I know I’ve professed my love for Martha Stewart Craft Paints. I mean, I LOOOOVE THEM! If you looked through all the DIYs on this blog, I bet at least half of them use these paints. So it is only fitting that they are the stars of Day 3 of Easter Egg Week! Introducing DIY stenciled silhouette easter eggs!
My latest 12 Months of Martha box came with the prettiest palette of vibrant paint colors and a super cute set of adhesive holiday stencils that I used to make these eggs. I used paper mache eggs for these.
I’m all about skipping the hardboiled eggs for ones that will last for many Easters to come!
1. Use your brush to paint each egg with a coat of craft paint. Let it dry and add a second coat.
2. Place the adhesive stencil on the front of the egg, pressing with your fingernail around the inside edges to make sure the design is flush against the egg and no paint will seep through. Use your foam brush to apply 1-2 coats of white paint in an up and down blotting motion. Be careful to not get paint outside the stencil!
I love these eggs bursting with color! That little carrot one is particularly sweet don’t you think?
