DIY Water Marble Easter Eggs

I had so much fun decorating these eggs and making this video, I hope you enjoy!
You will need:

Eggs (paper / plastic / real)
Nail polish
Cup with water (use paper or plastic, not Styrofoam like me!)
Toothpick or skewer


Drop a few drops of nailpolish into your water cup in concentric circles.
Use your toothpick or skewer to swirl and swoosh the colors around in your cup.
Dip your egg into the cup, and use your toothpick to clean up around the edges.
Lift your egg from the water, and let it dry on the side.

I will probably figure out a way to string these lovelies up on some ribbon and use them for spring décor around the house! How do you use Easter eggs for your spring décor? Let me know in the comments! ❤

And check out this new twist using glitter nail polish to make sparkly Easter eggs in my new post! Click here to see it 🙂

      Water marbling is a lot of fun, but it definitely takes some practice and experimentation to get it right. There can be different things going on, and I think it does depend on the type of nailpolish, how thin / thick it is, and also if it is old / dried up a bit. I also read somewhere that the water temperature can make a difference, so experiment and see if it makes a difference for you! Hope this helps, and thanks for reading 🙂

    You can glue the eggs on a wreath with either colored grass or flowers. You can also get a wide brim hat and glue to that and decorate for a door hanging or wherever you like to

      If you are using real eggs, I would not recommend eating them afterwards! Eggshells are porous, so chemicals may seep in. I would recommend trying this craft with plastic eggs, I was using plaster ones and a year later they have survived well! Thanks for reading! 🙂

    This is my first time seeing your blog,,i love the way the eggs marble…I see you with the pick on the sides of the egg but cannot see what exactly your doing with it….

      Hi Bella, and happy easter! I am using the pick to pick up some of the leftovers that did not stick to the egg. That helps the design stay clean when you pull the egg out of the water! 🙂 Hope this helps!
