DIY Glitter Easter Eggs
Finding the perfect center piece for your home isn’t always easy or budget-friendly. Sometimes the better option is to create one yourself. This craft idea combines techniques from two previous projects. Remember that gorgeous DIY Dollar Tree candy dish and the Glittered Fruit? Well, use that same dish and add in some Paper Mache Glitter Easter Eggs. It will turn out so pretty! This project is easy and perfect for beginners and best of all you can do it in front of the TV catching up on your latest shows. Enjoy.
What You Need:
- Candy Dish (Made from Dollar Tree)
- Paper Mache Eggs (Found at Hobby Lobby)
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Spanish Moss (Optional)
- Candlestick (Optional)
Grab your pack of paper mache eggs and set them up on an area ideal for glitter. I took the top of my son’s puzzle box and placed a piece of computer paper in there to catch the excess glitter. Take your paint brush and dip it into your Mod Podge and cover the entire paper mache egg. Just cover one egg at a time so the mod podge doesn’t dry up to quickly.
Grab the glitter of your choice and pour it all over the egg, carefully rotating until the entire surface is covered.
Continue on and do the rest of the eggs and allow them to dry for at least 20 minutes.
Once they are complete fill your Dollar Tree Candy dish up with Spanish moss and carefully place your eggs on the top. Display this home décor piece anywhere in your home and enjoy the glittery sparkle.
Another way to display your Glitter Eggs is to place them atop candlesticks. You can get clear, glass candlesticks at dollar stores in various styles and heights to create a stunning display.
