I am by no means an artist – I can do crafts pretty well, but when it comes to doing something freehand with paints or markers, you’re not going to be pretty impressed with what I turn out. But for Easter we always paint eggs, and I wanted to do some Disney eggs this year. If you’re thinking that making Disney characters out of eggs would be difficult, I promise these are some of the easiest that you will find. Mine are certainly not perfect, but they’re cute!
Oh, and before you get on me about this – I know that Minions aren’t Disney, but it was a request from my brother. And it turned out to be one of the cutest ones so I included it here!
All that I had to make these was one egg painting kit from Target. This kit included egg dye in 6 different colors, one skinny black marker, and white stickers in a variety of different shapes. Just using these things I was able to create all of the above characters!
If you prefer working with markers rather than egg dye, be sure to check out my tutorials on how to Mandalorian Easter eggs and an Orange Bird Easter Egg.
This will be the easiest egg you’ve ever decorated. Just take the marker, draw two circles on a white egg and connect them – and you’re done!
There were some thin stripe white stickers, so I put those around Nemo before I dropped the egg into the orange dye. I also put on two white circles for the eyes. Looking back I would have put the eyes a little higher up on the face. After the orange dried I added detail with the marker for the mouth and pupils.
Another easy one, just drawing on a white egg with the marker. If you had paint you could paint the eyes blue!
I had to trim some of the white stickers to be the shape of Pluto’s eyes before dropping him in the yellow egg dye. Then I added the pupils and his face with the marker once dry.
This was just drawn freehand with black marker on a white egg. If you have paint, I would definitely do a little orange triangle for the nose!

Three white circles went on for the eyes. I dipped half of the egg in green, and then the other half in blue. If you had paint I would do a purple stripe between the two colors for the belt – it also helps make the lines look a little more even. Then the marker was used to add pupils and a mouth.
I started with a green egg (the green dye in our set wasn’t very bright, unfortunately), and then added details with the marker. Also a white circle sticker for the eye.
There were circle stickers in various sizes, so I used bigger circles as the base with little ones on top for the ears. This could be in any color but I chose purple. Then after it dries you peel the stickers off and it looks like Mickeys are right there on the egg!
Half was dipped in the yellow dye, then the other half in the blue. I stuck one white circle sticker on for the eye and drew in the rest of the details.
