The way we are decorating Easter eggs have really come a long way. Gone are the days where we only decorate actual eggs with some paint (although that is always fun too), but welcome to the contemporary visionaries who have turned this Easter activity into something classy, memorable and inspiring. I am so excited about this Easter and have seen some amazing ideas for Easter Egg decorating. I hope that these 13 Cement and Wood Easter Egg Decorating Ideas will inspire you and help you push your own creative boundaries this Easter.
13 Gorgeous Cement and Wooden Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
First up, if you cannot get your hands on bought cement eggs, don’t worry, they are really very easy to make. The only difficult part is waiting for them to dry. A simple tutorial on how to make your cement Easter eggs can be found on LifeisaParty’s site.
So, let’s jump into the first 4 gorgeous ideas.
1.Color them with latex paint
The subtle hues of these cement Easter eggs are low key and perfect to add as decoration. Go for pastel colors to create a soft palette.
2. Add gold leaf patches
The patchy look of the gold leaf seems so authentic and rustic, I love it. The raw cement Easter egg underneath compliments the luxurious gold leaf extremely well. Try this with copper or silver leaf as well and in different designs.
Metal paint colors pair up perfectly with the cold cement look. It adds some luxury and style to what could easily be a boring item. Display them together to create a stunning focus area for Easter. Also, with these, there is no need to paint them in a perfectly straight line. I rather prefer the hand painted look. But, I guess you can also tape them to form a straight line.
4. Dipped paint
These eggs are natural eggs, but dipping cement eggs would work really well and the dipping effect looks stunning. Stick to earthy colors to get a natural theme going for Easter.
5. Color Undercoat with Gold leaf Overlay
Lily Ardor is just genius with this idea. The contemporary decorated Easter eggs with the pastel and gold leaf look stunning together. These eggs are made with clay, but cement eggs decorated this way will look great too. Play with lines and designs on paper first before putting it on the egg to make sure you are happy with the look.
6.Natural with stamps
Placing words on Easter eggs with a plain text look rustic and earthy. Try adding names of the persons you will be inviting, or words that you associate with Easter.
7.Copper paint on raw cement eggs
Tape off the cement Easter eggs in diagonal lines and pain them with any color metal paint. The whiter cement used here looks eggceptional with the copper.
8. Black and gold Easter
Okay, so these eggs are not made from cement, but the idea, although a bit unusual could work well for cement eggs. Paint them black and then add either gold leaf or paint. Very stylish and mature look for a stunning alternative Easter table.
9. White patterns on raw cement
This is an easy idea to make yourself. Some white paint and cement eggs are all you need for this one. Paint some fun lacey designs on the eggs. The white and cement look great on the green moss.
10. Stained wooden eggs
One of my absolute favourites. There is so much that you can do with wood stain, the possibilities are really endless. Keep it simple like Chris and Julia have done here, or paint some pretty designs with the stain.
11 Dip dyed wooden eggs
White is always a winner. Any color could work, but these just seem so stylish and will always be in fashion. Dip them all in different ways to spice up the collection.
12 Speckled Easter egg
Inspiration from nature. Paint the entire egg in one soft color, then using some paint and a toothbrush, splatter the paint over the eggs to create the speckled effect.
13 Gold leaf and white Easter eggs
Pair up the gold leaf Easter egg decoration with plain white designs. The wood, gold and white is stunning combination and easy to do.
