DIY Easter Eggs: Marble Easter Eggs
Easter will be here before you know it, which means it is time to color Easter eggs! If you are looking for ways to go beyond the regular dye then these marble Easter eggs are perfect for you! They are super simple, quick and super fun to make. Plus, they look so impressive!
- Room Temperature Water
- Cheap Nail Polish
- Nail Polish Remover
- Plastic Gloves
- Craft Foam
- Flat head pins
Prepare your eggs. You can hard boil your eggs or use a small needle to blow the eggs out. If you blow the eggs out, you will be able to save them and use them year after year!
In a piece of craft foam, place nails in. This will allow your eggs to dry without having to be fully set down.
Fill a small bowl with room temperature water.
Pour nail polish in a swirling pattern on the water.
If the water is the right temperature, the polish should float to the top. You can mix different colors or stick to one color. Use a toothpick to create a swirling pattern.
Put your gloves on. Dunk your egg into the polish water and set on the nails to dry. You will be able to usually get half of the egg dyed at once.
Allow to dry and then repeat on the other side if desired.
A few tips:
- You will thank me for the gloves 🙂 Keep nail polish remover on hand if you need it, but it shouldn’t be too messy.
- Empty your bowl often. Having the right temperature of water is key!
- Use cheap nail polish. We did these last year and I let the kids use the nail polish I had on hand. I didn’t realize how much it was going to take. My poor, good nail polish! haha
- I dye the top half of the eggs, let them dry and do the bottom half. But do whatever is easiest for you!
- If you blow out the eggs, you can reuse your marble Easter eggs year after year.
