Marbled eggs

26/03/2016

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.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

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.

METHOD:
  • 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.
Happy Easter my friends - hope yours is full of laughter, hugs and sunshine.
