Hey crafters! I thought I’d share this crazy easy Easter craft. I know all of you have eggs in your fridge this month, so why not use some of them as part of your decorations. These simple Easter egg magnets are a great addition to the kitchen decor. Try this DIY now!
For this DIY, you’ll need:
- Hot glue and gun
- Food coloring
Dye your eggs. This step is optional but it is a good way to add some color to your refrigerator. If you already have a lot of items posted to your refrigerator currently, maybe keeping the eggs white or its natural brown color is a good idea. I dye my eggs by adding a few drops of food coloring into water and letting the eggs sit in the dyed water for about 30 minutes. Dry the eggs once they are completely dyed to your liking.
Using a knife or a sharp object, poke a small hole at the top of the egg and carefully begin peeling away the top portion of the egg into small pieces. You could crack the egg on the side of a bowl or counter, but you risk removing more eggshell than necessary. Peeling away pieces at the top of the egg gives you more control over how large that hole is. Empty the yolk inside the egg and make a delicious omelette!
Rinse the egg out and let it dry. Hot glue the small magnet on the side of the egg where you want the “back of it” to be. Be sure to get strong magnets. As we all know, eggs are delicate and having a weak magnet risks the egg from falling off the refrigerator and breaking.
Add your florals and water inside of the egg. Use silk flowers if you want it to last a long time. Display on your refrigerator or magnetic board and you’ll have a sweet touch of Spring to enjoy all season!
