Glittered Easter Eggs

Mar 25, 2010

I see glittered paper mache eggs all over the stores this time of year and never can allow myself to purchase them since they are so easy to recreate. I love how they sparkle when the light hits them. You can find paper mache eggs in all sizes but since I have a bag full of small ones I decided to make some mini glittered eggs. Right now it is all about me trying to use up my stash. You can create and attach a hanger to the top of each egg out of Baker’s Twine then place it on that Easter tree I keep talking about… which should just about be filled if you are making these projects.

I tell ya what, if you are creating these Easter projects send me a photo of your finished tree and I will pick a RAK winner for some Maya Road goodies. Your tree should be filled with the Easter Ornament Kit projects, Altered Easter Eggs, Vintage Postcard Easter Ornaments, Sweet Treat Cup and some Glittered Easter Eggs from today’s blog post.

Supplies Used: Folk Art 632 Rose Pink, 526 Soft Apple, 432 Sunflower Acrylic Paints, Creamy Brown Fluid Chalk Ink, Collage Pauge Instant Decoupage – Glossy, Crystal Coarse Glitter, Small Paper Mache Eggs, Bird Nest, Shredded Book Pages

Tools Needed: Paintbrush

Instructions:

  1. Using a paintbrush, paint each egg one of the colors listed above, let dry.
  2. Using a paintbrush apply Instant Decoupage over entire egg, apply Crystal Coarse Glitter, tap off excess, let dry.
  3. Place the eggs on top of a bird nest filled with shredded book pages.

How is that for super easy?
Enjoy!

    I just love all this gliittery stuff. It all looks so vintage. It is so nice to bring back that “look” for those who were not there to share it. You do a great job of it, Lisa.
