Turn your plastic eggs into beautiful boho Easter eggs inspired by Moroccan wedding blankets for a global style with this fun DIY.

Are you looking for unique ways to decorate your plastic Easter eggs? Sometimes I get a wild hair and think of something crazy to do and it ends up being one of my best DIYs! While thinking of a way to repurpose plastic eggs into global-inspired ones my mind wandered to Moroccan wedding blankets and how that would translate to a decorated egg. The result? Beautiful boho Easter eggs.

  • Spray paint large plastic eggs white and small eggs with gold.  Use 2 light coats with 30 minutes of drying time in between.  Let completely dry for at least 2-3 hrs.

For the large eggs:

  • Start by hot gluing yarn (I used a loose woven yarn that’s about 3/4 inch wide) around the egg.  Cover the egg completely or try variations like covering one half, just the middle, or just the ends.

  • Embellish with decorative tape, fringe, sequins, and cording by wrapping the material 1-3 times around a section of the egg.  Keep in place with a dot of glue where needed.    The majority of the egg should be covered in white materials and limit the other small pops of color to black and white, blush pink, and silver.

For the small gold eggs

  • Glue trim around the middle to hide where the two eggs half meet.

Aren’t the pretty?  I just love the textures of the materials and they truly remind me of moroccan wedding blankets.  What do you think?

I have them sitting next to our sofa with a couple of plants.  My floral pillow really draws out the small bits of pink from the eggs.
