Hello Crafty Friends! Easter is coming up and it’s time for a new Easter egg decorating tutorial! This time I created sweet DIY fairy Easter eggs using paint and paper. My daughter is very into fairies right now so we had a lot fun making these colorful eggs. 

We used wooden eggs for our fairies so they will last forever, but these eggs can be made using real eggs, plastic eggs, paper mache eggs or wooden eggs. They only take a few supplies including glittery paper, tiny paper flowers and of course eggs! These eggs are fun to make on your own and are also a great kid-friendly craft. 

Easter eggs decorated like fairies sit on a table next to an Easter basket with cute flowers sprinkled around.

I used a little bit of wall putty to help my eggs stand up for these photos but you can find wooden eggs with flat bottoms so they can stand on their own.

How to Make Cute Fairy Easter Eggs

Supplies Needed:

Wooden eggs, glittery paper and acrylic paint.

Glittery paper, acrylic paint and paper flowers.

Step by Step Tutorial

Step One: Color your eggs! I painted my wooden eggs using acrylic paint. You could also dye hard-boiled eggs or use plastic eggs that are already colorful.

Five eggs are painted with acrylic paint; they are pink, teal, light pink, green and purple.

Step Two: Add a fairy flower crown. Create a sweet flower crown using tiny paper flowers. I found my flowers at Michaels and used little adhesive dots to attach each one. 

Tiny paper flowers are attached around the top of the egg using Zots glue dots.

Step Three: Give each fairy egg a set of glittering wings! I used my favorite glitter paper, the Glitzy stack by DCWV. I like it because the paper is super glittery without leaving glitter on your hands when you touch it. There is a free template in my Resource Library you can use as a guide to cut the wings.

Step Four: Give each fairy egg a face. Use pencil to draw a face on the egg, then use a black Sharpie to trace it. Add rosy cheeks using a pink colored pencil or pink paint.

The fairy eggs are finished! I loved mixing the colorful paper, paint and flowers to create each fairy. They are perfect for spring-time and SO much fun to make.
