DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs

1 Mar

Easter is around the corner and I thought this year it would be really fun to include some homemade Easter egg bath bombs in my kids Easter baskets.  If you have a tween or teen girl, you know how much they love bath bombs.  I recently learned how easy (and somewhat inexpensive) they are to make at home.  Besides Easter, you could make these for any occasion.  Birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, etc.  I think these would make great bridal shower favors.  You could use our personalized favor tags & bags to make it an adorable take home favor!

My daughter Emily and I made these over the weekend and we had a lot of fun doing this together.  It was messy, so keep a vacuum nearby!  Here is the recipe we used from diyprojectsforteens.com:

Ingredients and Supplies:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil
  • 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
  • food coloring (any color you want)
  • bowl
  • whisk
  • jar
  • bath bomb mold

Step One

Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix them all evenly with the whisk.

Step Two

In a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together. Note that in this step, the essential oils, fragrances and colors are added. This is an important step! Make sure to pick out lots of fragrance oils to try out here, as you can make many fabulous combinations for bath time.

Step Three

Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mix, one small spoon at a time.

Step Four

When well mixed, you simply pack this mixture into a bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry. Work quickly so as not to let the bath bomb mixture dry out.

We packed plastic Easter Eggs and clear ornament molds I found at a craft store.

My daughter Emily proud of her Bath Bomb creation!  You can combine different colors and scents if you’d like to make more colorful combinations. 

Enjoy!

How to Decoupage Easter Eggs

18 Mar

Decoupaging Easter Eggs is simpler than you could ever imagine! Just follow these easy steps from the staff at The Stationery Studio.  We sat down in our staff kitchen with some Mod Podge, paintbrushes and our personalized napkins and VOILA! In less than an hour, we had beautifully decorated Easter Eggs.  Imagine the possibilities….Our Caspari Napkins left over from the Christmas holidays were perfect for the task.  You can re-purpose your custom paper napkins from Birthday Parties, Christmas or Holiday Parties and use them to decorate Easter Eggs with these instructions:

Easy Tips for Decorating Easter Eggs

 

What You’ll Need for Easy Egg Decorating/Decoupaging with Paper Napkins:

Decoupage Tools and Materials:

  • Sharp scissors
  • Paint Brushes – various sizes
  • Paper napkins (we used Bright Lights Pearl Caspari Napkins from TheStationeryStudio.com; $48 per 100)
  • Mod Podge (Matte-Mat) glue sealant (available at most craft stores or online)
  • Blown-out eggs

How to Blow Out Eggs

1. Pierce both ends of a raw egg using the tip of a paper clip or a sharp-edged knife.  Twist gently in holes to widen them slightly, with bottom hole a bit larger.

2. Poke a toothpick into the larger hole; pierce yolk, and stir.

3. Hold egg, larger hole down, over a bowl. Blow air into egg until all the contents are out of the shell. Rinse egg with warm water; drain. Blow air into egg again. Let dry.

How To Paper-Napkin Decoupage

1. Find a napkin design that can be re-purposed for Easter.  Trim loosely around the designs on your custom 3-ply paper napkin using sharp scissors. Separate printed top layer; you only need to use the top layer.

2. Coat part of a blown-out white egg with Mod Podge using a small paint brush. Apply 1 cutout design to egg (see pictures above); smooth with brush. Let dry. Repeat, adding designs as desired.

3. Apply Mod Podge with a medium brush to entire egg. Let dry.

Kids and kids-at-heart will love to decorate Easter Eggs with this simple technique.  A monogrammed napkin will add a personal touch to your Easter Decor, perfect for centerpieces at Easter brunch and are sure to remain special keepsakes for years to come.
