Black Glue Easter Pictures

I do love it when a craft turns out so much better than you thought it would. I was excited to make these black glue pictures, but I honestly did not think that they would end up looking as good as they have. They are really vibrant, there is just something about the black glue that makes these pictures really pop. They would make the perfect pictures to decorate a room or classroom for spring/ Easter.

Make sure to follow our Easter board  on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own black glue Easter pictures you will need:

  • Glue*
  • Black paint
  • Paper
  • Water colour block paints
  • Scissors
  • Hair dryer (optional)

* I used Elmer’s gel glue which worked really well, but I am sure normal PVA glue would work just as well.

The first thing you need to do is add some black paint to your glue. The glue needs to be in a squeezie bottle so that you can really control where the glue is going. I added our paint straight into the glue bottle and then gave it a really good shaking to make sure it was all mixed together.

On a piece of paper draw your outline for your picture; we did Easter eggs and tulips (we used a cookie cutter as our template). Then add in your details. Once that is done, use the glue to go over the outline that you have just made.


If you are anything like me, I dislike having to wait for things to dry, so this is were our trusty hair dryer comes in. I gave each picture a quick blast with the dryer to help speed up the processes. As a side note, if you decide not to wait for it to dry the glue does tend to run into the paint.


Fill in your picture with paint; we used a small palate of block paints, that I got from Tiger for around £2.


We tried using both normal paper and filter paper to see what would happen. Although they turned out nicely, the normal paper looked better.

Once the paint is dry (you could always use the hair dryer again), cut out your pictures and stick them up to add an Easter feel to your room.

YC and I had a really enjoyable afternoon making ours, we spent around an hour doing them, even when I put Blue Peter on she continued to do this rather than watch it with her brother.
