Hi friends! Can you believe it’s almost Easter? It seems like we were just celebrating Christmas but here we are well into April! I’m a big fan of Easter I love the pastels and the cute decorations. These little painted Easter egg wood slices make the cutest addition to your holiday decorating!
Do you love pastels as much as I do? I think these muted pastel colors are so pretty and they fit in perfectly with my Easter decor, however, I know that some of you love to use lots of vivd color for Spring and Easter.

How to Make Painted Wood Slice Easter Eggs
For our eggs, we used DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish paint in Everlasting (white), Serene (blue), New Life (green), Rejuvinate (yellow) and Romance (red). If you use dark colors like we did, first you’re going to want to lighten each of the four colored paints by mixing them with the white paint (one-to-one ratio).
Next, paint an oval egg on to the surface of each wood slice with a different color of lightened paint. Leave a small border of unpainted wood on the outer edge. Let dry and then repeat on the other side if desired.
Starting with the yellow egg, add embellishments with the other colors of paints. Add different colors and thicknesses of lines and different colored dots. Next, paint the green egg with different colors of zig zags, lines and dots. For the blue egg, add different colors of wavy lines and yellow dots.
Let the paint dry completely then screw in a small hoop eye pin to the top of each wood slice. Add ribbon for hanging.
