Easter Eggs in Authentic Colors!
How To Paint Authentic Colored Easter Eggs!
Hello again friends, how are you all? I find it kinda strange to come on here as usual with all that is going on in the world right now. But I hope you know how much I care about all of you and in coming here, I also hope we encourage one another and bring some joy and beauty in these circumstances. So today I am sharing such a sweet and simple project that you can do as we prepare for the Easter season with my friend Krista at The Happy Housie. These authentic Easter eggs are something the whole family can do. In fact, I was researching chicken eggs and found that they can be a rainbow of colors like I was inspired by down below (these are the colors I found when learning more about chicken eggs) and this would be a great lesson for kiddos to be a part of!
Here is what you will need…
- Paint in varying colors (I chose to pick colors that matched real chicken egg colors)
- Wooden Eggs (these work best but you could use plastic)
To make the colors of authentic chicken eggs, I just starting mixing up colors messily on a plate. I sorta let one blend into the next to make a new color each time. You can see all my finished colors down below.
This really doesn’t need explanation, but you simply start painting the eggs…
Then let them dry between coats…
I was so pleased with how these turned out!
I like to imagine that I’ve got chickens laying eggs in the yard and I bring them in all ready to be used for baking ;)… I promise I really don’t go around truly pretending that though, lol.
Wouldn’t that be something though?! Not the pretending but having the luxury of pretty chicken eggs!
To enjoy a simple pleasures and beautiful nature in this way?
For now I will keep them as simple decorations in a jar on my kitchen shelf.
Of course this project could be done in any array of colors, but I just loved the idea that chickens truly lay something so pretty!
I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to head back tomorrow where I will have an Easter basket idea for you too… Here is a peek…
Make sure to go and visit my friends down below with their fun ideas as well!

This is so pretty! Love it!
It’s amazing to see how many different colours eggs naturally come in given that we usually only have access to white and brown. Seems like a shame. These turned out so pretty 🙂
They look beautiful in that Easter basket. Thanks for sharing on the blog hop. Happy Easter!
