An Easter DIY to Make Your Easter Eggs Sparkle in 3 Easy Steps
It is no secret, we love to Sparkle and Easter is the perfect opportunity to get crafty with some glitter. Here is an easy Easter DIY to make your Easter eggs sparkle (not unlike our signature Sparkle Balls) in 3 easy steps.
This Easter, Sparkle:
Here Is What You Will Need:
- An Easter Egg Dye Kit (they range from $2.00 to $6.00 at your local craft store or pharmacy)
- Spoons and Cups
- Modge Podge Craft Glue (or any other crafty glue — your choice)
- Paint Brush
- Loose Sparkles (the more, the better)
- & Mini Eggs (for snacking)
Step 1: First things, first. Hard-boil your eggs (and abstain from eating them). Once cooled, follow the instructions on your Easter egg dye kit to dye your eggs (we love pink, yellow and blue for Easter). Depending on the kit you choose, you might need a little bit of vinegar and water for this step.
Step 2: After the eggs have air-dried, use the paint brush to smooth a thin layer of craft glue across the entire surface of the egg. Place the egg in a cup and sprinkle your sparkles over the egg, letting any loose sparkles spill into the cup. You can then use a spoon to scoop up the excess sparkle and re-sprinkle over the egg. Repeat until the egg is completely covered in gorgeous glitter.
Get glittery! Repeat Step 2, until all of your coloured Easter eggs are fully sparkled.
Step 3: Once you are finished and all of your Easter eggs have been substantially sparkled, it is time to let the glue and glitter settle. Feeling inspired? While you are waiting for your Easter eggs to dry, shop our Sparkle collection for a glittery Easter treat.
Once your Easter sparkle eggs are fully dried, it is time to show them off. Keep it simple and perch your glitter eggs in a painted egg carton, or get creative by building an adorable faux bird's nest to hold them (better yet, buy a pre-made nest from Michael's Craft Store for $5.00). This Easter, we are showcasing our sparkle eggs in glass display vases with decorative grass (and you can, too!).
