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.
- Before you get started, make an egg-drying rack: Cut a 10-inch square from 1/2-inch-thick foam board.
- Draw a grid on the foam board using a pencil and a ruler, and insert pins where the lines of the grid intersect.
- 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).
- Place the egg on the rack, glitter side up, to dry.
- Repeat on the other side of the egg.
