Let’s have some ARTY FUN with our Egg Decorating Ideas this Easter! Earlier in the week we shared some rather cute and rather easy Unicorn DIY Eggs.. today, we have some arty DIY Galaxy Easter Eggs for you! You can use this wonderful galaxy art technique on both wooden eggs as well as blown out egg shells or even hardboiled eggs.. your call. We love working with egg shells, they are an amazing canvas to work on and so very Eastery. My kids are now old enough to blow out eggs themselves (learn how to blow out eggs) and it is all part of the Easter Egg Decorating process!
Supplies need for your DIY Galaxy Easter Eggs
- Paint Brush
- Wood Eggs (though you can make these with real eggs too!! Learn how to blow eggs)
- Gold Glitter
- Foam Paint Brush
How to paint Galaxy Easter Eggs – DIY Galazy Eggs!
Check out our short “overview video”, then read the step by step instructions below!
And now again in some detail – how to paint your own galaxy eggs!
Paint the wooden eggs black. This will take 2-3 coats. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Cut a sponge into small 1 inch pieces.
Add paint to a paper plate. Use a different piece of sponge for each color.
Dip the sponge into the paint and dab the sponge onto the egg. (tip: hold the egg up with a piece of toilet paper tube)
Allow colors of paint to dry before dabbing another color on top. Keep dabbing colors onto the egg until your happy with the result.
Use a small paint brush to draw small starbursts onto the eggs.
Cover an area with newspaper or do this step outside! Coat toothbrush bristles with white paint and use your finger to flick paint onto the egg to create stars and swirls in the galaxy. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Dip a foam paint brush into glue and dab the glue lightly onto the egg. Pour gold glitter onto the glue.
Shake off excess glitter and then use the foam brush to smudge the glitter. Allow glue to dry completely.
Your eggs are finished!
