Baking Soda Easter Eggs { Easter Ornaments }

Baking Soda Easter Eggs ~ I’ve been wanting to make salt dough ornaments for a while now and when I looked at the recipes I was kind of disappointed with how long they take to make. Ok, they aren’t long to make, but require many hours in the oven. When you have kids who are excited to make something, waiting 3 hours plus cooling time.. is just too long.

I was really excited when I came across a Baking Soda Dough recipe from UrbanBlissLife!! I actually featured her recipe back in December at From Dream To Reality. She had created gorgeous Christmas ornaments, along with a couple of Star Wars ornaments! Very cool! The baking soda dough recipe is great! It requires 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1 cup baking soda, 3/4 cup water and only takes about 1 hour in the oven at 175 degrees F.

Supplies to decorate baking soda Easter eggs

I used the dot stickers to create perfect circles. I applied them onto the eggs and painted over them. Once the paint was dry, I removed the stickers. I used the dot tool to create little dots on the eggs.

Here’s the step by step tutorial for a stripe egg.

Step 1: Apply patterning tape onto the baking soda ornament. Step 2: Apply acrylic paints onto the baking soda egg. Step 3: Once the ornament is dry, you can apply glitter paint. (OR apply glitter directly onto wet paint) Step 4: Remove patterning tape. Step 5: Tie a piece of Bakers twine onto the ornament.

I actually made the ornaments with my Mom and my daughters on Sunday. It was so much fun! My Mom enjoyed painting them so much that she asked me to make more Easter ornaments so that she can paint them with my nieces and nephews. Check out the AWESOME Easter Bunny she painted on one of the baking soda ornaments.

    I remember my mother making salt/flour dough when I was a child. Because I’m acutely allergic to corn, I wouldn’t work with the corn starch dough unless you paid me BIG money. The salt/flour dough would air dry given enough time.

    I don’t have children of my own, but I do give crafting some exercise with my roommate’s great-nephew and niece. However, since they are being brought up with out religion and my faith doesn’t really do the bunny/egg thing, I’ll probably pass on “Easter” crafts.

    I might do the research to discover the salt dough recipe that my mom used, that way we can make something and the next time they come, we can paint them.

    We regularly do the salt-flour dough to sub for Play-Doh, but it cracks too much for my liking for ornaments. I have a huge bag of costco baking soda that might need to be pulled out for this craft.

    I’ve never seen a baking soda dough recipe before. Will have to give this a try. Pinned. Would love to share it on my weekly roundup (with link back).

    These are so fun! What a great craft to do maybe instead of colouring boiled eggs…these ones will last year after year! I think I’ll add these to our Easter fun list!

  5. says

    I love, Love, LOVE this craft idea! I agree with Jo-Anna in that I like this a lot better than working with hard boiled eggs every year. These ones would be a keeper!

  6. says

    Your eggs are adorable. What a great idea to do for Easter. Why is it that we only think of doing baking soda dough at Christmas and not at other holidays. Crazy!
    Have a great week,

    These are really cute, but more importantly to me is that I had no idea you could make baking soda ornaments. I’ve never heard of them before! We don’t have a kids, but I can definitely see us making these soon. =)

  8. says

    Wow, these eggs are so cute! We have dough ornaments still left from when I was a child, so to see an updated version, it inspires me to get in the kitchen with the kids and get baking. Love these! I can’t wait to try these!! Yours are adorable.
