While the kids were painting their salt dough ornaments – I was painting my own eggs. Who says painting eggs is just for kids?!
Here’s what you need: I found 2 1/2″ wooden eggs on amazon (here), some leftover Rustoleum stain in classic gray and the same Sharpie oil-based paint markers that the kids were using for their project (here).
Stain your eggs your desired color and let dry completely. Using the paint markers, go to town making all sorts of fun designs. I found that on some areas of the egg, the paint really seeped into the egg and I had to go over it a couple times to make it pop. I’m assuming if you sealed the eggs after staining you wouldn’t run into this problem. Between the kids salt dough eggs and my wooden eggs – we’ve officially painted the obligatory Easter eggs for the year!
