much! It isn’t hard at all. You just need to thin the mod podge with some water, use a straw or a funnel to get it into the egg though the bottom hole, put your finger over the hole to cover and shake!

    So pretty and creative! Not sure the Mod Podge preservation method would work for me because I’d probably break them in storing them. Like your idea better! Stopping by from Hump Day Happenings!

      I haven’t coated them in mod podge yet, but they’re not too fragile after being blown-out. I haven’t been too careful with them and they’re still going strong! 🙂

    These came out great. I picked up some chalkboard paint to do the same thing but when I got home I realized it was an ugly tan color & not black so it didn’t happen. Thanks for sharing with us at Pin-Worthy Wednesday!
