A sore mouth, red-face, and light-head are not my idea of a good time. But every Easter I love to decorate eggs. Over the last few years, I have started decorating cheap plastic eggs my kids find and have stashed away in the attic. It saves money and a trip to the store!

You may remember last year I painted dollar store easter eggs and outdated decorative eggs in moody colors with hand-painted ferns and truth be told, have been obsessed with the Parisian inspired color palette with all of my holiday decorating.
I used the same crafting materials I’ve been using all year to turn this year’s Easter egg decorating into beautiful chic eggs. You can use the product recommendation below or dig through your crafting stash for trim and faux foliage.

How to decorate plastic Easter eggs.
- Skip to the next step if you have matte colored eggs in pretty colors. Otherwise, customize your color palette and paint plastic eggs with 2-3 coats of craft paint and let dry.
- Hide the seam around the middle by securing a piece of velvet trim with a dot of hot glue. Singe the cut ends with a lighter first to prevent unraveling.
- Glue 3-4 flowers heads to the top of an egg for a floral finesse. You may have to trim the back of the flower head so it doesn’t protrude too much.
- Loop a tassel around one of the flower heads and use it as a hanger for your Easter tree, hang on garland, or adorn a door handle or cabinet pull.
