Glitter Easter Eggs

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.

    Pretty eggs and I love being reminded of our flock when we lived in VA on the mtn. We ordered egg cartons online and had a box of about 250? I remember having 12 dozen eggs in the fridge at one point! I tried to sell them but friends always seemed happy to accept the freebies. :) I would still love to see some pics of your girls outdoors with your chickens!

      Thanks, Kristin! Yes, I have cartons that a friend gave me, but I’m running out of room to refrigerate the boxes. I’ll have to get some pictures of the chickens soon for ya!

    These look gorgeous!! The Color of the eggs and glitter go so nicely together.
    I LOVE your website and go on it a lot, because my favorite things are sewing/crafting :) Your projects are easy enough that I can do almost all of them, and I’m only 14. Thank you!!

    I definitely need to decorate some glittery eggs for Easter this year! These are so pretty, and my kids are like me. They love anything that sparkles!

      Hi Luisa – I blew the eggs out first. And for these particular eggs, I actually didn’t color them at all – these were the natural colors from my hens. Thanks for stopping by!

      I don’t really know if there would be a concern with the glue toxins seeping through the shell – glitter could probably be rinsed off the egg if some got on in while peeling. It would probably all turn out fine, but you’d be sad to crack open your pretty eggs. :)
