With each passing holiday, we’re overwhelmed with the feeling that 2016 is passing by quicker than ever! We can’t be the only ones who think that Valentine’s Day was just yesterday, and are in denial that Easter is just a few weeks away. It’s never too early to start planning for the holidays however, and here at Morning Lavender we don’t just want to provide you with the perfect holiday outfits. We love bringing you new and fresh ways to celebrate with your friends and family! This month we’re sharing this modern and feminine DIY Marbleized Easter Eggs tutorial that will have all of your girlfriends asking for a tutorial (not to mention they’ll look incredible on your Instagram feed!). This DIY is a bit more challenging than our previous ones, but definitely rewarding after you trial and error your way to fabulous looking eggs! Here’s how to achieve the look:
- Hard boiled eggs or craft eggs (if using hard boiled eggs like we did, keep in mind they’re no longer edible after decorating)
- Nail polish colors of your choosing (we used a lavender of course, but can totally imagine a glittery gold or pretty pastel looking amazing too)
- Plastic tupperware container you don’t mind tossing
- Room temperature water (this is important since cold water will make the nail polish sink)
- Swirling stick
- Drying rack (we made ours with a white foam board and a few t-pins)
- Fill your tupperware container with room temperature water, or if the water is cold let it sit out for a few minutes.
- Pour a few drops of your nail polish into your container. The nail polish should float on top of the water.
- Swirl the nail polish around to the design of your liking. This is the trial and error part so experiment until you’re pleased with the look!
- Carefully and quickly submerge your egg into your design and rotate your egg until it is completely covered in the marbleized nail polish.
- Quickly pull out your egg and set it on your drying rack.
- Clean out the nail polish after each egg so that you don’t get gooey clumps on your eggs.
- Repeat steps 1-6 for each egg!
Have fun with this one, and experiment with the different shapes and swirls until you get the look you’re going for! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, we sure did! You can display your super chic eggs when you’re done in this gold lined porcelain egg tray we found at Target here (it’s also part of a spend $60 for a $15 gift card promotion at the moment!)
