This is a nice idea to put chocolate eggs in, decorated eggs as show here, or even to add some colour to your fridge instead of boring cardboard.
Shredded Paper (optional)
Step One: Paint the carton any colour you like. I painted mine turquoise and coral with gold dots for one and gold stripes for the other.
Step Two: Place the shredded paper in the carton
This is fun and really easy once you get the hang of it. The best part is choosing how you’re going to decorate them.
All weather exterior low sheen white paint
Step One: Push the pin through the top of the egg and take it out.
Step Two: Do the same thing to the bottom of the egg except this time you want to make the hole a bit bigger. Create a small circle and chip away at it till it’s big enough for the yolk and white to come out.
Step Three: Blow through the hole at the top of the egg. The yolk and white will come out the bottom. Put the bowl underneath.
Step Four: If your eggs are brown like mine, then I would recommend painting them with all weather exterior (low sheen) white paint, so that you don’t have a brown tinge coming through when you paint them later on. I tried using white acrylics but the paint was too thin.
Step Five: Now for the fun part! Come up with your ideas and get painting!
Putting your decorated eggs in a painted egg carton makes a great gift.
