DIY Fluid Art Easter Egg Decorations

DIY Fluid Art Easter Egg Decorations

Spring is the perfect time to add some new colorful decor to your home, and this year I decided to make some fluid art Easter egg tags. These little wooden tags can be added to shelf decor, hung on the wall, or even tied onto Easter gifts.

An easter egg wood cut-out is decorated using acrylic paint poured over it.

I love working with DecoArt Ready-to-pour™ because it is formulated with the ideal consistency for creating beautiful fluid art in just one step. No mixing or measuring required!

There are lots of different techniques for working with Ready-to-pour™ (check out some of the fun methods you can use in this video), but my favorite method is just pouring paint directly from the bottle onto my surface and then tilting, blowing, and tapping to move the paint around. That's the basic technique I used for these pretty Easter decorations and were so easy and fun to make!

I used unfinished wooden Easter egg tags for my project. You can find similar flat wooden egg shapes in all kinds of sizes in craft stores as well as online. I liked the idea of smaller egg shapes to be subtly incorporated into my seasonal decor, but you can make larger egg-shaped signs as well.

Here's what you need to make your own beautifully swirled Easter egg decorations.

Items needed:

  • DecoArt Fluid Art Ready-to-Pour Acrylic 8oz - White
  • DecoArt Fluid Art Ready-to-Pour Acrylic 8oz - Bright Violet
  • DecoArt Fluid Art Ready-to-Pour Acrylic 8oz - Sky Blue
  • Unfinished Wooden Egg Tags, Signs, or Ornaments
  • Americana┬« Acrylics in coordinating colors
  • Plastic drop cloths to protect your work surface
  • Gloves
  • Wooden Spools and Glue Dots (optional, but useful)
  • Twine or Ribbon

Instructions:

First, be sure to cover your work surface with a drop cloth or plastic tablecloth. Make sure you have gloves and paper towels close by.

Next, use a glue dot to attach a wooden spool to the back of each of your egg tags. This will lift your egg up off your work surface to allow the paint to drip off and give you something to hold onto as you tilt and tip the egg to encourage the paint to flow.

Finally, gently shake your bottles of Ready-to-pour™ to mix the paint.

Next, you can just pour your chosen colors of paint directly onto your wooden egg. I generally like to use three to four colors for each piece.

Next, you can use a few different methods to swirl and mix the paint together.

I like to blow through a straw to direct air and blend the different colors together.

Use the spool on the back of the egg to help you tilt the egg to allow the paint to flow and drip off the edge.

This process is just so much fun! When you are happy with your piece, set it aside to dry.

After your fluid art has dried, it's time to finish off your Easter egg tags. First, remove the spools from the back of each egg.

Then, use a coordinating color of Americana® Acrylics to paint the backside of the egg and give it a more finished look.

After the paint on the backs of the eggs has dried, you can add extra decorations to your eggs if you like. I chose to add some vinyl decals to some of mine.

You can also paint on phrases or names to your eggs by hand.

Finally, finish off your tags by tying a piece of twine or ribbon through the hole at the top.

I am so happy with how these paint pour Easter egg decorations turned out! I am going to be using some as fancy tags for my kids' Easter baskets, and the rest will be placed throughout my home for a little festive decor.
