Easy DIY Crystal Geode Eggs Make Easter Hunts Much More Magical

If you celebrate Easter, then you know it's not complete without an Easter egg hunt. Normally, a hard boiled egg dyed in a baking soda solution and colored tablets will do.

But in the age of curated Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards, that's just not going to cut it.

You may have never thought to make crystal geode eggs before, but maybe now you will.

This DIY is not for the faint of heart as it requires many steps, but it will be so worth it in the end.

But if you "mess up," don't worry! She actually encourages different shapes of squiggles, making them look closer to ones you'd find out in nature.

Barb also uses plastic crystals from the craft store to make them a bit more realistic. This way, they'll act as decor pieces all year round.

You can literally grow your own crystal geode right before your eyes.
