Creative and crafty was my theme for DIY Easter decor this year. I ordered some wooden eggs and used chalk paint in pretty Easter colors.
I am excited to show off some Oriental Trading products I received. Let me show you how I used their wooden eggs to create the perfect farmhouse Easter egg decor.
Chalk paint is always a good idea especially on wood. I found some pretty Easter colors to use.
Oriental Trading sent me these Easter wooden eggs to play with in exchange for this post but all opinions are 100% my own. You can see my full disclosure here.
Painted Wooden Eggs
As I was browsing the Oriental Trading website I found these great wooden eggs that I knew could be super cute painted in fun Easter colors.
These guys actually made their debut in my vintage colander post last week but I did not write about painting of the eggs in that post.
I love these wooden eggs but wish they weren’t flat on the bottom. Although this made them easy to paint it doesn’t look quite right in the bowl. But I still love them and have thought of some more great ideas for these eggs. Such as:
- Small Easter Gifts – the top comes off and you could fit something small inside
- Egg cups for your Easter table scape. With a cute, short candle stick adhered to the bottom and the lid off, these would probably hold a real, hard boiled egg and be the perfect egg cup.
- Candle holder – Instead of the egg, use candlesticks to create a fun candle holder
I wanted a “basket” full of eggs so that is what I did!

Chalk Paint in different colors
Pencil with eraser
Remove the tops for painting.
Chalk paint is one of my favorites so I chose four different colors. I had a dozen eggs so I painted three eggs one color and moved on to the next color.
When they were completely dry I used the pencil eraser along with some white chalk paint to create polka dots. After sanding and distressing just a bit I used my Grunge Glaze to complete the farmhouse look.
I added some green shredded Easter grass then got these guys into their vintage colander. Don’t they look pretty?
I love them and am so glad I took the time to make something for Easter this year.
This wasn’t all I made from my Oriental Trading goods. Be sure to stop back to see the Easter wreath I created using the cotton plant wreath and some bandanas! You won’t want to miss it.
Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to pin this wooden egg idea for later!
