Marbling eggs 2

Easter is upon us and with this fun craft activity you can create an Easter centrepiece for your table and everyone can get involved in the making.

People all over the world are celebrating Easter by eating chocolate eggs, going on egg hunts and inviting friends and family over for an Easter meal.

This year make your table stand out with this lovely decoration that will wow your guests because of its unique design as no 2 eggs will come out the same.

The children will love marbling too as it's a lot of fun and you can mix and match as many colours as you like. Have a go at creating this awesome centrepiece that is so easy to make, it will make you want to marble everything you see!

You will need:

  • Polystyrene eggs
  • Marbling inks
  • Ribbon
  • Drawing pins
  • Water
  • Plastic container/tub
  • Gloves
  • Scissors
  • Willow

Alternatively keep scrolling for step by step instructions :) 

Step 1:

Cut approx 30 cmm of the willow and stick the egg on top.

Step 2:

Add marbling inks to the water in the plastic container. Put in 10 drops to start off with, add as many drops in as you want. The more you add, the more consistent colours will look.

Step 3:

Cut off a little bit of the willow to use as a stirring stick to create your unique patterns on water.

Step 4:

Put on gloves and carefully dip the egg in the water solution. Marbling inks are oily and very tricky to get off so use gloves and be careful as the egg will jump back up.

Step 5: 

Make a bow from the ribbon and attach it to the top of the egg with a drawing pin. It will be easier to dry this way.

Step 6:

Hang up and leave to dry for approx. 15-20 minutes.

Great session creating quality keepsakes

I loved this session! Sarah is fantastic at helping you capture your baby’s hand/foot prints on seasonal items (this one was Christmas). The quality of the products used are excellent and will be great keepsakes. You can also purchase additional items which was ideal for Christmas gifts for grandparents. The venue is lovely and the cakes are amazing! This was my second session and I’m looking forward to the next ones in the new year!
