DIY Monogrammed Easter Eggs
We’re sharing DIY Monogrammed Easter Eggs today!
If you had a chance to check out our Simple Spring Centerpiece and Vignettes post, you know I’ve been prioritizing decluttering over seasonal crafts the year.
We just have too much stuff and I’m finally ready to let it all go.
But the more my Mom spoke about her trip to Europe and how she hoped she would be able to find the chocolate bunnies and hand-crafted panoramic sugar eggs she enjoyed as a young girl though, the more it made me want to craft something special to commemorate the season.
While these hydrangea-inspired DIY Monogrammed Easter Eggs are not nearly as artistic and detailed as panoramic sugar eggs, they’re going to be a fun addition to our Easter baskets this year.
Here’s a look at how to make DIY Monogrammed Easter Eggs for your gift baskets, tablescapes, or spring vignettes too…
DIY Monogrammed Easter Egg Supplies:
- Plastic Crafting Eggs (we found these at Michaels)
- Home Computer/Printer/Printer Paper
- Graphite Pencil
- Ballpoint Pen
- Flower Embellishments (we found these at Michaels)
- Pearlized Straight Pins, optional (we found these at Amazon)
- Tarp (to protect your work surface)
DIY Monogrammed Easter Egg Steps:
Gather your supplies and lay a tarp down to protect your work surface. We found these jumbo plastic Easter eggs with a matte finish at Michaels.
Using your home computer and printer, print out the single-letter monogram of your choice.
Once you have your monogram printed out, cut around the letter or letters using caution and care as scissors will be sharp.
Flip the letter over and shade the back using a graphite or number 2 pencil.
Next, attach the letter to the egg with tape. Be careful not to get smudges on the egg.
Use a ballpoint pen and trace the outline of the letter.
This will lightly transfer the letter directly onto the egg.
Next, place your flower embellishments on the egg with glue.
If your flower embellishments have a center, you should be good to go as long as the glue is dry. I made this DIY monogrammed Easter egg for Piper’s basket.
If your flower embellishments have an empty center, insert a colorful pearlized straight pin into the center. Just make sure you craft this step with caution and care as the pins will be sharp.
Once the flowers and pins have been secured, place your DIY Monogrammed Eggs into a gift basket or use them as part of a seasonal display.
Decorating with Custom Easter Eggs…
What I love about these monogrammed eggs is that they’re not only simple to make, they can easily be customized to fit any special recipient or seasonal color palette.
You can also forgo the monogram completely and use the flower embellishments to make any design you want like this hydrangea-inspired Easter egg.
As with most of our craft projects, it literally took me longer to drive to town and get the supplies than it took to make them.
While I still have some shopping to do, I can’t wait to slip one of these DIY monogrammed Easter eggs into each basket.
I know they’re going to be a big hit!
