DIY Fruity French Easter Eggs

farm-fresh-fruit-eggs

I’m so exited to share the craft I came up with for this month’s 12 Months of Martha challenge! Remember how I pointed out the fun fruit trend I’ve been loving? I let that inspire my egg decorating.

This month the box of crafty goodness showed up with lots of fun spring goodies, with a focus on stencils. My favorite thing in the box was the Adhesive Stencil Film. I used it to create some stencils to paint on some eggs using the great paint colors that were sent in the box too! You can download the stencils here!

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

FRUIT STENCILS I made some for you here!
– Acrylic Paints & Paint Brushes
Martha Stewart Adhesive Stencil Film
– Eggs
– Cutting mat and razor blade
– Permanent pen

1. Start by prepping your eggs. I blew the yolks out of mine and rinsed the insides with water and vinegar so I can save them for next easter. But you could hard boil them as well.
2. Print the stencils I created so you can trace them, or draw your own shapes, keep in mind the size of the egg.
3. Use your razor blade to cut out the shape.
4. Remove the backing of your stencil. Gently place the stencil (adhesive side down) on the egg. You will need to shift it around a bit to keep the shape of the stencil. Once you have it where you like it smooth the stencil down so there are no bumps or bubbles around the edges. You want clean lines!
5. Paint the stencil. I did two coats of paint on some of my fruits. It just depends on the color. Remove the stencil before the paint dries, otherwise it has a tendency to peel up the paint.
6. With a paint pen or permaent marker make additional detial (I added the dots and stems)
7. If you’d like to write the names of your fruit in french I used this translator here! (I took Espanol in high school, comprende?)

It’s not too late for festive fun! Haha, Hoppy freaking Easter!

xo,
Alison

  12. Heloise

    Love these! but am I the only one having trouble with the link for the stencils? it doesn’t seem to work 🙁

  13. Sandy

    The blueberry egg should say “trois myrtilles”. “Une” means “a” as in “a blueberry”.

  14. Mimi

    Cute but no one says myrtilles…. lol it’s bleuets.

  15. Such a great idea!! I used to run an art center for kids and was always looking for fun and new ideas when Easter ( and other holidays ) rolled around. This is a fresh new idea that I have never seen! I can’t wait to make these with my daughter in a few years when she is a big girl. I think we will do them without the stencils for a more personal touch.

  16. I love these so much! Super cute.

  17. C’est cool! What a fun and beautiful way to practice French! Thanks for the great idea.
