Watercolor Letter Easter Eggs DIY

I did a version of these last year that never made it to the blog so when I saw Easter on the calendar (it comes so early this year) I knew I wanted to share this project. These Watercolor Letter Easter Eggs aren’t only cute and easy to make, they also make a great placecard holder. Display them at your Easter Table or hide them around for friends to find and piece together a secret message.

Material: Letter stickers, hard boiled eggs, small bowl, water, paint, paint brush
Step 1: Carefully and firmly apply one sticker letter—we used a 1″ tall helvetica sticker alphabet found at the local office supply store—to a hardboiled egg
Step 2: Using water colors or gouache (gouache is a thicker form of watercolor) paint and swirl your favorite colors onto the egg allowing colors to blend and bleed, controlling any excessive paint dripping with a paper towel
Step 3: When the paint has dried completely, carefully peel back the sticker
Step 4: Repeat 1-3 until you’ve spelled your Easter message! (And if you’re looking for a way to play a practical joke at dinner, why not fill your eggs with jello?)
