5 Easter Crafts Using Posca Pens

We’ve tried 5 Easter crafts using Posca pens over the last few days. Posca pens are paint pens designed to be used on many different surfaces. They are perfect for so many crafts! We received 2 packs of Posca Pens to help with our Easter crafts. We received an 8 pack of standard and an 8 pack of sparkling Posca Pens. Posca Pens are a Uniball product with a large range of colours & tip sizes for different projects. Posca Pens are water-based and non-toxic, unlike alcohol-based pens the colour doesn’t bleed through paper/card/fabrics.

5 Easter Crafts

Decorating Plastic Eggs

Decorating Plastic Eggs With Posca Pens

Our first Easter craft was decorating hanging egg decorations using Posca pens. Eva is a big fan of Posca pens having discovered them at a MetalArts event and loved them. She quickly pretended she couldn’t paint properly with paint and a brush after spotting new Posca pens. She decorated an egg using some of the new standard colours and a few left over from my last pack and came up with this design.

Using the pack of standard colour Posca pens to decorate an egg myself, I was impressed with how well they covered the plastic. As you can see both eggs turned out really colourful and the Posca pens work brilliantly on these plastic decorations.

Colourful Egg Cups

 

Next, we decorated egg cups using the standard Posca pens. Cheating slightly as the flowers were part of the egg cup design, we got to work. We started off colouring those & adding more details & colours as we went.Decorating Egg Cups With Posca Pens

We then added some colourful Easter eggs all the way around the bottom. I was impressed with how easy it was to use the Posca pens to decorate the egg cup. Posca pens are fantastic for such a range of surfaces!

Easter Cards

Mrs Mactivity Easter Card Printable & Posca Pens

Of course, it wouldn’t be easter without a lovely card so we visited Mrs Mactivity’s site, we love her printable resources designed by Polly Love. We found this lovely Silhouette Easter card which the girls think is really cute! We printed the card out on to pink card and used the Sparkling Posca pens to brighten it up. I also used the white Posca pen from the standard pack for the bunnies fluffy ears & chest.

Numbering Bunny Footprints

Posca Pens are great, even for simple things like numbering bunny footprints for an Easter egg hunt! They are so bright & vibrant, you can’t miss them!

Easter Masks

Posca Pens & Face Mask

Masks are something the girls really enjoy decorating for all kinds of occasions. These had a felt texture on the top & the Posca pens worked really well. I had expected the colour to seep across a little but we didn’t have this issue which was a relief! Eva decided to make her’s a rainbow & bunny mask. Face Mask Decorated with Posca Pens

Admittedly that bunny does remind of the Hell Bunny Logo haha! Eva is really happy with her mask and loves being able to use all the colours without them running into each other. You kind of expect paint pens to leak and run everywhere but Posca pens are amazing & once you get the flow going, so easy to use. They are so brighht & vibrant and we are totally in love with the Sparkling Posca Pens, you will no doubt see them featured on the blog again soon!

Have you used Posca Pens for Easter crafts before?

 

 

Rustic Purple Flower Pen From Rustic By Marney

I received a Rustic Purple Flower Pen from Rustic By Marney for me to review. You may have read Melissa Marney’s guest post I shared yesterday – How Creativity helps me manage my anxiety and depression. Many of us craft as a way to manage our mental health like Melissa does. Crafting is extremely therapeutic and benefits ourselves and often others too with our gorgeous creations.

Melissa creates beautiful rustic wedding stationary and gifts for her, hand making each beautiful rustic piece. I enjoy sharing products I love from small businesses where I can, especially when they make stunning products like this. As mentioned in Melissa’s guest post yesterday, she found it difficult to find exactly what she wanted for her own wedding when it came to stationary. She had always put herself down when it came to crafting but Rustic by Marney was born after realising she had a talent.
