DIY Sunday: Marbled Easter Eggs

Marbled Easter eggs

When your eggs look this good, go ahead and put them all in one basket. After Christmas and my birthday, Easter is my next favourite holiday. The chocolate, everything pastel, and (hopefully) balmy temperatures make this one “egg”cellent. And yes, the puns will continue throughout this post.

Every year, I try to jazz up the most important part of the table –the Easter eggs. A while ago, I glammed them up with glitter. This year, since all things marbled are trendy, why not give this pattern a turn?

Here are the easy steps that will make your eggs “marble”ous!

Tools:

Plastic eggs
Nail polish
Plastic container
Foam
Toothpicks

Instructions:

1. Fill your plastic container with lukewarm water. Pour drops of the nail polish colour you chose on different spots throughout the water surface.

2. Insert two toothpicks in the bottom of each plastic egg, where the string used to be. Dip the eggs into the water, gently swirling one or two times.

3. One out of the water, insert the toothpicks into the foam, holding the eggs up to dry for about 1-2 hours.
