The kiddos shouldn't have all of the Easter fun, plus your friends will admire your craftiness if you gift them one of these little bath bombs—made with a touch of glitter of course.
6 tbs almond oil
4 tsp essential oil in whatever scent you’d like
3 tbs water
3 oz citric acid powder
8 oz cornstarch
8 oz epsom salts
Plastic Easter eggs
Whisk together dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
In a smaller bowl, mix wet ingredients and add a few drops of food colouring.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix together with your hands. The mixture should be moist and clump together in your hands. If it is too dry and not sticking together, you can add a bit more water but be careful because you don’t want it to be too wet.
Pack mixture into Easter egg molds and let sit several minutes.
Cover a baking sheet with the fluffy towel and place a sheet of wax paper on top. The towel will help keep the eggs from flattening out on the bottom. Carefully remove bath bombs from molds and place on baking sheet. Let dry 2 days before placing in Easter baskets!
Perfect for the crafter who doesn't want to go all-in with dyes and whatnot, these mess-free eggs are made pretty with a little bit of sparkly tape. The best part? Whether you invite the little ones to help, or you break out the cocktails for the girls, these eggs are essentially in the no-fail zone.
Glitter Masking Tape (available at Michaels)
Hard boil or blow out your eggs.
Use a pencil to draw backwards letters on the backside of the tape (the peel-away part). You can trace stencils or fonts printed from your computer, or you can freehand the letters. You can also cut out simple shapes, like triangles, to create patterns on your eggs.
Use the X-Acto knife to cut out each letter and press firmly onto the egg. Voilà!
For a project with an end result that looks as if it came from a fancy-pants boutique, these gold-dipped eggs are surprisingly simple. A little grape juice and vinegar provide the foundation for the marbling, while some gold paint adds a touch of glam.
Glass or metal bowl
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).
Mix equal parts grape juice and vinegar in a bowl, enough to submerge your eggs. Place eggs in the bowl and leave overnight.
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.
Dip egg partially into a cup of gold paint. Place upside-down in egg carton to dry.
Place in a bowl on your Easter table to enjoy!
