Step 2.

As plastic eggs tend to be very shiny and smooth, we used a piece of sandpaper to create a rough surface on the plastic egg. This will help the paint stick to the surface.

Step 3.

Look at traditional Ukrainian folkloric symbols for inspiration. For our example, we chose to paint poppy flowers, which represent joy and beauty. Begin your design by dividing the egg in quarters from top to bottom.

Step 4.

Next, draw on a poppy flower on each line and continue down with a vine and leaves.

Step 6.

You may choose to mix paints on this area and create fun layered effects as we show here. Tip: we found it helpful to place the egg on the mouth of a small jar while painting.

Step 7.

Paint your poppy flower bright red, just as you would see in nature.

Step 8.

Glue on Acrylic Jewels to add some extra sparkle or use these Adhesive Peel & Stick Acrylic Jewels where you peel the adhesive backing and stick right onto your surface!

Step 9.

To finish our eggs we filled them with chocolates and the occasional special surprise like this Pom Chick! To learn how to make the Pom Chick, click here
