So I’m probably way late on the shaving cream Easter egg bandwagon, but better late than never, right?!
If you happen to be one of the few people that haven’t heard of or tried this method before, you’re going to love it.
Last year when I heard people were decorating their Easter eggs with shaving cream, I thought a couple of things. One- people will do just about anything. Two- that sounds way too messy, no thank you!
However, I had a delicious slice of humble pie. Ha! I realized, it’s not only so fun, it’s about the easiest (mess free) decorating method for the whole family.
Here are all the materials you need to get started:
Remember to have your eggs boiled and ready! (Seriously, some people skip this step)
Fill a medium bowl with vinegar and soak the boiled eggs for about 20 minutes. Pat dry with paper towel. (This is optional- coloring holds best when this step is done)
Time for the shaving cream!
I like to use a disposal pan/tray because no mess! You can use any deep dish pan or tray you like.
Fill with shaving cream, making sure the top layer is smoothed out. A spatula or butter knife will do the trick.
Next, add in the food coloring! Single drops of their favorite colors is all it takes. We like to sprinkle them around the pan. (There are a few lines in ours, they did their best with “drops” ha.)
Now make sure to blend lightly with a skewer!
And this is the part they’ve all been waiting for… dip those eggs! Actually it’s more of a light dip and turn. Get the gloves out! Make sure all those sides are covered well or you’ll end up with a white back.
Set aside the covered eggs and let sit for 1-2 minutes for pastels, 5-10 minutes for darker tones.
When you’re ready, rinse them with cold water and pat dry. That’s it! Easy, beautiful, (and fun to decorate) Easter eggs! I’m thinking I’ll add a few water colored flowers on mine…
Enjoy and happy Easter everyone!!
