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.
