If you have not found anything that you like from all the Easter home decorating ideas, look at these fantastic speckled Easter eggs which have an incredible rustic charm. They are not as glossy and shiny as other Easter eggs decorations and yet they are just as beautiful with the natural look. The technique to make speckled eggs is pretty simple. You need egg dye and a brush (or a toothbrush). Prepare the dye in separate bowls or mugs for each color and add a spoonful of vinegar. After you have colored the eggs, let them dry and it is time to make the speckles. Mix 10 drops of red and 5 drops of green food coloring in a small glass with a few drops of water and you will get a brown dye. Dip the toothbrush in the brown dye. Point the toothbrush 6 to 10 inches (10-15 cm) from the egg and run your finger along the bristles from front to back to speckle the egg. That’s it – you made speckles! Let the eggs sit on a carton until dry and store in the fridge or continue with arranging them in another way.

You may use some golden paint and will have eggs with golden speckles following the same technique, described above. If you are not making eatable eggs – a spray can be used for the speckles.

They are really miniature but will be a magnificent accent on your Easter dinner table and you can make small nests for each one of the people who will be sharing your Easter dinner.
