Hey ya’ll it’s Fri-YAY!!! Next week I will be hosting a scavenger hunt for my kids and their friends. I absolutely love being a mom and getting really crafty with them. Last year, we tried dying eggs with store bought Easter egg dye but I didn’t really like how the eggs turned out. This year, I want to do something different so I decided to take some cues from one of my favorite YouTuber’s/bloggers ,What’sUp Moms, and try a couple of their Dye Free Easter Egg recipes.
These eggs came out so cute and they were so simple to make. I can’t wait for my kids and their buddies to see it, they are going to love them!!! See below how to make these adorable and fun Easter Eggs for the children in your lives.
- Hard-boiled Eggs
- Acrylic paint (yellow, red,white, blue)
- Black Sharpie Marker
Paint hard-boiled eggs yellow. I used two coats of yellow paint. Once dried, draw emoji faces onto egg using a black sharpie and paint! So simple and just too cute, really!!!
- Black craft eggs or hard-boiled eggs painted black
- Acrylic paint (purple, blue, teal,pink, gold, white)
- Stiff Paint brush
I found some black chalk painted crafts eggs at Target in the dollar area and my kids have been decorating these eggs all week. I love them because they can draw and reuse them whenever they feel like it. Using a nice stiff paint brush, I applied purple, blue, teal, pink and gold, one at a time in swirl like motions. To create a bit of texture onto the egg, I lightly reapplied the mixture of colors with a sponge. Apply gold last for a hint of shimmer. Of course, no galaxy is complete without stars so to create the illusion of stars, I used white paint (mix with a drop of water to thin out paint) and flicked it onto the egg with a paint brush. So nifty, my daughter is going to love these for sure!!!
Nail Polish Marbled Eggs:
- Nail polish
In a plastic bowl, fill half way with water and desired nail polish colors. Mix nail polish with toothpicks and dip egg into bowl. I would use gloves if you have them because this can get your fingers messy!!! This project was so simple and the eggs came out so beautiful, I adore them!!!
Lastly, you can add glitter to any painted egg for that extra sparkle to any egg hunt party!!!
Hope you all loved these eggs as much as I do. Happy Easter everyone!!!
