My sister-in-law and I decided to whip up these beauties the other day. Our Easter table is now fully decorated and ready with pastel-colored, farm-fresh eggs…and their cement counterparts to spice things up!
Enjoy this DIY Tutorial on how to make them.
♥ Happy Easter! ♥
1. Drain all your eggs by poking a small hole into the top of the egg. Peel away a small opening (almost the size of a dime), to make it easier to pour the cement into. (We recommend you save the yolks and egg whites in the fridge so you can make a breakfast quiche or scramble the next morning. ;))
2. Prop up your eggs inside an egg crate (or use the same fancy one we did!) with the openings facing up.
3. Pour approximately 1/4 cup (enough for 1 egg) of the Rockite Cement into your plastic container and add 1 Tbs of water. Begin mixing your cement, adding 1 Tbs of water at a time until you achieve a honey-like consistency. (I believe it only took 2 Tbs of water total for this 1/4 cup).
4. Within ten minutes of mixing the cement, pour the mixture very slowly, into the openings of your eggs. Stop one or two drops before the top, or a 1/2″ below the top, to create a flat bottom so your eggs can stand up if you wish. Set outside, or in a well ventilated area, for 1 hour to dry.
5. After 1 hour, use your crafting knife (or razor blade) to carefully peel off the shells. This might take some time and patience, though peeling them under running water helps.
6. Once the eggs are dry from the extra water, display them in bowls, on your table, or in an egg holder. You did it!
