Spring is here and it makes me so happy! I recently shared that I have a serious Easter Egg love affair, but I’m okay with it. Something about the cheerful colors of Easter Eggs and my heart does a happy dance.
Today I am sharing some of the simplest but so fun, Fruit Stamped Easter Eggs I’ve made to date. Check out these very similar Floral Stamped Easter Eggs!
Last year I had the privilege of having a three page spread in Rachael Ray’s Everyday magazine (whaaaat) and I designed Vegetable and Fruit easter eggs for them. Now I just want to make those same eggs again because they were so adorable. Instead, I went with a similar theme and they turned out pretty fun!
What supplies do I need to make Fruit Stamped Easter Eggs?
How to create miniature pencil stamps :
On a scrap piece of paper draw out a circle and break down the basic shapes of the fruit and how they would fit best on a circular pencil eraser.
Once you know your simplified shapes, use another pencil to draw those shapes onto your erasers. You can see below I drew out my pineapple base shape and the pineapple top (which I also ended up using for the carrot top).
How to create Fruit stamps for Easter Eggs :
Very slowly, cut away your eraser to create the shapes you drew with the xacto knife. Honestly, this step was much easier than I thought it would be. Just PLEASE be careful of those fingers!
Next, use your pencil eraser like a mini stamp and get stamping! First I did my pineapple tops in the minty green ink. The pineapple turned out so great and then I set it aside to dry while I worked on my carrot.
Making stamps is something I’ve wanted to try for a while and although this is more difficult than creating a more typical sized stamp and stamping on plain flat paper… I was completely smitten with the process. I mean, who doesn’t LOVE miniature things!
I shared this picture of all my little mini stamps on Instagram. SO CUTE.
Pineapple Easter Eggs:
My pineapple stamped eggs were colorful and light. I love how the yellow pineapples are separate from the green leafy tops.
Apple Easter Eggs :
The apple stamped eggs were more saturated and bold. I thought they would look so fun dispersed in a fruit bowl of apples.
Carrot Easter Eggs :
And possibly my favorite (although, how could I say no to a pineapple easter egg?), the carrot stamped egg is fun and adorable.
And if you liked these adorable fruit stamped eggs, don’t forget to pin them for later. I will definitely be saving them and adding them to my monster box of colorful Easter Eggs!
