Easter eggs, but make them fashion. That time of year is upon us, and I’m always on the hunt for a new, fun, and yet easy way to decorate my Easter eggs. There are some STUNNING tutorials out there on the web, but I’m not trying to spend a week creating one batch of eggs. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Today’s Easter DIY is simple with a capital “S”. It doesn’t require any dye, so no stained counters, hands, or large messes to clean up either. With only two supplies, you can make these cute DIY animal print Easter eggs in no time!
For these DIY animal print Easter eggs, I picked out 6 easy animal print patterns to create, but you could definitely find others to replicate as well! A black and gray cheetah print would be adorable too!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Sharpies – I used brown, black, green
- Brown Hard Boiled Eggs
- White Hard Boiled Eggs
Each pattern uses a different technique, but all of them are very simple to make! Some are more time consuming than others, but worth it in the end!
To Make the Zebra Print Eggs –
Using a black sharpie, create long, semi-squiggly lines on a white egg. Create some that branch out on the ends too. Alternate the sizes and directions of the lines. Fill in the whole egg and color the lines in completely.
To Make the Cheetah Print Eggs –
Using a black sharpie, draw irregular shaped “circles”. Fill them in with the black sharpie. Create smaller irregular “circles” around the larger ones. Once your egg is covered, use the brown sharpie to outline the larger “circles” only. Leave the smaller ones plain.
To Make the Cow Print Eggs –
Using a black sharpie, create “blob” shapes on a white egg. Cover the whole egg and fill in each “blob” completely. Alternate between larger and smaller “blob” shapes.
To Make the Tiger Print Eggs –
Using a black sharpie, create long, squiggly lines on a brown egg. Create some that branch out on the ends too. Alternate the sizes and directions of the lines. Fill in the whole egg and color the lines in completely.
To Make the Snake Print Eggs –
First off, let me say that trying to create a snake print is no easy task! I chose not to use dye for these eggs, so I did what I could without a green background! Using a green sharpie, create “diamond” shapes around a white egg. Change the shapes and sizes of each diamond slightly, but try to keep them all going in the same direction. (Points of the “diamonds” going up and down). Color each diamond shape in completely. Using a brown sharpie, add an outline on one corner of each diamond, trying to stay as consistent as possible on all of the shapes.
To Make the Giraffe Print Eggs –
Using a brown sharpie, create small “blob” shapes on a brown egg. Alternate the shapes and sizes of each “blob”, but keep them less defined and crazy than the cow print “blob” shapes. Try to maintain the same spacing in between each “blob” around the whole egg. Fill the shapes in completely with the brown sharpie.
Once you manage to wrangle all of these DIY animal print Easter eggs into an Easter basket, it’s sure to be a WILD time! 😉
