Here is a fun way to create colorful tie dye Easter eggs! The boys and I all enjoyed creating these beautiful eggs, and it was a simple and low mess project. Sounds like a win!
We were inspired by these beautiful eggs on Housing a Forest.
I love decorating with color in the spring.
These eggs are so simple to decorate.
Step 1: Color the eggs with Sharpie markers.
Step 2: Drizzle rubbing alcohol onto the eggs. We used plastic droppers for the alcohol. The alcohol blurs the colors of the Sharpies, creating beautiful swirls!
An egg that starts like this:
Looks like this after the rubbing alcohol!
You don’t have to color the egg in patterns, though.
The purple one in the top picture started out like this:
- We put paper towels under the eggs to keep Sharpie marker off our counter tops.
- The rubbing alcohol will remove any Sharpie that does make it onto the counters, and it also helps get Sharpie off of fingers (although not completely).
- The eggs dry quickly!
