OH yeah. My dutiful hens have been giving us quite the overflow of beautifully colored eggs. I’m talking close to 5 dozen eggs a week – I can’t hand them out fast enough. I keep looking at the variety of amazing colors and wanted a way to incorporate them into some spring/Easter decor. Have you ever blown out eggs before? I’m definitely not an expert, and it’s not the quickest activity without some sort of fancy tool, but it is kind of fun. I blew out a pile of eggs and then went for a metallic dipping effect and the eggs turned out SOOOO pretty. Would you like to make some glitter Easter eggs?
To blow out the inside, you will need to poke a hole in each end and then blow air into the egg – you can read how I did this without any special equipment here.
Once the eggs are cleaned and dry, it’s time to add the glitter.
Put white glue or Mod Podge into a small bowl – the glue can be thinned down with some water. Dip the eggs into the glue mixture and blot excess drips. Sprinkle with glitter. Place the eggs on a toothpick pushed into styrofoam to dry. For polka dots, simply dab the tip of your finger into the glue, dot onto the egg, and cover with glitter, shaking off the excess. For stripes, use two pieces of washi tape wrapped around the egg to make a straight line between – apply glue and glitter. Remove the washi tape before the glue dries.
They’re beautiful, aren’t they? Make some, okay? Need any eggs??
