Looking to add some Disney to your Easter celebrations? Paint your own Pixar Easter eggs this week with these easy to make DIY Disney Easter eggs!
Easter is the perfect holiday to show off your crafting abilities! Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to start decorating for Spring.
Last year I painted a few Disney themed Easter eggs for our Easter celebration. I was able to track down some plastic eggs, which really paid off. Not only are plastic eggs less wasteful, you can keep them forever!
This year I was able to add to my collection of Disney Easter eggs instead of having to make them all over again. Using plastic eggs is a serious win/win!
I was able to track down a carton of these fake eggs at my local dollar store, but they can also be found at Michael’s and Amazon!
I like to get crafty, but I am definitely not an artist. The eggs I made this year are simple enough that anyone at any skill level could paint them.
Last year I painted Pooh bear and friends, as well as Mickey and Minnie, and this year I decided to pull some inspiration from the Pixar world! Pixar is notorious after all for putting easter eggs in their movies– it just felt fitting!

Disney Pixar Easter Eggs
Mike & Sully Easter Eggs
Mike Wazowski just happens to be my favorite Pixar character, and I love the hilarious banter between Mike & Sully throughout both of their movies.
Thankfully, these two characters were easy to create as Easter eggs. If you can paint circles and a few lines then you can make this duo in no time!
What you’ll need:
- Plastic eggs
- White felt
- A glue gun
- Purple, blue, green, white and black paint
- Paint brushes
- Googly eyes (optional)
Mike Wazowski was the easiest of my Pixar easter eggs to create. After painting the entire egg green, I painted 4 circles on top of one another.
First I painted a white circle, then a smaller blue one, and followed that with a slightly smaller black circle.
I topped the stack of circles off with a small little white dot in the top right corner to mimic the reflection in an eye, and voila! You have Mike’s iconic eye ball!
I cut out small little triangles for his horns and used a hot glue gun to secure them in place. This is a small detail that will really help bring your egg to life!
When you cut out the horns for Mike, also cut slightly larger felt pieces for Sully. After you paint this egg blue, randomly add purple dots all over the surface.
For Sully, make sure you add teeth! That’s one of his most definitely characteristics– especially to the kids he scares!
I used a hot glue gun to add the googly eyes to this egg, but you can also paint on a set of eyes if you don’t have google eyes at your disposal.
Toy Story Aliens Easter Eggs
These adorable little characters really pulled through as the ultimate heroes in Toy Story 3! I loved the way Pixar was able to bring back the claw for the most satisfying save in movie history.
Although we don’t get to know The Aliens in Toy Story very well, they still managed to be a fan favorite throughout the entire Toy Story franchise.
I used the same green paint that I painted the Mike Wazowski Easter egg with. I didn’t realize how close their colors were!
This Easter egg needs more felt than Mike and Sully– and it also requires one extra googly eye than Sully!
For the ears I cut 2 large triangles out of green felt, and then pinched the bottom of each triangle to create the shape that you see in the photo. I glued them down with a hot glue gun, which helped it keep the shape.
The antenna was an easy shape to cut out as well. I drew the shape on the felt which helped me cut the shape out much easier.
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!
