If you prefer to decorate your Easter eggs close to the holiday like we do, then you probably haven’t gotten around to it yet. And while the PAAS kits are an ever-present Easter staple and remind us of our childhood, aren’t you bored of the same ‘ol-same ‘ol eggs? Well, we did a little thinking and came up with a creative way to decorate our eggs this year. And all it takes are some household items…well, besides the eggs of course.
We had some nail polish bottles rolling around so we dove into the simple splatter paint egg decorating.
Here’s what you need:
Newspaper to catch the splatter
Nail polish remover (for the aftermath)
Don’t forget to throw on some grubby clothes that you don’t mind getting paint splatter on…that means take that Slip77 swag off!!
Start by getting all of your items together and throwing down the newspaper. Then just splatter, drop, paint, gloop or swirl the nail polish onto your eggs! I would recommend decorating one side of the egg, letting it dry a bit and then hitting the other side. Have fun with it!
If you want the eggs to last and not smell like low tide on the rock, you can drain them by poking a hole in the bottom or just hard boil ’em and eat a ton of egg salad over the next week.
