With Easter just around the corner it is time to indulge in a little Easter Egg fun!  You may have grown up decorating eggs, but just because you’re adulting now doesn’t mean you can’t do a little DIY crafting.

Easter Egg decorating is a fun tradition whether done with friends, family, or just by yourself to get into the new-season spirit.  We are sharing three super easy Easter projects that are a festive activity everyone will enjoy!  Keep scrolling for all the DIY details!

 

Easter Egg Bath Bomb

PHOTO: Style Me Pretty Living

Materials

  • 6 tbs almond oil
  • 4 tsp essential oil in whatever scent you’d like
  • 3 tbs water
  • 3 oz citric acid powder
  • 8 oz cornstarch
  • 8 oz epsom salts
  • Food colouring
  • Glitter
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Wax paper
  • Baking tray
  • Fluffy towel

Directions

Whisk together dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

In a smaller bowl, mix wet ingredients and add a few drops of food colouring.

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix together with your hands. The mixture should be moist and clump together in your hands. If it is too dry and not sticking together, you can add a bit more water but be careful because you don’t want it to be too wet.

Pack mixture into Easter egg molds and let sit several minutes.

Cover a baking sheet with the fluffy towel and place a sheet of wax paper on top. The towel will help keep the eggs from flattening out on the bottom. Carefully remove bath bombs from molds and place on baking sheet. Let dry 2 days before placing in Easter baskets!

 

Glitter Tape Eggs

Materials

  • Glitter Masking Tape (available at craft store, like Spotlight)
  • Brown eggs
  • X-Acto knife
  • Pencil

 

Directions

Hard boil or blow out your eggs.

Use a pencil to draw backwards letters on the backside of the tape (the peel-away part). You can trace stencils or fonts printed from your computer, or you can freehand the letters. You can also cut out simple shapes, like triangles, to create patterns on your eggs.

Use the X-Acto knife to cut out each letter and press firmly onto the egg. Voilà!

 

Gold-Dipped Marble Eggs

Materials

  • Grape juice
  • White vinegar
  • White eggs
  • Glass or metal bowl
  • Gold paint

 

Directions

Hard boil or blow out your eggs. (If hard boiled, keep in mind these eggs will not be edible later. If blown out, you will need to place something on top of the bowl to keep the eggs covered in the dye).

Mix equal parts grape juice and vinegar in a bowl, enough to submerge your eggs. Place eggs in the bowl and leave overnight.

The next day, remove eggs from the bowl and rinse off. Use a paper towel to rub away the foamy layer, revealing the marbled surface.

Dip egg partially into a cup of gold paint. Place upside-down in egg carton to dry.

Place in a bowl on your Easter table to enjoy!
