Watercolor Easter Egg Hunt Invitation + Printable

watercolor Easter Egg Hunt Invitation

Okay. I will admit it.  I love to watercolor.  As far as expertise goes, I am at about a first grade watercolor level (and I use my preschoolers watercolors) but watercolors don’t discriminate! They don’t care if you are Bob Ross or Grey Luster Girl! They love you all the same and they are very forgiving.  My sister asked me to help out with an Easter egg hunt she was doing and said that she needed invitations.  I looked around for inspiration and found these cool Easter hunt invites from Minted.  Immediately I thought of my good friend, the watercolor palette and wanted to make my own watercolor Easter egg hunt invitations.

Outline for Water Color Egg InviteI designed my invitations with black type and the egg portion of the invite was printed with very light grey ink.  It was so light in fact that I had to turn the invite at an angle and bump up the contrast so that you could see it.   I used my daughters watercolors to follow the outline.

I made the eggs all sorts of colors and all the invites together looked like a big colorful Easter egg collection.

Want to make your own watercolor Easter egg invitations? You can download a printable with my design HERE for free!! If you decide to download it, it would make me so happy if you would pin one of the pics to Pinterest for others to find.  I would also love to see anything you make with it!  Please remember it is for personal use only!
