Shabby Easter Eggs

Thank you for sharing!
Easter egg decorating made so simple. Use aluminium foil and craft paint to transform plain plastic eggs into elegant shabby eggs to display for Easter.

I have an incredibly easy Easter egg decorating craft to share with you today.  Turn your plastic eggs into beautiful Shabby Easter Eggs!



Plastic Easter Eggs

Aluminum Foil

Craft paints

Paint Brush

This is one of those projects that would be finished in 20 minutes, if it weren’t for the drying time!   And the best part is you probably have all the supplies you need to create these fabulous Shabby Easter Eggs for yourself.


Cut a piece of aluminium foil a little larger than the egg you want to cover.  Crinkle it and wrap around the egg.  Paint with your favorite color.   To add a more ‘shabby’ look to my eggs, I put a small amount of black craft paint in a jar and watered it down, then lightly dabbed each colored egg.

Beautiful!   Simple!   Easy!

Pin It!

    I love these! And you know it's my kind of craft when it's quick and easy! Such a creative way to change up some plain plastic eggs. Also, I love the bowl you have them in.

    When I saw the photo of the shabby Easter eggs I thought this is going to be hard. LOL it is about the easiest craft that I could do. The eggs look so lovely in the bowl.

    What a great way to use plastic eggs!! I always feel like those are a waste cause they break so easy! Love the bowl too, super pretty!
