We have another colorful and fun Easter egg DIY craft project for you today. Watercolor is all the rage right now and these eggs are so simple to make! Using our Precious Egg Easter card as inspiration, twin sisters Malissa & Machelle from A Joyful Riot show us how to create these festive silver striped Easter eggs.
Watercolor Easter Egg DIY
What You’ll Need:
- Hard boiled eggs
- Food dye in red and yellow
- paint brush
- paper towels
- Start by filling some cups with ½ cup warm water and 1 tsp vinegar. Add several drops of yellow and one drop of red to one and about 20 drops of red to another cup.
- Drip a drop or two of the food coloring onto another surface that you can dab at it from, such as a plate or spoon.
- 3. Dip your brush into the orange water cup and dab that onto your egg. Allow the drips to swirl around as you tilt the egg and just flow around it freely. If you want it to stop spreading, just dab gently at the drips with a paper towel.
- 4. Dip your brush into the red water and do the same thing at various points on the egg. Also dip your brush into the straight coloring dye and dab that onto parts of the egg, especially where it is already wet so it will spread a little.
- 5. Pat drips off with a paper towel and either hold till dry or place somewhere gently where not much of it is touching another surface.
