Ever since I began using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint over 3 years ago, I’ve been in love. A lot of people are intimidated by the mixing and the fact that it comes in a powder form, but the versatility and flexibility of the paint provides so many endless options that for an expert furniture refinisher and painter like myself, it ends up being my “go to” paint. It’s just so very forgiving.
We’re having family in town for Easter so when I came across some wooden craft eggs at Target the other day, I knew immediately what I could do with them PLUS some Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint.
Not to mention the price on the wooden eggs at Target was perfect. Six wooden eggs for $5.00 is a fantastic and budget friendly price!
I decided to use them as placecard holders, but since they are egg shaped, they needed a little modification. I asked the hubby if he would mind trimming off the bottom and putting a notch in the top.
Once they were prepped, they were ready for Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint!
I gathered the supplies (cups, spoons & some chip brushes) and mixed up some fun Spring colors: Mustard Seed Yellow, French Enamel, Eulalie’s Sky, Layla’s Mint, Boxwood and Linen. And since milk paint is an all natural, zero VOC paint, I asked the kids to help paint the eggs. They were more than excited to help mom with a project!
We had paint everywhere, but it was so much fun! It didn’t take very long at all, and this could even be done when family arrives for your holiday. Milk Paint only takes 20-30 minutes to dry between coats, so you could easily have the kids paint their own placecard holder as soon as they arrive for the holiday, let the eggs dry while the children are playing and they would be ready in time to use for dinner! It is seriously that easy!
Once they were dry, I gave them a light sanding with 220 grit (very fine) sandpaper to smooth out the paint. Because milk paint is an all natural paint made from the Earth, it has a rough, gritty texture to it (sort of like sand), but can be transformed to a buttery smooth finish with a very light touch of 220 grit sandpaper between coats.
(**Please note: the can of Hemp Oil you see in the photo is no longer available.
Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Hemp Oil is only available in plastic dispenser bottles now.**)
They loved getting to massage the oil all over each egg and watching the color deepen with each application. And yes, I had them use their precious little hands because Hemp Oil is a 100% all natural, plant based, food grade oil so there is no need to use a tool to apply it. It was also a great sensory activity for them, so keep that in mind too!
These sweet little eggs make the perfect place card holders for a kids table, don’t you agree?
I even had them write the family names to make them more of a part of the preparations and celebration than just showing up and eating. Involving the children whenever possible is always a good idea and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint brought all of us together!
Tomorrow, I will show you the adult table version of these eggs! You won’t want to miss it!
