doodle easter eggs

I've got lots of Easter projects to share and to start with is a SUPER simple way to create pretty eggs. Forget about color and keep things simple with black and white doodles!

I started by poking a hole and blowing out the yolk.

and then I went to town with my favorite supply ever- a black sharpie!

I doodled my way across the surface of the eggs with flowers, paisleys and all kinds of simple designs.

The outcome is a very simple and pretty Easter egg.

absolutely gorgeous! I love when I Look at your stuff, I know they are yours. You have such a style about you. A very Alisa Burke Easter.

HollyM said...

I love these. I was laying in bed thinking of something simple I could make to take to my sister's at Easter. I may do them with color on the egg first and then the black.

So clever! These easter eggs are great! :]

I love this idea, but blowing out the yolks is sooo hard! Still lovely to look at!

Andria said...

I'm so glad you shared this idea. I was cleaning out my work areas the other day and found 3 eggs whose yolks I blew out YEARS ago (I can't believe how long they have survived in this box), and I didn't know what to do with them. Now I know!!

Stephanie said...

what a great idea! thanks.

Cindy said...

Perfection! Love them. I will have to made some myself

Alyssa said...

I love these! Your doodleing skillz still amaze me...

I heart your doodle easter eggs! :)

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

Those are so ingenious. I did something similar with a sharpie on a dollar store plate at Christmas, but never thought to do it on Easter eggs. I will have to give it a try.

willowday said...

I've just found your blog for the first time. These are so cool. So modern and So simple. I love them! Thank you for sharing. I've just discovered your blog and I look forward to tuning in again

Rupali said...

Beautiful Easter Eggs. I can use them for my easter party. Thanks for sharing.

Sassy Kay said...

These are lovely. So artistic.

Becky said...

Great job! I love everything you do.

jeanne said...

These are Simply Stunning! Thank you for sharing your creativity.

elwny said...

Can you use the Sharpie (safely!) on regular boiled eggs that can be eaten later?

Amy and Kevin said...

You are a woman after my own heart--doodling on eggs! I love the watercolor ones too. How inspired!

clara said...

Hi Alisa! I'm so excited today... it was many many years the I didn't draw anything anymore! Your eggs inspired me and I tried again!
If you want to take a look to my easter tree, it's here:

Thanks a lot and good luck for the new changings and your future!

Sarah said...

You say to blow out the yolk. Would there be any reason you couldn't do this with a hard-boiled egg?

Stephanie said...

Wonderful...love it...just black and white... :-)))) Stephanie

Michele | Sequined Aspahult Studio said...

These are just so gorgeous and creative! I love them and may try some tonight! Thanks. It will be a relief that all I need is my trusty Sharpie after what we went through Sunday trying our hands at Star Wars Easter Eggs.

Tanya Halligan said...

great idea

Andra J Mladinich said...

I would want to put a fine iridescent glitter on them or maybe some chunky on some too.

Petra said...

I had fun knowing more about the history of Easter Eggs. Also in my craze for this fancy craft idea, I came up with few more Easter activities that are related to Easter eggs. Please allow me to share this on my Pinterest Easter board? Thank you so much! I asked my friends, what will you do with your eggs this Easter? Lol!

if you are looking for a quick and easy way to punch a hole in the shell, use a dremel tool with a small grinder attachment. Makes perfect round holes. Put one hole at the fat end of the egg and one at the narrow end of the egg.
Use an aspirator to push the contents out of egg.
Really quick and easy.
