Rainbow Sprinkle Easter Eggs

I’m reeeally excited about this Easter egg DIY I’ve created for you all! I’ve been in such a mega “party mode” lately that I haven’t really began to think of much else for the blog. Shame on me, I know! Speaking of parties — I do have some kitten themed decor DIY’s that I’ll be throwing your way this month so be on the look out for those later. For now, back to THIS project. With Easter Sunday less than a week away, I came up with this decorating idea late last night. I skimmed all over the net to make sure it hasn’t been done before (at least not to my knowledge). I couldn’t wait to share it. Eek, SPRINKLES! These were a lot of fun to decorate with my little one. Festive and so dang easy. Let’s hop to it! See what I did there? 😉Easter egg ideas diyFirst, you need some hard boiled eggs. I actually baked 2 dozen of them in the oven for the first time (thanks, Google) and it worked like a charm. If you choose to bake yours too rather than boiling, preheat your oven at 325 or 350. Fill a muffin tin with an egg in each cup and bake them for about 20-30 minutes. You may want to do a small test batch beforehand, depending on your oven. I was actually on the phone with my bestie as I was baking these and explained to her how much of a newbie I was at this process. This is her go-to method so she’s basically a pro at it. With a few minutes left on the timer, I slightly opened the oven to check on them and they were hissing at me. She said quickly, “Uhh, they’re done, hurry and get them out!” I asked, “Are you sure? I still have like 7 minutes left.” Yes, she was right.. one of them had already cracked so be sure to check on them if you aren’t positive! Submerge them into a large bowl with ice and cold water for about 10 minutes. Once they’re cooled, dye those babies any which way you want. This was Livi’s favorite part, she did so good helping me come up with some pretty vibrant shades. Now it’s time to add the sprinkles!Rainbow easter egg diyDiy easter eggsHere’s what you need:

  • Pre-dyed Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Mod Podge or Elmer’s Glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Rainbow Sprinkles

With your paint brush and Mod Podge, brush a thick layer on the wide bottom half of your egg. The sprinkles won’t stick as well if the Mod Podge is too thin. Easter eggs diy mod podgeRoll the Mod Podge covered half of the egg around in your bowl of sprinkles until there are no gaps. If it helps, dab the egg into them instead. Rolling too much can make some of the sprinkles fall off. Set the egg aside to dry and on to the next. Side note: I poured a separate bowl of sprinkles from the original package. You don’t want to eat these after you’ve rolled glue all up in it, ha. Just toss them in the trash when you’re finished, or store them away for another crafty project later if you want.Easter egg diy ideasThat’s it! So adorable, right?? I love how the rainbow sprinkles look against the bold colored eggs.  Diy rainbow easter eggsI had fun photographing these cuties. They make a sweet little addition to your kiddo’s egg hunts (as long as they know not to eat the sprinkles off!), or you could use them each year as part of your Easter decor if you prefer to hollow out the eggs instead. Sprinkle diy easter eggsDiy rainbow sprinkle easter eggsHappy Easter, y’all!
