DIY Modern Easter Eggs


I'm not a huge fan of pastels. And often, Easter decorations are pastel heavy. So I decided to go rogue and create some bold, colorful eggs with metallic gold accents. Here's what I came up with....


For these orange-y pink eggs, I used 12 drops of red food coloring in a half cup of boiling water with 1 teaspoon of white vinegar. Leave them in for 3-6 minutes, depending on how bright you'd like them to be.


Next, use an oil-based gold paint pen to draw designs on your eggs. Here are some fun pattern ideas that I drew inspiration from.


For these more geometric slate blue eggs, I used about 8 drops of blue, 6 drops of green, and 2 drops of red and the some amount of vinegar and water as before.



And I had to include this little experiment, too... an ombré egg! Dip just the bottom in the dye for about a minute, then dip it in further for another minute, and continue this process until the entire egg is submerged.

Happy Easter everyone!
