Marbled Easter egg tutorial

Anya Jensen11th March 2018

I have been looking for new ideas to make our own Easter eggs for decoration – something we do every year. The girls are getting bigger, and we were looking for a more ‘grown-up’ version to try. It seems that marbled eggs have been a popular choice on Pinterest this year, and after realising just how easy they are to make, we opted for those. We had a good old chat about colours and ended up with a muted palette of grey and pale dusty green. We were all so delighted with the result, and couldn’t wait to share these with you.

  •  White eggs – ours were blown eggs, but you can also use hard boiled eggs – just remember they are not edible afterwards.
  • Nail varnish – any colour will do.
  • A plastic container – I threw mine out afterwards.
  • Rubber gloves – trust me on this one 😉
  • A stick to stir.
  •  Fill the plastic container with lukewarm water – circa half full.
  • Take the nail varnish and ‘drip’ 2-5 drops of nail varnish into the water.
  • Stir with the stick – the water will look ‘marbled’ with nail varnish dots in it.
  • Wearing plastic gloves, pop the egg into the water – and ‘roll it around’ catching the nail varnish on both sides. You could use tongs if you fancy – just remember they’d be covered in nail varnish. This is quite messy, so be careful not to get the nail varnish everywhere.
  • Leave to dry completely.
  • We have 2 colours on our eggs, so if you want to do the same, repeat the steps above – but make sure the first layer is completely dry before you go again.
  • Have fun with it.

Only one week and then it is time for the Easter break – so you have plenty of time to get on with this fun DIY.
