Crafty Geek Corner: Easter Egg DIY

In this blog series, Crafty Geek Corner, I will highlight my favorite pins each Monday(-ish). 

Back to the blog business, after another hiatus. Eek. Work has been pretty intense, but here is another stab at consistency!

This week I wanted to look at how to geek up Easter!

Geeky Easter Egg DIY

Crafty Geek Easter Egg DIY

I was looking over my Crafty Geek Pinterest board & realized there were some creative geek inspired options for Easter Eggs.  Why settle for pastels & tie-dyed eggs when you can  geek out?

T.A.R.D.I.S. Easter Egg DIY

TARDIS Easter Egg DIY

Item no longer available on Etsy, which it is a shame.

What makes more sense than Doctor Who themed Easter Eggs? Come to think of it, the Doctor probably would reveal that the Easter Bunny is some sort of alien. If Moffat had anything to do with it, probably an alien bent on destroying the world.  Going only based on the image, it seems these might be paper mache?  A bit confusing, but I guess painting hard-boiled eggs would work just as well.

Yoshi Easter Egg DIY

For when you are not committed to using actual eggs. Plastic egg shells + a pot painted green = Yoshi awesomeness! Our Nerd Home does a great job with the tutorial, so you should be ready to add these to your Easter Egg Hunt.

E.V.E from Wall-E Easter Egg DIY

EVE from Wall-E Easter Egg DIY

EVE from Wall-E tutorial via CoolMomPicks.com

As I was pinning for this post, I came across this great post on CoolMomPicks.com that had great geeky Easter Egg options, but the EVE one just struck me as genius. It is spot on! Wall-E is one of my favorite movies & what a great crafty geek spin on a wonderful character, EVE.  I would add the little green “eco” symbol in green Sharpie, too. You could have a few variations of EVE in Easter Egg form.

Minion Easter Egg DIY

Celebrate with the lovable Minions from the Despicable Me series. Minions are already fairly egg-shaped, so this one works well if you want to do hard-boiled eggs or plastic ones, as shown.  Either way, a Sharpie is your fired here. I love the googly eyes!

Legend of Zelda Rupee Easter Egg DIY

Why limit yourself to eggs? Why not create Legend of Zelda inspired Easter rupees, instead? This pin came from a great tutorial on Instructables.com by Eric Hart. It involves vacuum forming, but if you have access to those tools, why not include these?!


Well, that is all for today! In the meantime, feel free to share links to your own fandom-themed Easter Egg DIY posts in the comments.  I’ll gladly pin them to my Crafty Geek Pinterest board!

Join me next week for a look at more crafts!  Don’t forget to check out my previous Crafty Geek Corner posts, for other great DIY pins.
