Are you excited to start decorating for Spring this year, like I am? In this post I’m going to share how to make cement Easter eggs for your spring home decor.
How to Make Cement Easter Eggs
This year I decided to DIY a few things for my Spring decor. I love a good handmade item for my home, and this tutorial on how to make cement Easter eggs is one that anyone can do. This craft probably took me around an hour, and was super easy and quick, only costing me under $10.
What You Will Need
The great thing about this DIY, is it only requires a few basic things to get started.
- Exacto Knife
- 1lb Box Rockite
- egg carton
- 4-6 empty egg shells
- disposable plastic container
- stir stick or fork
The first thing you want to do, is empty your egg shells. Surprisingly, this is a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. In fact, we planned on having a big breakfast the day I made these, and I was easliy able to save the egg shells for this project. If you are planning on making these, be sure to have a way to use up all the eggs, or just purchase a cheap carton of eggs instead of using your organic eggs like I did 😉
Simply, tap the bottom of the egg on a hard surface and slowly peel away the shell and membrane, then drain the egg into a bowl.
Mixing the Cement
The next step in making cement Easter eggs, is mixing up the main ingredient: cement. This process is a tad tricky when finding the perfect consistency. I like to start with more Rockite than water, then slowly add in water. I don’t have an exact ratio for this, it takes some figuring out and mixing, to find a good pourable consistency. Which is what you want, a pourable, thick, batter-like consistency; to easily pour into the egg shells.
Next, you will pour the cement mixture into the egg shells, filling them to the top. In the meantime, you will want to let them sit about 30ish minutes or until they have hardened.
The Final Step on How to Make Cement Easter Eggs
Lastly, after the cement has set and hardened, you can begin removing the shell with your Exacto knife. Unfortunately, this is the most tedious part. However, it doesn’t take very long to do, and once you get the hang of it, it will go by very quickly.
Well that is honestly how simple it is to make these super cute cement Easter eggs. I’m definately excited to scatter these around our home for spring, and I know you will too! Check out my latest post here, and be sure to join my email list to stay up to date on all my latest content.
