LEGO Star Wars: Easter Egg Decorating Guide

Mar 26, 2013

Easter is just around the corner, so we thought we would help out Star Wars fans by providing you with a guide to how you can decorate your own LEGO Star Wars-inspired Easter eggs. With our 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, favourites of ours include Yoda, C-3PO, Darth Vader, R2-D2 and Darth Maul.

STEP #3 Prepare your paint and colours

To decorate your LEGO Star Wars inspired eggs it is best use either poster or acrylic paint and to use the right colors for each character. Here is a helpful color guide for you:

  • Darth Maul: black, red, white       
  • Yoda: green                                      
  • 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 advised.

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 colour is dry before you add any extra details

STEP #7 Coat your egg with glue

To protect the paint and give a cool shine to your egg you can coat your themed Easter egg with PVC glue.

STEP #8 Don’t stop at one

So you’ve now got a kick-ass LEGO Star Wars inspired Easter egg character, but why stop there? Don’t let your character get lonely, make a whole bunch and begin re-creating your 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 coloured 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. If you want you can even share this guide with them as well, so you can compare your LEGO Star Wars-inspired creations.
