These hand lettered Easter eggs are such a fun Easter decorating idea. These rustic eggs are done in 15-minutes and only use a few supplies. Let’s get started.
Hand Lettered Easter Eggs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love to share fun hand lettering tutorials with you. From free practice sheets to lettering on clothing, wood, and more, I find it to be such a relaxing hobby.
Today, I’m sharing these hand lettered Easter eggs I made in 15-minutes while my daughter was crafting at the table. The best part of this quick craft is that you don’t need a crazy amount of craft supplies – you likely have everything you need on hand.
No Time to Make These Now? Save Them for Later
I know how it is – maybe you’re scrolling on your phone or you’ve found this in October. Either way, if you don’t have time make these adorable lettered Easter eggs now, go ahead and pin them to your favorite Easter board on Pinterest or share them to your Facebook page.
Tips for Making Farmhouse Easter Eggs for Decor
Before we get started making our farmhouse Easter eggs, I’m going to share a few things I learned while lettering on eggs. As you can imagine, there were some hiccups…
- Be sure to draw very lightly in pencil as it’s not as easily erased as on paper.
- Keep the designs simple if you’re going for a farmhouse look: laurels, simple lettering styles, and pale or lightly-colored eggs all look great.
- Let the pen lettering dry before moving onto the designs. I messed up by sticking my hand in the pen and proceeded to spread it all over one of the eggs. I’m going to paint over it and try again.
How Do I Make Hand Lettered Easter Eggs?
I’m so glad you asked! If you’ve never lettered a thing in your life, practice building letters on paper. Building letters just means you’re writing the outline and filling it in. You can see how to build letters in this video I have on YouTube.
For those of you making an Easter crafts playlist on YouTube, here is our FULL hand lettered Easter eggs video tutorial.
- Decide on the designs and words you'd like. I used these laurels as inspiration.
- Pencil in the designs and lettering - do not letter it as you would with modern calligraphy. Instead, build the letters as I show you how to do in this lettering video.
- Once you've penciled in your Easter eggs, fill in the lettering and allow it to dry a couple of minutes. I accidentally messed up a rock by smudging the pen.
- Use the thin markers to fill in your designs.
- Seal with ModPodge or another sealant and your hand lettered Easter eggs will last for years!
