How-to | DIY : Glitter-Dipped Painted Easter Eggs
Friday 3rd April, 2015
Just in time for the Easter Long Weekend, here’s a fun & super-easy idea for hand-painted Easter eggs I made two years ago, and will be making again this year . . .
Okay so for the eggs, it’s pretty simple: I used some Martha Stewart gold glitter from Michaels craft shop. First I hard boiled the eggs and then painted them different shades of pink with acrylic paint. While the eggs were still a bit wet with paint, I gently dipped them in a bowl of gold glitter and it stuck to the paint wonderfully. I then went in and touched up the paint on the eggs a bit.
Another way to do it would be to let the painted eggs dry first, then cover the top with some glue and dip them in the glitter then, this way you wouldn’t have to touch up the paint at the end, but I didn’t think of this the first time…ahahah. I love the Martha Steward glitter collection. I have EVERY color. Excited to make some more eggs this year. Oh and also I don’t know how safe they are to eat considering the acrylic paint covering—I would just say they shouldn’t be eaten—just to be safe! —Emily
