Carrot Eggs for Easter

Carrot Eggs for Easter

Even though Easter is a few weeks away, I couldn’t resist creating some fun carrot eggs for my mantel.

How to Make Carrot Eggs for Easter

Supplies

Hard Boiled Eggs

Craft Paint

Sponge

Tissue Paper

Glue

Procedure

Sponge Paint Eggs

Instead of using dye for my eggs, I dabbed on orange craft paint with a sponge.  This paint technique dried very quickly which was an added bonus.

Make the Carrot Top

The carrot tops were formed by folding a 4×4 square of green tissue paper.

Glue Carrot Top to Egg

After folding the tissue paper, adhere it to the egg with a dab of hot glue, then gently pull apart the layers of tissue paper to create fullness.

I used these carrot eggs on my Easter themed mantel.  Here’s a sneak peak!

Make Easter eggs that look like carrots.  These look festive "planted" in a basket or bowl for Easter decor.

  1. Paula, this is just a darling idea. I’ve pinned it and will be giving it a try for the holiday. Thanks for sharing

  2. Very cute and looks so easy!

  3. Very colorful! Are they safe to eat or just for decoration?

    • They are hard boiled eggs but I won’t eat them because they haven’t been refrigerated after boiling. I am hoping that the insides will dry so that I can save them.

  4. These are so cute! What a great idea for Easter!

  5. Paula, these are TOO cute! Thanks so much for linking them to Grace at Home–I hope lots of people get to see these! I’m going to feature this post and I’m pinning it to my Easter board. Adorable!

  6. OMG – this has to be the most original egg decorating idea that I’ve seen yet! I love this! 🙂
