Patterned Easter Eggs

Folk Art Easter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner and I wanted to make some pretty floral patterned Easter Eggs.  These will be part of my Easter table setting (coming next week).  I blew out some eggs a couple of weeks ago and they have just been sitting…  Waiting… for divine Eggspiration.

Bring on the Pattern

Got a wild hair and grabbed some permanent markers. Voila!  I did these all freehand while trying to throw a ball to McClain and keep Conlan from exercising his new found ability to crawl… off the porch.  Imagine if I had a stencil or even a reference pattern!

Easter Eggs that are Patterned

If using permanent markers I would strongly suggest to NOT eat the egg.  I wasn’t using hard boiled eggs, but I can’t imagine eating anything that smells like those markers do.  But, the markers make a quick and easy way to make colorful patterns on Easter Eggs.

If you want to see these eggs in their final table setting I’ll post a link here when it goes live next week.

  1. Your pretty Easter eggs caught my eye at the Morning Cuppa A Joe party – so pretty! I’m afraid they probably wouldn’t look that pretty if I freehanded with sharpies on my eggs. I ditto what Victoria said about your affiliate statement – that’s a good one!
