DIY Easter Eggs; Marbled, Stamped, Glitter Painted

Today I’ll be showing you how to make these adorable eggs just in time for Easter. I got inspired by an article I read in the most recent issue of Chatelaine magazine. Therefore, I obviously can’t take credit for the idea but felt as though it was simply too cute not to share! These eggs make a beautiful decorative piece for an Easter spread and they are super simple to recreate.

First things first, you will need a few crafting supplies in order to get started.

In the Chatelaine article, they suggest using real hard-boiled eggs. However, as I was browsing the ailes of my local dollar store, I found these cardboard eggs in the Easter section. If you can get your hands on these, I would highly recommend picking them up. This way, you don’t have to worry about your eggs cracking while you are working on them or smelling bad if you plan on keeping them for a while. You will also need some acrylic paint, letter stamps, an ink pad, some glitter, a few paint brushes, craft glue as well as a variety of nail polish shades.

 As you can see, I made three different designs, however, you can chose to make whichever ones you prefer.
 My personal favourite is this marble pattern design!
I think the reason why I love this so much is because it looks very intricate and detailed but it’s actually so simple to achieve! All you need to do is select 2-3 nail polish shades and drip a few drops of each colour into a container filled with water. Once the colours are in the water, grab a toothpick and drag the colours in different directions in order to create a marble-like pattern. You should then be left with something like this…

At this point, you can dip the egg into the water and when you remove it, you will be left with a beautiful marbled egg. I chose to go for much richer tones but you can use any colour combination you desire!

For the next design I simply gave my eggs two coats of acrylic paint and once they dried, I stamped on some Easter themed words using my letter stamp kit. This design is by far the easiest and I absolutely love the effect!

For the final design, I applied a thin layer of craft glue on the areas where I wanted the glitter to be and dipped the egg in some silver glitter. I just wanted to quickly mention that before applying the glue, I gave my eggs a couple of coats of black acrylic paint as well.

And that is pretty much all there is to it!
