Let me make one thing clear: I am not an artist. I am not a great painter either, but I absolutely love making Easter eggs (especially when they’re Disney Easter eggs)!
I wasn’t planning on painting Easter eggs this year. I figured it isn’t the time to start wasting food—I want to make as few trips to the grocery store as possible.
Thankfully, I was able to find a carton of plastic eggs that I could paint guilt-free!
There are many upsides to painting plastic eggs. One being that they are way less fragile, and two being that plastic eggs are vegan-friendly, so everyone can get it on the fun!
My immediate family and I are celebrating Easter together because we are all quarantined together. Normally we would host a huge celebration with extended family.
This isn’t going to be a normal Easter for us, but it still gives us a chance to do things like painting Disney Easter eggs together!
Winnie and Piglet
I think Winnie is one of the cutest Disney characters to ever exist. I love how he’s so blissfully unaware of anything going on, and that he has an absolute heart of gold!
He also is always thinking about food—I relate to this.
Piglet and Winnie are such sweet friends, and I thought they’d look so cute side-by-side in the egg carton!

Mickey and Minnie
I knew that I had to paint these icons, but the idea of drawing Mickey and Minnie’s face was pretty intimidating. This wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.
I drew the face on first with a pencil and then painted around the lines with a fine brush. Mickey and Minnie actually have the same face… it’s just Minnie’s eyelashes that make her stand apart from her beau.
To make the distinction even more clear I made sure to include her iconic bow and polka-dotted dress.
Sully and Mike
Monsters, Inc. is one of my favorite feel-good movies. Mike and Sully are serious #FriendGoals, they balance one another out so perfectly. As an added bonus, they weren’t very hard to paint!
Right now a lot of us are finding that we have to work with what we have. I didn’t think a trip to Walmart to get googly eyes would be considered essential.
Next year, however, I think I would add fun googly eyes to Sully to make up for Mike’s big eye!

This one is my favorite—I mean how could it not be! I actually started painting this plastic egg thinking it would end up being a Toy Story alien. As soon as I cut the ears out I instantly knew this was going to turn into The Child.
I didn’t paint the face on. I have a Silhouette machine, which is a cutting machine that allowed me to create Yoda’s face with extreme precision.
Now that I have been at home for a few weeks I have learned to work with what I’ve got. I was able to cut a piece off of my drop-cloth for the robe.
I think it worked perfectly! If you want to create your very own Baby Yoda, watch the video below!
I hope you are able to celebrate Easter this year with all of your normal festivities. If eggs or plastic eggs are not available to you right now, then I recommend you improvise!
Cut out egg shapes from paper or use the cardboard rolls from toilet paper or paper towel rolls to make DIY Easter eggs for this weekend!
