Easy Easter Decor Ideas Using Plastic Eggs and Nail Polish
I’m a Grinch when it comes to Easter decorating. I honestly do not own any Easter decor. I despise dying Easter eggs (awful, I know) but the mess it creates puts me over the edge. This might be the extent of my Easter decorating this year. Maybe, just maybe my heart will grow three sizes and I will get some Easter decorating done over here in crazyville. That will require me to go buy some though.
I marbled some pumpkins in the fall and thought I should try that on some faux plastic eggs because who really wants to hard boil a dozen eggs? I don’t. This little craft is.the.bomb! It’s quick, easy and pretty mess free and the kids love it. I pretty much followed the same exact technique I used for the pumpkins but this time I used eggs.

- Faux Easter Eggs
- Nail Polish of your choice (I used a hodge podge of whatever I had on hand which turned out to be lots of pink and was requested by my 5 year old helper)
- Small bucket or plastic container
- Parchment paper
Side note: The plastic eggs I purchased from Amazon are pretty amazing. They are inexpensive and have only a tiny little hole in the bottom of the egg which made this project so much better. A skewer fit perfectly in that tiny hole so we were able to dip our eggs in the nail polish bath without getting our fingers dirty. Hollah!!! Makes this little craft so much better!
This is pretty easy and straight forward. Fill a small container with water large enough to dip the whole egg. Pour a few streaks of nail polish into the water and dip your egg in the nail polish bath.
Swirl the egg around a little in the water and once you take the egg out of the water you have a nice marbled effect on your egg. We were not shy about adding all different colors of pink to our water towards the end. The little one was loving this so I just let her dump how much she wanted in there…as you can clearly see.
Let them dry on parchment paper and that’s it. In my opinion this is hands down so much easier than dealing with dye and boiling eggs and all that jazz. This was a trial run and now that I know it was pretty easy I plan on getting more for the other kids to do.
If you want to save this for later, pin it here!
