DIY Crescent Moon Easter Eggs


Add some unique ornamentation to your Easter eggs this year with this sharp DIY cresent moon Easter egg tutorial from Brittni of the Paper & Stitch blog!


The main ingredient in this shrewd tutorial is the use of painter’s tape to block out your pattern on your eggs before painting or dying them. Of course, you should always be careful not to use anything that could be potentially hazardous to your health on anything you’re planning to eventually eat, as Brittni herself warns.

This goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway…since you’ll be using paint for this project, you will not want to eat the eggs afterward. BUT if you’re looking for an alternative option for these, you can use the same process with the tape and try food coloring dyed eggs instead, as a food safe option.

Whether you choose to use a crescent moon shape, or come up with a shape of your own, experimenting with your egg decorating is always a fun way to celebrate the Easter holiday!
