DIY Ombre Easter Eggs

DIY Ombre Easter eggs – I’m in love!! I have been so busy lately that I haven’t done too many Easter crafts, yet alone even decorate for Easter!! With some of my family visiting this weekend and me hosting a small Easter breakfast, I decided it was time to make an Easter decoration and of course it involves dying eggs! It’s an easy project that can be used to decorate a mantel or as a centerpiece for a long table. I chose one color of dye and created a variety of shades by leaving them in the colored water for different amounts of time, creating the ombre look. Try 30 seconds, then 1 minute, 1:30, 2 minutes and so on. There’s no exact science, so have fun!
I’ve had the adorable cupcake stands for awhile now (I bought them from here) and thought they were the perfect size for the eggs to sit on, with a nest of paper Easter basket stuffing ; ) You can use any color to create this look… have fun with it! Happy, Happy Easter!! Can’t believe it’s here already! I used my Wilton food coloring gel in pink rose to dye the eggs.

    I didn’t use vinegar in the water, just the dye 😉 You can also make three bowls of water and dilute the dye a little in each bowl… might make the process go quicker 🙂 The light eggs only need to be in the water a second!

    These are so pretty. I tried once to achieve that fading from dark to light effect with cake icing and was (um) not quite so successful. I love your idea.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you
    know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.

    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    With thanks!
