How to Decorate Star Wars Easter Eggs

Star Wars Easter egg decorating with characters from Rogue One, Last Jedi and Force Awakens
Hi friends, it's Natalie from Doodlecraft! Today I am sharing another fun Star Wars inspired DIY project - this time for Easter. These Star Wars Easter eggs are painted with my favorite characters - Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, a porg and BB8. It's a fun Star Wars craft you can do in an afternoon. Coloring Easter eggs with paint like this is simple AND because they aren't real eggs, I can keep them year after year.  These have an adorable, Kawaii style face with the giant eyes and tiny mouths. This technique could be adapted for Peg Dolls too.

To make following along easier, I broke up the instruction to teach you how to make each character. I have instructions for how to make Star Wars Easter eggs with Princess Leia, BB8, a porg, Han Solo, young Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca.

How to decorate a Princess Leia Star Wars Easter Egg

Begin by painting the top of Princess Leia's hair brown.  It's basically a heart shape with no point.  Parted in the middle front and then round in the back.

 Let the hair dry and paint a white dress half way around the middle and all over the bottom half.

 After the paint is dry, it's time to give Princess Leia her iconic hair.  You will need 2 brown pom poms or felt balls.

 Just hot glue them on each side of her head, at the base of her hair.

 Next, paint big black circles and eyelashes.  Let them dry.

Add several white highlight dots with a dot stylus or the backside of a paintbrush.  Paint a little, tiny smile and add a little highlight cheek spot in pink.

Adorable porg craft: How to paint a porg Easter egg

The porg makes an adorable little Easter egg (if you love porgs like I do, check out the other porg crafts on Creative Green Living and this porg T-shirt I have on my website).  

Begin by painting the facial outline in brown.  It's very similar to a penguin.  Heart shaped hairline with chubby cheeks and flipper wings.

 Fill the top and entire backside in with short brown hair-like strokes.  Let dry and then add little brush strokes of orange on the tip of the widow's peak hairline and near the cheeks.

 After the paint dries, add gigantic black circle eyes, a tiny upside down V mouth, white highlights in the eyes and pink highlights on the cheeks.

How to paint a BB8 Easter egg

BB8 is my favorite Star Wars character of all time so of course he would be part of my Star Wars Easter egg collection.  He needs simple gray rings painted around the top of the egg, as well as a gray dot.  Then add orange stripes.  Don't over think this part, the wonky lines give the characters whimsy and that animated vibe.

 Add orange dots and stripes around the head, then big orange circles in several places on the body.

 Add decorative stripes, triangles and symbols in gray inside the orange circles.

 Then add a giant black circle eye, white highlights and a tiny pink dot highlight under the gray dot.  He is adorable!

How to decorate a Chewbacca Easter Egg

Chewbacca is seriously amazing and he makes the cutest Star Wars Easter egg.  I think he is the best support character in the entire Star Wars saga. Start by brushing brown paint all over the egg. Make his hair line look brushed around his eyes and down on his face.

 Let the brown dry completely and then add a dark gray bandoleer.  The dark gray is just gray with a tiny bit of black added.

Give Chewie the big, Kawaii-like eyes and a smirk-like frown.  Add the light gray to the bandoleer to look like the bowcaster ammo.

 Let the paint dry and add the final white and pink highlight dots.  Perfection!

Young Luke Skywalker Star Wars Easter egg

The classic saga is not complete without Luke Skywalker. To make this Easter egg inspired by young Luke, use bright yellow for the hair and give him longer hair that is shaggy.

 Then just like Princess Leia, paint a white bottom half on could get more detailed and mix up a khaki color and add the wrap details.  Then add the giant black eyes, smile, and highlight dots.

Han Solo Star Wars Easter egg

Han Solo is the most epic Star Wars character, I am so excited for the Han Solo movie coming out soon!  Han needs a brown hair line, similar to Luke's, but not as messy and long.

 Same as Princess Leia and Luke, Han will need the base of him painted white.  Just in front though.  Then mix up some dark gray, like Chewbacca, and paint on that iconic smuggler vest.

 Let it dry and paint the big eyes, sideways smirk smile, and the white and pink highlights.
