DIY Decorative Easter Eggs With Melted Crayons

DIY Decorative Easter Eggs With Melted Crayons

Today’s post of sort of beauty related because I used a couple beauty items that haven’t used in quite awhile. Today is more of a relaxing day in my house my oldest is at a family members house closing in on the March break week and my husband and son went to Lego Land. So that left myself and my youngest home alone, being that Easter is coming up quite soon I decided to do a little DIY project that I found while perusing the net and I added my own little twist using nail foils. They turned out exceptionally well, Although one that I was working on ending up cracking but it was minor.
My daughter really enjoyed decorating her eggs and I actually got to see how artistic she really is. The eggs can be decorated any way you want to all that matters is that you have fun while creating them. Below is a list of what you will need to do the project as well as a few instructions to complete your Easter eggs.

Instructions:

1. Place eggs into a boiling pot and fill with cold water until it covers the eggs.
2.Boils eggs until they start to float to the top. This usually takes about 12-15mins
3. Throw water from pot and allow the eggs to cool for about 5-7 mins (they are VERY HOT!)
4. Gather crayon colours of choice and start to colour your design, keeping in mind because the eggs are hot they crayon will melt which is the look we are going for.
5.Place Eggs in the Fridge or Freezer to cool and allow the Crayon creation to set.
6. This step is optional you can apply any decor you want on your egg I applied nail foils.
There you have it! I currently have our eggs on the Window in between the 2 Orchids that I bought.
