I just love all the gorgeous spring colors that we used in this Easter egg art project! After all of the cold winter weather, it was so refreshing to do an Easter project with spring colors. These watercolor Easter eggs were so fun and so easy to make. We loved making our sticker resist Valentine’s bookmarks so I thought it would be fun to try an Easter project with the sticker resist watercolor technique. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite techniques to experiment with!
I made an Easter egg template for you as part of my free printable resource library. Click here to gain access to all of my awesome free printables that include notepaper & envelopes, doodle pages, postcards and more!

1. First, print and cut out your Easter egg template. Use your template on watercolor paper and cut out your Easter egg shapes.
2. Pick out the colors you want to use. We chose spring and Easter colors, but you can use any colors you like. I like to have a scrap piece of paper handy to test out my colors first.
3. Take out your stickers and place them on your Easter eggs, making sure to press down firmly. Kids can choose to make a pattern like we did on some of our eggs or place the stickers randomly. My son likes to put his stickers all over the place, while my daughter likes to use a pattern. This is great for younger kids because there is no wrong way to put on your stickers and they will always look great!
4. Once the stickers are on and pressed down firmly, paint the eggs with a water wash first. Make sure the entire egg is painted with water but is not soaking wet. If there is too much water you can just dab the paper a bit with a paper towel.
5. Paint your eggs with your chosen colors, it’s fun to watch the colors mix together on the wet paper. Remind kids not to mix the colors too much, to let the paper do most of the mixing. Kids love to watch the colors mixing on their paper!
6. Let the paper dry completely and then peel off the stickers. It’s pretty cool for kids to peel off their stickers and reveal their beautiful designs!
Our Easter egg art turned out beautifully! The colors are so bright and fresh and just perfect for spring and Easter. They would look great made into an Easter banner or a wall hanging as part of your Easter decor. This is such a great project that kids of all ages will have fun with.
