DIY Cement Easter Eggs | Camille Styles

How’s everyone’s Easter prep coming along? If you haven’t had the chance to get your egg-making on, but are still hoping to squeeze in a crafting session, I’ve got just the project for you. Don’t be intimidated! By using eggs as molds, these cement Easter eggs are surprisingly easy to make in no time flat, and best of all, they’re reusable year after year. I also love that they’re heavy and stand upright on their own, making them perfect for your Easter table, a themed-out mantle or bookcase, and as year-round paperweights. Before I show you how it’s done, I have to give a shout out to Rebecca for inspiring me to work with this awesome and underutilized material… now, keep reading for the step-by-step!

  1. Pour approximately 1/4 cup Rockite cement into the plastic container. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time, and stir between each added tablespoon until you reach an Elmer’s Glue-like consistency.
  2. Within 10 minutes, carefully pour cement into upside-down drained eggs as pictured, stopping just at the egg shell opening (if you don’t have a steady hand, it might be helpful to use a plastic funnel when pouring as long as the cement consistency is fluid enough). This creates a flat bottom that allows eggs to stand upright. Set outside for 1 hour to dry.
  3. Once dry, use craft knife to peel egg shell. I advise doing this under running water.
  4. Allow to dry. optional: tape off half the egg with duct tape, and spray with spray paint for a fun dip-dyed look.

  1. So cool! I love this. So many DIY projects to try!

  2. Very Pretty! At first glance, I thought they were confetti eggs (with a golden touch) and yikes, that would hurt if you got smashed on the head with one. Cute, fun idea!

    Love This Life

  3. I DIY’d some gold dipped Easter eggs last year ( and adored them so much! I love the idea of the cement so I’d have them year after year. So fun!

  4. Love this idea!!! Such a fun spin on the typical dyed Easter eggs.

  5. I love this idea! I like that it’s reusable year after year.

    So beautiful!

  7. These are gorgeous! And being cement, I would guess they would last several Easters?

  8. auste says:

    These are fab… so refreshing seeing an easter project that’s not pastel colored and overly cutesy. Very cool. Thanks!

  9. super cute! not very kid friendly (my toddler is a thrower) but when he’s a little older it will be fun. until then, we’re decorating with washi tape (I posted a DIY on my blog – a great ‘little hands’ way to decorate)

  10. I’d love a combo of your two egg DIYs for year round decor. Cement with a marbleized finish – like malachite! Off to DIY brainstorm…

    I am not a holiday decorator, but these may be the only Easter decorations I would be willing to have.

  12. Denisse Hudock says:

    These are beautiful!
    But as an architect, I’m going to go ahead and say these CONCRETE eggs. Cement is the dry mix, once you’ve added water to it, it becomes concrete. 😉 Just a little lesson in building materials. I should make these and bring them to the office!
