I’m so psyched that it’s Easter season! It brings some of my favorite projects, as you can see. I really got into this DIY, and I’m super duper psyched to introduce it to the world! (It’s like my baby!)
DIY Banana Split Easter Eggs
- Faux eggs
- Acrylic paint – brown, pink, mint, light yellow, and multiple bright colors (for sprinkles)
- Brown puffy paint
- Air-dry clay
- Soap dish
- Hot glue + hot glue gun
- Cotton balls
- Red pom poms
- Thin cardboard, or brown paper (for peanuts)
- First things first, you need to shape the bananas out of the air-dry clay, and let them dry overnight. The only clay skills you’ll need for this part is being able roll clay into logs. Roll out two “logs,” and round off the ends. Next, take a knife and cut it in half length-wise as if it were a real banana. If needed, reshape the banana halves if it got squished in the cutting process. Set those aside to dry for 16-24 hours. Tip: If the clay is difficult to work with, and/or it’s dry, just simply add a little water.
- Next, paint your eggs with 1-2 coats of paint. Let them dry.
- When your bananas are dry, or almost dry, paint them with the light yellow acrylic paint. Let them dry (you can run a cool hair dryer over them if you wanna speed up the drying process).
- With your bananas and eggs dry, assemble them in the soap dish, then glue them down with hot glue.
- Here comes a super fun part! Take the brown puff paint, AKA hot fudge, and “top” the eggs with either a drizzled or poured pattern. To get the poured look, just draw on the drip-y look, and fill it in. Don’t be afraid to make it thick! To get the drizzled look, first cut off the tip of the puff paint nozzle so that the hole is larger. This helps the “chocolate” come out thicker and smoother. Squeeze the bottle, and just drizzle the paint across over the eggs and the bananas. Set it aside to dry overnight.
- To add the whipped cream, take a cotton ball and cut it in half. Hot glue the cotton ball-halves to the tops of the eggs.
- Hot glue the red pom poms to the tops of the whipped cream where desired.
- To make peanuts, simply cut little bits out of either brown construction paper or out of thin cardboard (the kind that breakfast cereal boxes are made out of), add little dabs of hot glue to the backs, and gently press them onto the “whipped cream.” To make sprinkles, use tooth picks to add small dabs of different kinds of bright acrylic paints. Add the “sprinkles” wherever desired.
Then it’s finished! (Just don’t eat it, as tempting as it looks!)
