If you have some creative kids or ones who are fascinated by outer space, then these Galaxy Easter Eggs are the perfect Easter craft.
Easter is around the corner and my kids love decorating eggs to put around the house.
Over the years we have done the traditional dyeing of the eggs, but my girls enjoy getting a bit more creative!
Out Of This World Galaxy Easter Eggs
Switch up your regular Easter egg decorating this year for some out of this world creative fun!
These Galaxy Easter Eggs are super easy and fun for everyone to make, even us adults.
Step-By-Step Galaxy Easter Eggs
Follow along below to see the step-by-step process of creating these Galaxy Easter Eggs.
Then you can print off the supply list and instructions for this fun craft at the end of this post.
Gather all the supplies you will need. I prefer to use fake Easter eggs, but you can certainly use real eggs if you want.
Paint the wooden eggs black. This will take 2-3 coats. Allow the paint to dry completely between coats.
Alternatively, you can buy black chalkboard type eggs and skip the step of painting the eggs black.
Cut a sponge into small 1 inch pieces.
Using a different piece of sponge for each colour start layering your paint.
Allow colours of paint to dry before dabbing another colour on top.
TIP: hold the egg up with a piece of toilet paper tube
Continue to dab layers of your paint colours onto your eggs.
Keep dabbing colours onto the egg until your happy with the result.
Allow the eggs to fully dry using a plastic tray. If you use an old egg carton the paint could stick to it and rip off.
Using a small paint brush, draw small starbursts on your eggs.
Coat toothbrush bristles with white paint. Using your finger flick paint onto the egg to create stars and swirls in the galaxy, then allow the paint to dry completely.
Using a foam brush dab some glue lightly onto the egg. Next, pour gold glitter over the glue.
Shake off any excess glitter, then using the foam brush smudge the glitter a bit and allow to dry completely.
Once your eggs are dry you can display them around the house!
