DIY: Marble Easter Eggs
I have been seeing these Marble Easter Eggs everywhere the past couple years, and I think they are so cool! So this year I decided I was going to tackle making these puppies. They are super simple and there are so many color variations you can do.
I have outlined below the basic idea and materials that I used. Feel free to make these your own!
- Nail Polish – in whatever color you would like. I used OPI (Pamplona Purple)
- Hard Boiled Eggs at room temp.
- Plastic Tupperware with some depth, should be able to submerge the eggs. I would recommend using one you don’t mind throwing away.
- Rubber Gloves – I cannot stress this enough, otherwise you will look like you have martian hands.
- Stir stick I used a the skinny end of a plastic spoon.
- Room – luke warm temperature water
- Nail polish remover – for clean up, if needed.
- Drying holder – in a pinch you can use some foam and pins.
For you visual folks, here is a photo of all of the materials:
Step By Step:
- Fill the Tupperware container about 3/4 of the way up with room/luke warm temp water. **If the water is too cold, the polish will sink and you will not get the desired “marbled” look.
- Add in a few drops of your nail polish. Please note: the more polish you put in the darker the color will be. **Side Note: Originally I was going to do multi-color marble, but multiple colors didn’t seem to turn out as nice. Please disregard my photo with multiple color drops. (See Blooper Reel at bottom of this post)
- Gently stir the water and the polish until the water looks marbled.
- Put on your rubber gloves, and dip the eggs in the water mixture and swirl.
- Place the eggs on your drying rack, until they are dry (took about 5-10 mins).
You are all done! See how easy was that?!
Again, this was definitely trial and error! I HIGHLY recommend sticking to one color at a time.
