Glittered Easter Eggs

Studding your lawn with these fluorescent gems not only gives little egg hunters a leg up, but also lends a shot of rowdy neon to a holiday otherwise characterized by polite pastels.

  • 10-inch square of 1/2-inch-thick foam board

  • Pencil

  • Ruler

  • Pins

  • Glitter

  • Dyed eggs

  • Craft glue

  • Spoon

  • Brush


  1. Before you get started, make an egg-drying rack: Cut a 10-inch square from 1/2-inch-thick foam board.

  2. Draw a grid on the foam board using a pencil and a ruler, and insert pins where the lines of the grid intersect.

  3. Brush half an egg with craft glue, and sprinkle with glitter (it's best to use glitter in the same shade as the dyed egg to intensify the color).

  4. Place the egg on the rack, glitter side up, to dry. 

  5. Repeat on the other side of the egg.
