Here’s my inspiration…Pottery Barn German glitter eggs. Sadly, they are no longer available, but that’s OK because I am going to make my own. And…I am going to use brighter colors as well. However, notice that the eggs are in two different sizes…small and large. You will see why that’s important in a moment.
Here’s what you will need:
- Several colors of fine glitter (Mine came from Hobby Lobby)
- White glitter
- Mod Podge
- Flat brush
- Small bowl
- Small plastic eggs (Mine came in a pack of 24 from Dollar Tree)
- Wax paper
And here’s what you will do:
- Mix the colored glitter with the white in a small bowl…1 part color, 2 parts white. This will give it a little more sparkle and texture.
- Choose an egg that is roughly the same color as the glitter you will use. Make sure it is firmly closed.
- Paint the egg with a layer of Mod Podge and place it in the bowl of glitter.
- Spoon the glitter over the egg until it is completely covered.
- Using the spoon, remove the egg from the bowl and place on wax paper to dry.
And here’s the result! Hey…wait a minute! Some of those eggs are larger than the others! And I said to use small plastic eggs, right? Well, here’s my secret…
The larger glitter eggs came from Walmart! Yep…Walmart...so they were no work whatsoever! I just opened the package and taaa daaa! When I spied these babies, I knew I had just cut my work in half! I mean…why reinvent the wheel?
Just mix them in with your handmade glitter eggs and who can tell? Gotta love easy!
And just in case you are looking for a few more ways to decorate your Easter eggs, here are my botanical découpage eggs…made with plastic eggs and pretty napkins! You’ll find a complete tutorial here.
And to add a little bit of a frenchy touch, here are my French découpage eggs, including one with an image of Notre Dame cathedral! You will find the directions here.
And Miss Kitty is reminding me that we also made a very different kind of Easter egg…using something unusual to decorate real eggs…
Silk ties! Yes, you can actually transfer the dye from the silk ties to a real egg! You will find the instructions here.
And stay tuned…because I am working on a fun way to display your eggs, too!
Remember to pin it!
