Easy Easter Decorations: Glitter Eggs

I hope you are ready to make the easiest Easter decorations of your life! You are about to learn how to make glitter eggs. These decoupage eggs are going to be a favorite holiday craft, especially since you can experiment with colors and glitter types.

I’ve never really decorated for Easter (I stick to the big holidays typically) but then I realized that I could make glitter Easter eggs and do a simple display . . .

and not only that, but I could use some Martha Stewart NEON glitter that I had in my stash. Winning! This isn’t just an easy craft for adults . . . it’s an easy Easter craft for kids too. Anyone can do it, even with no prior crafting skills. If you do this project with kids, just protect your work surface from glitter everywhere.

Do you have the Podgeables to use neon glitter? It’s actually not that risky because the eggs are small . . . so you get such a fun pop of color that isn’t overwhelming. Here’s how to make Mod Podge glitter eggs yourself.

Gather These Supplies

Okay, so I said this was easy, and I mean it. Step one is to paint your eggs with the acrylic paint colors of your choice. Give your eggs several coats of the paint and let dry.

Second step is to add Mod Podge to your eggs and then sprinkle the glitter over the top. Let the area dry and repeat. Once an egg is covered, touch up any areas you missed and let dry.

That is it! You are now the proud owner of some glitter Easter eggs.

Materials

  • Glitter
  • Acrylic paint

Tools

  • Paintbrush
  • Surface cover

Instructions

  1. Paint the eggs with acrylic paint colors of your choice. Give the eggs several coats of paint and let dry.
  2. Starting on one side, add Mod Podge to an egg and then sprinkle the glitter over the top. Let the area dry and repeat on another area.
  3. Once an egg is covered, touch up any areas you missed and let dry completely before using.

Notes

  • You can use plastic eggs - just prime with white plastic spray paint.
  • If you want to make the glittering go quicker, you can poke a hole in the bottom, place on a stick, and do the entire egg at once. You will have a hole at the bottom of your egg, however (so keep that in mind).

Doesn't mod pdge make a glitter formula? Seems like it would be easier to use that.

They do - but the glitter is one color. I wanted my eggs to be all different colors of glitter!
