Gorgeous Marbled Easter Eggs Without A Kit
You don’t need a kit to make these gorgeous Marbled Easter Eggs. Nope, use ingredients you probably already have at home and get creative with your kids. So much fun!
One of the highlights of every kid’s year is decorating Easter eggs before Easter Sunday (and the Easter Bunny) arrive. Even before my daughter knew what Easter was, she loved decorating Easter eggs.
Of course, one of the things that make Easter eggs so special is the fact that you get to hide and find them! Seriously, every year in the week preceding and after Easter, we actually do many Easter egg hunts. There is just something special about playing hide and go seek with eggs.
We have tried so many ways to decorate eggs. Painting, shaving cream, crayons, and of course.. many kits you can purchase from the store.
But I have to say this Marbled Easter Egg idea might just be the coolest. And the thing I love the most about it is you really don’t need anything fancy to create these gorgeous Easter eggs with your kids! Read on to find out how to make them!
What you will need to make these Easter Eggs:
- Boiled eggs
- Warm water
- Distilled white vinegar
- Food coloring
- Vegetable oil
- 1 container for each color
How to make these marbled Easter Eggs:
1. Prepare the first round of dipping colors by stirring 1 teaspoon vinegar and 5 to 10 drops of food coloring into each cup of water. For best results, these colors should be lighter shades.
2. Place one egg in each color and allow to rest completely covered by the dye for 1 to 3 minutes. Carefully remove eggs and transfer to paper toweling to dry.
3. Prepare the second round of dipping colors by stirring 1 teaspoon vinegar, 10 to 20 drops of food coloring, and 1 tablespoon oil into each cup of water. For best results, these colors should be darker shades.
4. Place one egg in each color and stir to coat. Allow to rest for 1 to 3 minutes for more intense colors.
5. Carefully remove eggs and transfer to paper toweling to dry.
6. To repeat in a different color, rub as much oil from the eggs as possible before returning to the oil bath. Also keep in mind that colors may blend on the eggs. Dipping repeatedly can render brown eggs.
Aren’t these gorgeous?!!!
