Jumbo Painted Easter Eggs
A prop I was really excited to have were these jumbo painted Easter Eggs. This is a little DIY as part of five easy photo-session ideas for Easter. I liked them because they stand out in the picture. I looked at several craft stores and couldn’t find giant eggs for a good price and with colors I wanted. While browsing through Target, I saw giant Easter Eggs. They were perfect and only $3 per egg. They were right next to a sticker decorating kit but I chose to paint them. The colors I picked were coral, robin egg blue and lavender all with white polka dots. Some of the paints I already had and some I bought at Jo-Ann Fabrics.
I fished around my house for a small circular object to trace and found small circle stickers. For two of the eggs, I traced them with pencil and painted around the circles. This worked pretty well. Since, these were accessories for my photos I wasn’t too worried about the shape of the circles. The last egg I put a bunch of stickers on the egg. I painted around the stickers first then after the paint was mostly dry I painted the stickers white. These circles were perfectly round and gave the egg some texture and definition. I actually painted these with my daughter one afternoon. It was a fun craft to do together.
These jumbo painted Easter Eggs are very light weight which made it easy for me to carry. The downside to being light weight is they are easier to tip over. So, I had to set them up and reset them up a lot. Overall I am quite pleased with how they turn out and plan to use them again.
