This egg dyeing process is really easy. We also share and easy tutorial on how to make your own Egg drying rack from a floral foam brick.
I have many memories of dyeing eggs as a kid. They were all of using short plastic cups and adding my hard boiled egg to colored water. If I was lucky, we got a kit with little paper stands or even stickers – stickers were my favorite. We then displayed the eggs in Easter grass – my how times changes with the evolution of Pinterest!
Many of these supplies you likely have in your home. Trying gathering old nail polish bottles that are almost out, otherwise pick up this Cheap Nail Polish set. We suggest gloves to keep the marbled pattern off your hands, but have some nail polish remover near by for a quick and easy clean up.

How to Make Marbled Easter Eggs:
First, prepare your eggs. You can hard boil your eggs or use a small needle to blow the eggs out. If you blow the eggs out, you will be able to save them and use them year after year!
Second, you want to prep your drying rack.
In a piece of craft foam, place flat head pins in. This will allow your eggs to dry without having to be fully set down. You will appreciate this as it will keep your dyed eggs from becoming smudged!
Once your eggs are cooled, fill a small bowl with room temperature water.
Next pour nail polish in a swirling pattern on the water. If the water is the right temperature, the polish should float to the top. This is your goal!
You can mix different colors or stick to one color. We prefer a good swirl of colors.
To get a good swirl, use a toothpick to create a swirling pattern.
Put your gloves on to protect your skin. You do get some on you when placing your egg in the mixture. Dunk your egg into the polish water and set on the Easter egg drying rack to dry. You will be able to usually get half of the egg dyed at once, so have patience!
Allow to dry and then finally repeat on the other side if desired.
Enjoy your eggs! I get you will get many compliments! Don’t forget our other Easter Egg Dyeing Ideas!How to Make Marbled Easter Eggs using Nail Polish and Easter Eggs plus easy DIY Egg Drying Rack Tutorial. #FrugalCouponLiving #Easter #EasterEggs
