Easter is just a week away and with that holiday on the horizon, it’s time to get crafty. Of course, food, family, and the feast that usually ensues is the focus, but decorating the eggs is often what makes all of it fun. Traditionally, they are to be painted a deep shade of red –the hisotry of which you can read all about by clicking here!

You don’t have to stick to tradition because in certain cases, rules are made to be broken. So rather than putting all of your eggs in one colour basket, try a new look and glam them up with glitter!

Materials:

Hard boiled eggs, white

Egg dyes or acrylic craft paint

Large glitter flakes (not the fine, dust kind)

White glue, dries clear

Egg holder

Eggprep

Instructions:

1. Colour your eggs with the dye shades you have selected, according to packet instructions. Let them dry. If you are using craft paint, apply it to one side using a sponge brush and let dry, then pain the other side and rest it on dry side.

2. Take your freshly coloured, but dried eggs and place them in an egg holder. With a crafts sponge brush, apply the glue to the top half of the egg I’m a downward motion, sweeping less as you reach the bottom in order to create an ombré effect.

3. Before it dries, sprinkle generous amounts of glitter onto the glue-covered end of the egg. Make sure to place a napkin or paper underneath to catch the flakes that didn’t stick, and re-use them!

4. Place it in the egg holder to dry for at least 30 minutes, with the glittered end facing up.

What are your favourite Easter traditions? Do you have any twists to the classic foods and customs?

Style is served!
