Easter Egg Decorating Ideas - Galaxy

These mesmerizing galaxy Easter eggs appear more complex than they actually are! Making these eggs requires more creativity rather than technical skill; anyone can make this stunning creation.

Supplies Needed

  • Black paint
  • Colored paints: purples, pinks, blues, gold, and white
  • Sponge brushes
  • Soft paintbrush
  • Stiff paintbrush

How To Make Them

  1. First, you will need to paint your egg completely black. Make sure to cover the entire surface area – you may need to do 2 layers. Let this dry before going to step 2.
  2. Next you’re going to paint a swirly galaxy background on the egg. Swirl around your blue colors – this step should not be precise or neat. Then, dip your paintbrush into the black and swirl around the blues even more. Let it dry before step 3.
  3. Now it’s time to use a sponge brush. Dab your darkest blue color on top first, followed by your purples and pinks. Note: make sure you allow the paint to dry thoroughly before adding each sponge layer.
  4. Next, use a sponge brush in the gold paint and lightly add small patches of gold around the egg. You want to only have small areas of gold so you can see your other colors.
  5. Finally, it’s time to add the stars. Water down your white paint until you reach a thin consistency. Take the stiff paintbrush and dip it into the white paint. Splatter the white stars on the egg by pressing down and releasing the bristles with your thumb. Make sure to add the white stars all around the egg. Now you’re finished!
