Make your own Blue and White Easter Eggs to match your decor. Mine have a bit of a Chinoiserie or Blue Willow flair. You can whip out a half dozen of these gorgeous DIY Easter Eggs while watching a movie. 

How To Make Blue & White Easter Eggs

I have long admired Blue Willow and Chinoiserie designs but only last year began to add the colors to my home decor. I am not really a big fan of the Chinese pagodas but mostly just love the bright blue and white color combination.

Of course the most frugal way to update your home decor is to Do It Yourself!  In the spirit of DIY, I stepped out of my comfort zone to make these Blue and White Easter Eggs. 

Supplies for making Blue & White Easter Eggs

  1. White Plastic Fake Eggs
  2. Bright Blue Permanent Marker

My new blue and white eggs may easily be described as Folk Art and the last thing I would consider myself to be is an artist of any sort. Thank goodness for Pinterest. 

The first thing I searched was how to draw paisley because I love paisley so much! I selected the easiest tutorial I could possibly find.

Drawing a simple paisley design using a marker to decorate Easter eggs wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. It was fun because you can make each one different. There are no rules, just have fun with it.

My paisley Easter egg designs are all combinations of ideas inspired by the plethora of images I found of Easter Eggs on Pinterest and Google.

Joann’s had all of their Easter items half price plus I had a 20% off my total purchase coupon.

Their plain white plastic Easter eggs are a bit better quality for crafting in my opinion. They are a solid piece, not two pieces and a thicker plastic. Don’t forget to take your coupon!

My choice of marker is a Sharpie. The color is perfectly vibrant for these Blue and White Easter Eggs.

You can’t beat a craft with only two items and very little effort but tons of pop for Spring home decor.

I treated myself to an Antique Mall shopping trip in search of the perfect white bowl. Hobnail was my hope but I didn’t really expect to find it. It was just plain exciting to find the perfect Hobnail while bowl for my new Blue and White Easter Eggs!

Did you see my Faux Hobnail Vase  I made recently? Go here for that easy tutorial.

  3. It’s Easter egg coloring for adults and I love it! Mess free and easy to customize for any decor by using pens to decorate. Pinned.

  4. Shirley, I am in love with these eggs. That color is so mesmerizing! There is an old craftsmanship here in Germany (way up at the northern coast) where the women decorate Easter eggs similar to yours. But I think they color the entire egg in blue first and then they scratch a delicate pattern into them using a needle or some other sharp tool. I tend to see them occasionally when browsing through Easter markets. They are ridiculously expensive, but if you consider the work, they are probably totally worth it. As I lack patience your tutorial is a wonderful alternative that already made it to my Easter projects PIN board.

  5. These look amazing! I am a huge fan of paisley too, that’s my favorite egg. I also bought the tub of crafting eggs from Joanns and they are super nice. I haven’t quite decided what to do with them yet. Your blue & white easter eggs look so beautiful! Great job!

    1. Hi Jenny, those eggs from Joann’s really are the best quality, not cheapo looking and they are one solid piece making them perfect for crafting! Maybe I should get one more jar full and save them for later 😉 Thank you for your kind words. #paisley
