Today I have a super cute DIY Doll Easter Egg Coloring scene for you! This is a throwback post that I originally did for Doll Diaries in March 2014. I have updated the pics and directions and included an egg carton printable. Easter Egg Coloring is an event in this house. It is usually reserved for Good Friday! We have competitions on the best…and worst egg. My daughters, myself, and their grandmother are always left with ugly died fingers and absolutely the best memories.
I found bubble gum eggs at my local dollar store; the containers were perfectly sized for dolls. I removed the gum and made new labels. The little plastic eggs were found at Michaels craft store.

The egg cups are lids to bead containers.
The food dye containers are jars that contained nail art beads found at the dollar store.
I filled the egg cups and mini jars with colored resin. The resin I use can be found here: https://www.michaels.com/easy-cast-clear-casting-epoxy/10408248.html#q=castin+craft&start=6 . For the resin dye I used actual food coloring. First mix up your primary colors and then use those to mix up your secondary colors. The bottle dye holder is the plastic part of an orange push up. I cut the center pole down and glued a tri-bead on top. I made the red and black wax pencils and white crayon out of shish-kabob skewers cut down and colored in with sharpies.
The plastic eggs were decorated with nail stickers and a white sharpie marker. I dabbed a small amount of food coloring on the pad of my finger and touched a cut piece of paper towel to add to the details of the scene. Those wet eggs gotta dry! lol.
The egg scoops are made from actual scoops; using wire cutters, I cut the smaller end off and then used needle nose pliers and bent the cut ends over.
We also made doll sized Easter cookies from mini Wilton cookie cutters, tan polymer clay, and fabric paint.
These DIY Easter Eggs and Cookies have seen so much love over these last three years. We were as excited this year…as last…and as the year before to get these little dolly diy treats out for the holiday.

Absolutely fantastic posting Brandy!!! NEVER would have thought to use a pushup icecream spindle for the egg dye rack..makes me think of using it for other things as well!! I love that you have all the sites downloadable for all the supplies needed to recreate your lovely crafts…makes it so easy for us wanna-be-Brandys haha! All the details are fantastic down to the nail sticker decorations and the shishkabob sticks for wax resist designs on the eggs! You are so talented and such a warm personality…it was a lucky day for me when I “friended” you online! Kudos!
Oh Lisa! You are the sweetest! Ditto my friend!
I found your diy and did these last year. Still have them for this year. I used the nail glitter in the little bottles. I will have to print off the egg carton labels. Thank you for such cute ideas.
You are very welcome Connie!
I loved this post when you did it in 2014 and I love the new version, too!
Thanks so much Madelon! 🙂
I loved the first version you made of this, and this one is even more adorable! I’ve been collecting the supplies for this, and now it’s going to be over the top. Thanks so much!
You are so welcome! 🙂
Thanks so much! 🙂
