How to Marble Easter Eggs with Black, Gold & Pink

DIY Spring Inspiration - How to DIY Marble Easter Eggs with gold, black & pink - This is our Bliss

Want to know my secret for beating the winter blues? Start crafting some Spring decor projects! And I’m not even kidding! We have yet to thaw out here in Chicagoland, but with March right around the corner there is no better time than now to start sprinkling Spring into the house! After making marble Christmas ornaments last year, I knew it was only a matter of time before I got the itch to marble something again! Easter eggs were next up! Today, I’m sharing a tutorial for how to marble Easter eggs with black, gold and pink! 

I’m joining 20+ bloggers today as we kick off the Seasonal Simplicity series hosted by Krista of The Happy Housie with our Spring DIY’s. Easter is a bit later this year, so thought I would get a head-start and begin crafting some new decor to use throughout the house this season. And with a house full of boys [our 3rd joined us last Summer] I jump on any and every opportunity to use pink in the decor. Remember when I painted our powder room vanity pale pink?

I’m pretty sure Spring is another perfect excuse! Don’t you agree?!

Give me all the pink right now! Tulips, tablescapes and now EGGS! And of course a touch of black and gold found it’s way onto the marble eggs as well. 

I just can’t help myself!

HOW TO MARBLE EASTER EGGS WITH BLACK, GOLD & PINK

INSTRUCTIONS

1 | Gather supplies.

  • plain white craft eggs
  • nail polish [I used black, metallic gold, pale pink, medium pink and pink glitter]
  • disposable plastic dish or bowl filled with water [room temperature works best]
  • wooden skewers or craft sticks
  • newspaper or garbage sack to protect your floor / surface

I purchased all of my supplies at Dollar Tree. Their nail polish selection is quite extensive! I was actually eyeing a couple of other pinky colors there, too. I bought the colors shown and one other one, but it turned out to be more of a coral color once I got home.

If I was going pink, I wanted pink. ๐Ÿ™‚

2 | Fill container with water.

Put on mask and gloves before you get started. The nail polish fumes can get to be quite strong, so while a mask is recommended, you should also be in a well-ventilated area. Outside is always the best place for these kinds of projects.

3 | Pour several drops of nail polish into the water one color at a time.

4 | Swirl the paint with a skewer or craft stick to create your “marble” design.

You can determine the coloring based on how much of each polish you pour in. If you want more black, use more black. If you want more of a glittery gold egg, use more of the gold and glitter polishes. Take note of the colors that might form if you mix certain colors together. 

5 | Dunk the egg with into the nail polish water turning it from side-to-side as you go.

I used the egg holder on one end of the egg and my hand to hold the other side while dipping. Your fingertips will get messy which is why the gloves are a good idea! A new swirl pattern will form creating a unique egg design each time. 

6 | Prop up on the egg holders and let dry for 1-2 hours.

My craft eggs came with these cute little stands that you can quickly assemble to use for drying. I carefully set them in a holder and then waited until they were no longer wet or sticky.

I am in looove with the varying color combos of these eggs! Some are heavy with black, others with a bit more gold. And then a couple of them have subtle touches of pink glitter, which I only added to 2-3 of the eggs. They are modern + glam + chic + edgy, all at once!

I’m thinking a little basket of these pretty black, gold and pink marble Easter eggs would make a sweet gift for a friend or neighbor. You could even gift them with some chocolates as a hostess gift [or with champagne for Easter brunch mimosas!].

Don’t forget to pin for later!:
