DIY Chalk Eggs

Hi everyone! I’m so happy to be back at Handmade Success. Are you getting spring fever yet? Spring came early in Minnesota this year… none of us are complaining.

Today, I’m going to show you how to make chalk eggs. Hard boil your eggs before you paint them. I used Plaid folkart chalkboard paint in hot pink. Paint your eggs with a couple coats of paint, letting them dry in between.

When they have dried, use chalk to decorate them… fun!

    What a lovely easter project to do with the kids! I cannot wait to visit the local craft store and bring on the chalk paint! My only wish right now is that there is a riot of colors available and not just pink and green!
