This craft is so easy, teens, tweens, and even some children will enjoy creating one! It would make a fun family craft project or rainy day activity.
The products needed are minimal and you can make them more colorful if you desire. Paint them pastel colors with white “frosting” or go for a more traditional decorated Easter Egg look and make them bright with sweet patterns or designs.
Dress up plastic eggs before your next egg hunt or glue them first for permanent display. Have fun!

Easy Easter Craft: Painted Chocolate Eggs
- Plastic or wooden eggs (like Craftwood Decorative Wood Eggs – 2-1/2″)
- Acrylic Paint – white, dark brown, and light brown (like Martha Stewart Satin Acrylics)
- Dimensional Fabric Paint: white, dark brown, and light brown (like Tulip Slick)
- Paintbrush – 1/2″ flat
- Wire Baking Rack or bottle caps
- Cover your work surface with paper or plastic.
- Paint the base color on each egg; place them on the baking rack to dry (or use bottle caps to keep the eggs from rolling)
- Allow the first coat of paint to dry, then add a second coat.
- Allow to dry completely – overnight is best.
- Apply the dimensional paint in zigzags to mimic the look of drizzled chocolate.
- Allow to dry and display in a basket with Easter Grass
