We only have one week until easter!
One of my favorite Easter traditions is eating egg-shaped chocolate candy while decorating pastel colored Easter eggs!
There are so many different ways to dye eggs — using pre-made kits, food coloring, paint, even silk ties — so each year I try something different in an attempt to be adventurous!
This year, I decided to not only decorate the outside of my easter eggs, but to also fill them with confetti (I mean, who doesn’t love a little confetti?)
A few months ago, we featured these colorful DIY Thank You Cards on the blog, which used a 2-ingredient marbling method to decorate the front.
To my surprise, this easy marbling method also works on easter eggs! These beautiful, colorful eggs are incredibly fun to make and only require a few household ingredients!
Let’s get crackin’!
What you’ll need:
- Shaving cream
- Food dye
- Flat dish
- Cups to catch the egg centers
How to make it:
- Begin by poking a small hole at the bottom of your egg using a pin. Allow egg-centers to drain entirely before starting the dying process.
- In a separate pan, spread shaving cream (not gel) across the bottom, placing drops of food coloring in various parts of the shaving cream layer.
- Using a fork or stirring stick, swirl the colors throughout the shaving cream.
- Drop your drained and dried eggs into the pan and roll throughout the colored shaving cream mixture.
- Set the eggs aside to allow the color to settle in. Let them sit for 30-45 minutes.
- While your eggs are soaking in the color, make your confetti!
- Using Tissue paper and scissors, cut small squares or circles to fit inside the middle of your eggs.
- Once your eggs are ready, use a paper towel to wipe off the excess colored shaving cream and allow the eggs to dry for 10 minutes.
- Finally, fill your egg with confetti and cover the bottom hole with a small piece of tissue paper.
