DIY Speckled Eggs

Hello Everyone!

Who else is having a hard time believing it’s the last day of March!? Time flies when you’re having fun… or when you’re super busy!

 I’ve been seeing pretty eggs all over Pinterest and am loving how they bring a natural feel inside! They were very easy to make!

 The first step was painting the eggs Robin Egg Blue (you can use any color or even an assortment of colors but I love the color of a robin’s eggs and thought I’d like mine to look as real as possible!) Allow them to dry; this won’t take long at all. I then wanted to give the eggs a speckled look and used a couple different methods to achieve this. I used my paint brush to “flick” paint at the egg… this is a bit tricky as sometimes it went on in streaks. Practice first on scrap paper. I also used a straw to “flick” the paint and it worked well too. I also used a toothpick and after dabbing it in paint, I dabbed it on the egg, giving it more speckles. Allow time to dry and you’re done!

    Hi, Kendra ~ These eggs are so cute! I love decorating with eggs for the spring, but most of the commercially available ones are so expensive. I now have a solution to that problem! :0) Thanks for the inspiration!
