Mermaid Easter Eggs

Mermaids are my thing! I love everything about them and sometimes want to be a mermaid. With Easter around the corner and my fascination with Mermaids I decided to combine the 2 together and create some DIY Mermaid Easter eggs. It was actually more simple than I thought it would be with just a few supplies.

  1. After the hard-boiled eggs have cooled spray purple or pink color mist completely covering each egg and let dry.
  2. Wipe access color mist color off the egg with a paper towel.
  3. Once dry, apply the netting over the egg and secure with a rubber band.
  4. Apply some nail polish to sponge using the brush and dab on top of the netting onto the egg.
  5. Sprinkle some edible silver dust onto a napkin.
  6. With the netting still in place over the egg carefully roll the egg over the dust covering it.
  7. Blow access dust off and remove the netting.
  8. Repeat steps 1-6 for the rest of the eggs.
  9. Display your Mermaid Easter eggs on a bed of grass for everyone to see and enjoy eating!

Note: If you don’t want your eggs to have a background color you can skip the color mist and just dab the nail polish with the sponge over the netting. Then, you can continue with steps 4-6.
