doodle easter eggs

IMG_9098
I've got lots of Easter projects to share and to start with is a SUPER simple way to create pretty eggs. Forget about color and keep things simple with black and white doodles!

I started by poking a hole and blowing out the yolk.

and then I went to town with my favorite supply ever- a black sharpie!

I doodled my way across the surface of the eggs with flowers, paisleys and all kinds of simple designs.

The outcome is a very simple and pretty Easter egg.

  7. I love these. I was laying in bed thinking of something simple I could make to take to my sister's at Easter. I may do them with color on the egg first and then the black.
    Thanks!

  14. I love this idea, but blowing out the yolks is sooo hard! Still lovely to look at!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm so glad you shared this idea. I was cleaning out my work areas the other day and found 3 eggs whose yolks I blew out YEARS ago (I can't believe how long they have survived in this box), and I didn't know what to do with them. Now I know!!

  40. I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com

  41. Those are so ingenious. I did something similar with a sharpie on a dollar store plate at Christmas, but never thought to do it on Easter eggs. I will have to give it a try.

    Can you use the Sharpie (safely!) on regular boiled eggs that can be eaten later?

    ReplyDelete
  48. You are a woman after my own heart--doodling on eggs! I love the watercolor ones too. How inspired!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hi Alisa! I'm so excited today... it was many many years the I didn't draw anything anymore! Your eggs inspired me and I tried again!

  50. You say to blow out the yolk. Would there be any reason you couldn't do this with a hard-boiled egg?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wonderful...love it...just black and white... :-)))) Stephanie

  52. These are just so gorgeous and creative! I love them and may try some tonight! Thanks. It will be a relief that all I need is my trusty Sharpie after what we went through Sunday trying our hands at Star Wars Easter Eggs.

  53. I would want to put a fine iridescent glitter on them or maybe some chunky on some too.

  56. I had fun knowing more about the history of Easter Eggs. Also in my craze for this fancy craft idea, I came up with few more Easter activities that are related to Easter eggs. Please allow me to share this on my Pinterest Easter board? Thank you so much! I asked my friends, what will you do with your eggs this Easter? Lol!

    if you are looking for a quick and easy way to punch a hole in the shell, use a dremel tool with a small grinder attachment. Makes perfect round holes. Put one hole at the fat end of the egg and one at the narrow end of the egg.
    Use an aspirator to push the contents out of egg.
    Really quick and easy.
