DIY Marbled, Gold-Dipped Easter Eggs
A luxe take on your traditional dye job from Style Me Pretty Living founder Abby Larson
So you've got less than a week to figure out your Easter table setup, and those foil-wrapped potted lilies aren't cutting it? Fear not. Style Me Pretty Living founder Abby Larson knows her way around a stunning tablescape, and she's sharing a foolproof DIY to luxe up your holiday spread. “For those of you that consider yourself a little fancy pants, these eggs are just about as pretty as they get," she explains. "With a little bit of gold paint, simple marbled eggs are transformed into glammed up versions that you can display in a pretty bowl, on a great tray or in a tall cylindrical vase.”
Glass or metal bowl
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!
