Glittered Eggs

Coating Easter eggs with glitter provides a sparkling alternative to coloring them with dyes. Powdered glitter comes in an array of colors, which can be mixed to create different shades. For added shimmer, combine colored glitter with either gold or silver glitter.

Introduction

Materials

  • Eggs (for varying sizes, try chicken, quail, and goose eggs).
  • Powdered glitter in assorted colors, including gold for sparkle
  • Egg blower (available at crafts stores) or rubber ear syringe (available at drugstores)
  • Craft glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Pin
  • Wax paper
  • Bowls and spoons (for glitter)

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Blow out eggs. Working over a bowl, pierce one end of a raw egg with a pin. Pierce other end, and use pin to enlarge hole slightly and break yolk. With your mouth or an egg blower, blow into smaller hole, forcing contents of egg through larger hole into bowl. Rinse inside of egg thoroughly; let dry.

  2. Step 2

    Brush craft glue onto egg. Gently set in bowl of glitter. Spoon glitter over egg, covering entire surface. Remove from bowl; set on wax paper to dry for 1 hour.

  3. Step 3

    For an elegant statement, you can display glittered eggs in a glass hurricane. We set ours in front of a romantic "antique" mirror.

    Wow, these glittered eggs are much more attractive than the ones we usually see every year which are commonly painted in dyes. They are also very suitable to be decorative pieces around the house throughout the entire year too and not only for easter. Silver and gold are definitely very attractive to the eyes because of their shimmery and shiny nature. However, I am sure the kids still prefer their favorite animal print eggs in dyes.
