Chalkboard Easter Eggs!

Every year I try to top the Easter eggs I made the last year. After painting the chalkboard in the hallway, I had some leftover chalkboard paint and had a great idea for my eggs.

Chalkboard eggs!

The paint went on really nicely.

It's great for writing people's names and greetings on the eggs! Now I am wondering what else around the house I can paint with chalkboard paint!


  1. I'd LOVE to paint an old globe with chalkboard paint! (Love the eggs and hallways chalkboard btw!)

  2. Cute! I think this is my favorite easter egg idea I've seen this year. Hope I remember it by the time next Easter rolls around!

  3. This is a great idea! Oo, and with colored chalk too!

  4. Planters! Mason jar lids! Back of the front door!

    I too have a chalkboard painted hallway, but the whole thing is chalkboard, top to bottom. Our friends LOVE it.

  5. ooh! nice!! I did some rocks (I found a place that sells rocks to landscapers by weight & they GAVE me a bunch of free rocks!) Not sure how some gift recipients liked the rocks but I think they are cool!

  6. very cool idea! I used chalkboard paint for this project:

    and then gave them as gifts with the recipient's name written on the hanger and fabric, cards and other goodies clipped in the hanger.

    have fun!

  7. We do coffee cups and planters for Teacher Appreciation Week in our house!
