Faux Granite Easter Eggs

We’re so excited to be here today showing off an original idea we came up with after our granite counter top project, faux granite eggs.  Decorating Easter Eggs :: Faux Granite Easter Eggs.

To make your own faux granite eggs, you need little supplies and probably have everything on hand.

Plastic eggs.

1. Acrylic paint: Black, Cream, Tan, Brown, clear glitter.

2. Sponge (scrunched plastic bag will work too)

Directions:
1.  Paint eggs black, let dry.
2.  Starting with tan, sponge the egg allover until it’s evenly distributed.
3.  Repeat with chocolate and then cream to bring out lighter tones.
4.  Sponge on glitter after all 3 colors are dry to give it a true granite look.
5.  Display and enjoy!
Tips for displaying eggs:
1.  Shredded book pages make a great jar filler for eggs.
2.  Unraveled twine or hemp mimics the look of a real nest.

We are stoked to be here with Aimee today.  We met her when she was in town and after spending all night with her (and Emily/52Mantels) at our local Denny’s, LOL, we feel like she’s an official real life friend.

She’s so fun in person and we adore her cute southern drawl.
Quick introduction to who we are…
We are identical twin sisters Kelli & Kristi of Lolly Jane, an eclectic DIY blog chalk full of home improvement projects, furniture revamps, holiday crafts, home decor tutorials and occasionally, a tasty dessert or two.
