Everyone seems to be doing it this spring - making Pottery Barn Knockoff egg vase filler. Here is my version.
Then I went through a very scientific process involving dipping the eggs into sample jars of paint and hanging them on unbent wire clothes hangers across our step ladder (with cardboard underneath to catch drips). I bought the blue but had the cream and brown/tan on hand already.
Two coats later, I cut off the ribbons, put all the eggs in a box, and flicked some brown craft paint on them (using a little paint brush and my finger - it was messy).
Voila! Faux egg vase filler. Not too bad for $5 in supplies. I think they go just fine with my larger Kroger eggs and my thrift store apothecary jars and bunny.
