Fun Minion Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
Before we get started, here’s a list of supplies you’ll need.
- Minion Easter Egg Printables (enter your email below to download them)
- Color Copy Digital Cover Paper (or any thick, white cardstock)
- Scissors (these are my favorite for small, precision cuts)
- Paper Trimmer
- Glue Dots
- Bright Yellow Acrylic Paint
Minion Easter Egg Decorating Directions:
Depending on the age of your kids, you may need to do some prep work to get the eggs ready for decorating. You can hard boil your eggs or use a sewing need to punch two holes in the eggs and blow it out.
Or you could go my lazy way and just paint regular ole’ eggs (just be sure no one breaks them)!
After your eggs are ready, paint each egg yellow. I painted each egg with about 4-6 thin coats to get a more even look.
Print out all the printables on thick, heavy, white paper. Cut out the base wraps and the corresponding heads.
Wrap the base piece around the egg to determine the size needed, then secure with tape or a glue dot.
Place the egg on the base wrap and then use a glue dot to secure the face to the front of the egg.
You’ll have the cutest, most despicable Easter eggs around!
