Hand Lettered Easter Eggs for Farmhouse Decor

These hand lettered Easter eggs are such a fun Easter decorating idea. These farmhouse style decor eggs are done in 15-minutes and only use a few supplies.

For my eggs, I chose to make simple decorations around some of them and if that scares you, don’t worry – it did me, as well. Before we get started, grab a pencil and an eraser.

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 alongside me. The best part of this quick Easter craft is that you don’t need to know how to letter or have a huge stash of craft supplies. You likely have everything you need on hand.

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. Appropriate your child’s pink eraser if you can.
  • You may dye Easter eggs and use those for this sweet and simple Easter egg design.
  • 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. 
  • You can use acrylic paint if you have it on hand but I would suggest watering it down first.
  • After you have lettered on the eggs, let them fully dry and flick some dark gray or brown paint on for that speckled egg look.
  • I have used both the white wooden eggs and the plastic eggs from the craft store (not the break-apart ones for filling).
  • More decorating ideas for an Easter farmhouse egg style are small polka dots, simple flourishes, and even stripes (think ticking stripe). Another one I LOVE are these DIY crackled Easter eggs from Plaid.
  • 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. That one did not make the photo shoot…

Make Hand Lettered Easter Eggs 

Below is the written and printable tutorial. Let me start by saying that 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 for hand lettering in this video.

These adorable farmhouse style hand lettered Easter eggs are so easy and quick to make, you'll want them all over the house!

Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Instructions

  1. Decide on the designs and words you'd like. I used these laurels as inspiration.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Use the thin markers to fill in your designs.
  5. Seal with ModPodge or another sealant and your hand lettered Easter eggs will last for years!
