wooden easter eggs

Make wooden Easter eggs your canvas! Here’s how to paint them like a pro

You’ll keep these painted wooden Easter eggs around year after year.

We are kicking off a fun celebration of all things Easter, and decorative egg ideas are taking center stage.

Natalie Malan shares her art skills with eggs. With wooden eggs as the base, these can be created as décor elements you can use year after year. The same techniques can be used on real eggs.

Natalie painted her eggs with acryla gouache and says any acrylic paint will work for these techniques.

A rounded mop brush makes painting petals on flowers easy, and for an even easier approach for the details, Natalie recommends paint pens.

Natalie Malan is an Illustrator with a BFA in illustration from BYU. Traditional media is her first love, but somehow Illustrator and Photoshop also stole her heart.  You’ll see Natalie’s name on fabric and embroidery products at Walmart and hobby stores, find her art prints with Minted and a myriad paper and scrapbooking supplies.

Natalie is the mom to four kids under the age of 10 who love to draw and paint.   And is lucky to be married to fellow illustrator Dave Malan. Who also happens to be kind of ok at drawing.
