~ Digital Cutting file (svg, dxf, eps) to use on a cutting machine (Cricut or Silhouette)
~ Acrylic Craft Paint (Like Apple Barrel, Ceramcoat, Americana, or DecoArt) -Found at any Craft Store
~ Sponge Brush
~ Something to put your paint on (like a Paper Plate)
Step 1: Start by putting a small amount of paint on your paper plate. Use this paint to start painting the edges of your wood egg. I have found that a sponge brush works well.
Step 2: After the edges have been painted, I then paint the front of my egg. Once the edges and the front have been painted, wait a few minutes for them to dry.
Step 3: Once the sides and top are dry, I then paint the back of the egg. At this point I also add another coat of paint to the front of the egg, if needed.
Because our wood cutouts are 3/4" thick, they can easily stand up on their own. After painting the back and the 2nd coat on the front, I stand up the wood cutout so that both sides can dry. One thing I love about Acrylic Craft paint is the drying time... it dries super fast.
Repeat these steps for all of your Easter Eggs. Until they are all painted and dry.
Step 4: There are so many possibilities and different ways to finish your Easter Eggs. If you would like to make eggs similar to the ones I have pictured, feel free to use the cutting file that is available in this blog post. It is easy and simple to cut these designs on colored vinyl with a Cricut or Silhouette cutting machine and then apply them to your painted eggs.
Step 5: Download the Cutting file that I have provided for you…(svg, dxf. eps & pdf files) ~ It includes a chevron pattern, polka dot pattern and flower with lines pattern ~

You will need to re-size the designs to fit on the size of egg that you have.
Cut out the vinyl designs.
Using transfer tape, apply these designs to your eggs.
STEP 6: I like to use a piece of sandpaper to sand the front edge on the side of my wood crafts… especially when I have vinyl hanging off of the sides. By brushing the edges softly with the sandpaper, it will gently trim the vinyl right off the edge. This is an easy & simple way to trim the vinyl to the exact size.
STEP 7: Then the final step… I like to spray my crafts with a Clear Wood Finish Lacquer Spray to protect the painted finish. You can find a spray at your local Hardware Store, Home Depot or Lowes.
So cute!! and Easy!!
