Four painted Easter eggs


These painted Easter eggs will look fantastic on your table. They're easy to make and give kids the opportunity to show their flair and creativity.

Tools and materials


1Prepare your eggs

Arrange eggs in egg carton, laying lengthways horizontally. Using a large paintbrush, paint one thin coat, allow to dry, then repeat with at least two coats to make sure egg is well covered. When dry, turn the eggs over and repeat the process on the other side.

2Decorate your eggs

Experiment using the fine paintbrush to create tiny dots.

Tip: Only dip the very tip of the brush in the paint. Use painter's tape to help create stripes.

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
