DIY Glitter Eggs

A special Easter egg DIY on the blog today from the lovely Christine from Just Bella. Do check out Christine's other DIY's I adore her kiddo crafts!



There is something about easter and spring that just makes me crave bright, happy colours - throw some glitter into the mix and I think you've got yourself a pretty happy easter! These DIY glitter eggs are the perfect last minute craft (I can't believe easter is already this weekend!) to add some sparkle to your table. Seriously, they're so easy, here's what you do:

Supplies:
- craft glue
- glitter
- styrofoam eggs (available at most craft stores this time of year, I got mine at the dollar store)


Step 1: Use a paintbrush to completely cover your styrofoam egg with glue. 
*tip: I stuck a toothpick in mine to hold so you didn't get so much goop all over your fingers.

Step 2: Roll egg in a small bowl full of glitter. You can use shake the glitter over top the egg too and let the excess fall into the bowl. Don't be shy!

Step 3: Shake off excess glitter and set aside to dry.


That's it! I hope you enjoy the sparkle because you're likely to be finding glitter all over everything after this craft - but that's all part of the fun, right? Happy Easter! Thank you so much for having me, Fritha!
