Creative Easter Craft Idea: DIY Nail Polish Marbled Eggs

As Easter approaches and the school holidays kick in, it’s the perfect time to indulge in some crafty fun with the family. One delightful project that combines creativity and Easter spirit is making DIY Nail Polish Marbled Eggs. Not only is it a fun activity, but it also yields stunning decorative pieces that can adorn your home for the Easter celebrations.



Materials Needed:

  • Eggs
  • Toothpick
  • Bowl
  • Nail polish (unused or spare)
  • Water
  • Dish soap
  • Paper towels
  • Optional: glitter, stickers, or other embellishments




  1. Prepare the Eggs: Begin by hollowing out the eggs. To do this, carefully create a small hole on each end of the egg using a toothpick. Gently blow air through one hole, forcing the egg yolk and whites to come out through the other hole and into a bowl. Save the egg insides for a delicious breakfast or other culinary creations. Once emptied, rinse the eggshells with water and dish soap, then set them aside to dry.
  2. Create the Marbled Effect: Fill a bowl with water, making sure it’s deep enough to fully submerge an egg. Now, it’s time to get creative with your nail polish! Choose your desired colors and drop them onto the surface of the water, allowing them to spread and form beautiful patterns. Experiment with different color combinations and swirling techniques for unique designs.
  3. Dip the Eggs: Once you’re satisfied with the marbled pattern on the water’s surface, gently dip the prepared eggshells into the water, rolling them slightly to pick up the nail polish design. Be careful not to submerge them too deeply or leave them in the water for too long, as this can cause the nail polish to smear or clump. Lift the eggs out of the water and place them on a paper towel to dry.
  4. Final Touches: Once the nail polish on the eggs is completely dry, you can add extra embellishments if desired. Consider using glitter, stickers, or even metallic markers to further enhance their decorative appeal.
  5. Decorate for Easter: Now that your DIY Nail Polish Marbled Eggs are complete, it’s time to put them on display! Arrange them in a decorative bowl, nestle them in a basket with Easter grass, or hang them on branches for a unique Easter tree. Get creative with your displays and let your handmade creations add a festive touch to your home for the Easter celebrations.
