Easter Eggs: Dipping, Marbling, and Speckling

Easter Eggs Three

If variety is the spice of life, we’ve got plenty over here today to give Easter just a bit more flavor this year.  I’ve got three ways to decorate your eggs at three different difficulty levels.

First, the marbled eggs follow the same exact set up as my marbled paper, which is pretty easy, but the difficulty comes in for the dip.  You’ve got to delicately graze the shell over the paint and do your best not to dip at all.  You want to pick the paint up off of the starch, so don’t dunk.  Carefully grazing your egg while holding onto the ends is a bit time consuming, but they look beautiful. For the speckled eggs, you just use the store-bought blue dye and fling a little gold paint onto the shell with a wooden skewer. And third, if you’ve got some colorful washi tape sitting around, just wrap up your little eggs for the easiest route to awesome.

    These are so pretty…I’m really loving the marbled one!

      Thanks, Valerie! Just an FYI, for some strange reason, the marbling worked better on the brown eggs and didn’t quite work on the white. I’m not sure why!

    Oh my gorgeousness. These are stunning!! Although I’m not surprised (you are a DIY queen), I am so impressed.

    Amazing work, as always.

      That is so sweet! I actually did a full two dozen in just a couple of hours, so it doesn’t take a super long time or anything, just a steady hand :)

    How fun! I always liked non-traditional egg colors and styles. They are cute enough to want to leave out for a while — maybe I’ll stick to the fake variety. :)
