Black & White Easter Eggs

Happy Easter! I’m so pleased warm weather is coming back, and looking forward to celebrating Easter with my family. Every year I try a new egg project, and this year ended up being one of my favorites.

I blew out a dozen white eggs (with a little help) and then decorated each with a different black and white pattern. I used two thicknesses of sharpie, and made an effort to vary techniques and visual weights for each pattern.

I think the overall effect is clean and modern, with a little bit of whimsy from the less-than-perfect hand drawn patterns. I’ve never been one for fussy patterns or pastels, so these are just my taste for holiday decorations.

I think these will look nice beyond Easter and I look forward to figuring out what to do with them next!

    Too cute. I think I ‘LLC this but also use some colored markers. Can’t wait.

    How do you “blow-out” the eggs??

    • admin / Mar 12 2013

      Hi Kris,
      By removing the yolk and white from inside the egg, I’ve been able to enjoy these for much longer than traditional hard-boiled eggs. To do so, you simply poke a hole with a pin in both sides of the egg, and blow out the yoke! There are plenty of tutorials online – my only caution is that it can often get messy! Good luck!

    I too try to make a new type of egg every year. This year I made eggs from denim scraps. Last year I spray painted Ombre eggs. I have seen many collections of egg techniques on the blogs this year and the graphic design of your sharpie eggs has caught my eye over and over again. I love the strong, contemporary design. Happy Easter.

  12. These are so great! (Especially with the huge black and white graphic trend going on right now!) Can’t believe how easy they are too! We love them so much we want to feature them on our easter egg post (with a link to your site, of course!). Thank you for the beautiful inspiration. Keep it coming!

    Warmest,

    Found this on pintrest. I LOVE it and needed a new way to do eggs this year. We drew on hard boiled eggs and it was so much fun for my whole family. Even my 2 year old loved it. Thanks for the inspiration. Love your blog.
