Yes, I am an adult with no children who still decorates eggs every year. Why? It’s a blank canvas with endless possibilities, and there are always new techniques to try.
So hard-boil up a dozen or use an egg blower and a dremel to drain the eggshells without cracking them, allowing you to keep these decorated eggs for years to come. Then, try one of these fun new ways to dress up your eggs.
These industrial-inspired eggs are perfect for industrial-modern design lovers! Abby Larson, Founder/Editor of Style Me Pretty Living, used grape juice and vinegar to create the cool, concrete-inspired effect. Stop there for a version you can turn into egg salad — or add a gold accent for a decorative-only egg with lots of sparkle.
- grape juice
- white vinegar
- white eggs
- glass or metal bowl
- gold paint
Step 1: Hard boil or blow out your eggs. (If hard boiled, keep in mind these eggs will not be edible later. If blown out, you will need to place something on top of the bowl to keep the eggs covered in the dye).
Step 2: Mix equal parts grape juice & vinegar in a bowl, enough to submerge your eggs. Place eggs in the bowl and leave overnight.
Step 3: The next day, remove eggs from the bowl and rinse off. Use a paper towel to rub away the foamy layer, revealing the marbled surface.
Step 4: Dip egg partially into a cup of gold paint. Place upside-down in egg carton to dry.
Step 5: Place in a bowl on your Easter table to enjoy!
