Here is your guide for how to Decorate your Lego Star Wars Easter Eggs.
With this step-by-step guide you will be able to re-create all your favorite LEGO Star Wars characters including Yoda, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.
STEP #1 Hard boil your eggs
To save a lot of mess and wasted time make sure you hard boil your eggs before decorating them.
STEP #2 Choose your characters
There are plenty of Star Wars characters to choose from…will it be Yoda, C-3PO, Darth Vader, R2-D2 or Darth Maul?
STEP #3 Prepare your paint and colors
Darth Maul: black, red, white
Darth VADAR: black, grey
Stormtrooper: white, black
C-3PO: yellow, gold, white
R2-D2: blue, white, black
STEP #4 Prepare your brushes
Eggs are pretty small so it is best to use very small brushes for your eggs. For the really detailed ones like R2-D2 a felt-tip pen is helpful.
STEP #5 Use a pencil first
Some of you more experienced decorators may want to dive straight in but if you are unsure of your artistic ability then use a pencil to trace where your paint will go before you begin with the brush.
STEP #6 Start decorating – take your time
You are now ready to get going. Don’t rush straight in, take your time and make sure that each color is dry before you add any extra details.
STEP #7 Coat your egg with glue
If you want to protect the paint and give a cool shine to your eggs, you can coat your Star Wars themed Easter eggs with PVC glue.
STEP #8 Don’t stop at one!
Don’t let your character get lonely, make a whole bunch! You children will love re-creating their favorite scenes.
STEP #9 Make your eggs 3D
To make your LEGO Star Wars inspired Easter eggs even better why not add extras to each character. Maybe you could add some cotton wool to make Yoda’s white hair, or some colored Play-Doh as Darth Maul’s horns.
STEP #10 Show off your LEGO Star Wars-inspired Easter eggs
You now have an awesome set of LEGO Star Wars inspired Easter eggs to show-off to all your friends.
