2. Repeat technique to spray colors on eggs. Note: Only use Latex Paints on Styrofoam eggs. Use removable dot labels and reinforcers to create small dot and circle stencils. For larger dots, use reinforcers and cover holes with small dot labels. Use masking tape to stencil stripes; double up on tape to create varying widths. Use masking and painter’s tapes to mask checkers, or tape a stripe horizontally and another vertically on egg.

One thought on “eggs over easy

  1. What fun! Really makes me miss those days when the kids were younger, we had so much fun creating. They are both in college now, but I still set out some of the wooden eggs that they decorated back then!!!
