Easter is a few days away, so I have an easy egg DIY for you! I’ve seen these beautiful botanical eggs before and wondered how they did them. Well, I’m here to tell you it is sure easy! PLUS I have a free printable so you can just print the pretty images out and you can make this right away. Let’s get started!
First off, you might want to dye your eggs (they’d honestly look great on white eggs too). We used the most basic egg dye and I let Don go to town and he had 100% creative freedom. It was a MESSSSS though! Lol!
I put the eggs on Styrofoam with toothpicks sticking out so that the dye would dry evenly. The color on the eggs was gorgeous! It turns out that an impatient 3 year old quickly dunking the eggs in a bunch of colors turns out stunning eggs. And we only cracked one!

Now its time to add the flowers. Here’s what you need:
- eggs (we dyed white eggs. Dying brown ones gives a more jewel colored finish and is fun to try!)
- Mod Podge
- paint brush
- free printable botanical flowers- sign up below to have them emailed directly to you!
Step one- cut your flowers and butterflies out. It took me about 45 minutes to cut them all out. Watch a good show while cutting #protip 😉
Step 2- use your paint brush and brush a layer of Mod Podge on the egg. Press the flower down and then paint over it. I printed my flowers on thicker paper- make SURE to use the thinnest computer paper you can so they are easier to mold over the egg shaper
Step 3- let dry. You are all done- see I told you that these were super easy!!!
I did the decopage part while my son was napping and thoroughly enjoyed it. This would also be fun with older kids. Plus you can print out literally anything! Pictures of your favorite people, or cartoons, or food. The sky is the limit!
I love how romantic and vintage these look! I put them on hard boiled eggs, but wish I could keep them for next year!
Anyway, I am really happy with how these cuties turned out! And hopefully these (or a variation of them) are something you can make on or before Easter.
