To make my own speckled eggs for Spring decorating I started with a bag of fake eggs. They look pretty real! I added an Amazon affiliate link below.
Using Rustoleum spray chalk paint I gave the eggs a quick coat. Putting the eggs in a cardboard box works great for this craft because the eggs roll aroud from the pressure of the spray paint.
Now to get the speckles! Grab a toothbrush and plastic knife. Dip the toothbrush bristles in brown chalk paint and drag it over the knife...going away from you.
Now let's decorate with our eggs!! First I grabbed a footed bowl. I placed a moss wreath on top. I filled the center with paper.
Then I arranged the speckled eggs in the center of the bowl on top of the paper.
I wrapped a piece of grapevine garland around the edge of the bowl to make it look more like a nest. .
To finish up, I filled in any spaces with preserved green moss. It looks pretty and hides the paper in the bottom of the bowl.
Lastly, I found the perfect spot to display my painted eggs...on my kitchen china cabinet.
