The Dollar Tree wood cutout Easter eggs are already painted white and just a little distressed, so I’m just leaving them like this for a bit.
First up, I’m using 20 mm beads for this one. I had previously dry brushed them with white chalk paint, and you can see there’s not much paint coverage on these guys. I’m stringing them on jute string to make the next process much quicker. I’m using 42 beads for this project.
Next, I’ll be using hot glue to attach the beads on the back of one of the eggs. The goal here is going to sandwich the beads between two eggs. I’m starting by gluing a small section, but if you work quickly you can place glue all the way around the egg and glue all the beads at once. I prefer to glue small sections and work my way around the egg with the beads.
Now that the beads are glued and secure, we will add the second egg on top, painted side out.
I’ll use the white chalk paint to paint the edges of these Dollar Tree wood cutout Easter eggs.
Next up I’ll add some color with some greenery and a bow. I have some beautiful lambs ear on hand and a neutral ribbon for a pretty bow.
How simple and pretty is this?? I almost forgot to share, I also chose to use a sanding block to distress the edges more and love the look!!
Lastly, I’ll need a way to make the egg stand. I’ll be using tumbling blocks on the back to create a stand.
Paint two blocks and then use hot glue to attach to the back of the egg. Another option is to leave the blocks off, and use a stand.
Now it’s all finished, sittin’ pretty!! I can’t wait to tuck it into a pretty spring/Easter vignette!! What do you think? Are you a fan of neutral decor? This piece could easily have MORE color by adding different ribbon and flowers. So easy to make this one to fit your style. If you love this beaded DIY, don’t miss this idea!!
