Adventurously painted plastic Easter egg decorating idea

I have had a few plastic Easter craft eggs hanging around, and I thought it would be fun and different to use scenic woodlands and adventurous words as a painted Easter egg decorating idea for fake, paintable eggs (only). Mine were a type of plastic, but you can find paper-mache ones at the craft store too. I used regular acrylic craft paint for this project.

 I have the step by step so you can paint some too! If you are going to use those cheap, colorful, plastic Easter eggs, you may want to use a multi -surface craft paint because regular acrylic paint will peel right off.

Paint your plastic eggs in green and blue for the sky and ground

Paint your eggs with green and blue for the sky and ground. I also added a little yellow to give it some dimension. I did the blue first, let it dry, then I painted the green.

After they were completely dry, I then use some brown paint to make lines for pine tree trunks.

Add trees to your painted Easter egg idea

You may have to wait between steps depending on how fast your paint dries. If you make enough eggs, normally by the time you get to the last, the first ones you did are ready for the next step.

Add trees with a light shade of green.

Then add some trees in darker green and let dry, You can see to paint the trees, I just used a series of little lines going downward from the middle, and getting a little bit longer near the bottom. I also varies their height  and position to make it look more like a forest instead of having them all line up. You can use three or four different shades of green to show depth in the trees.
