Glitter & Puff Paint Easter Eggs

Even though St. Patrick's Day isn't here yet (side note: make sure you stop by on Sunday the 17th because there is going to be a HUGE giveaway that I'm participating in), I've already started planning for Easter crafts. There isn't much time in between the two holidays this year - only about two weeks. I don't usually decorate much for Easter - I just go with a spring vibe. This year, however, I wanted to make some Easter eggs so I bought a whole bunch of Styrofoam eggs. Way too many, probably.

I knew I wanted some of them covered in glitter. But, in order to make them a little different from what's already out there, I decided to decorate them with puff/fabric paint.

I coated the eggs in Mod Podge and then put glitter on top.

For drying, I stuck a needle through the bottom of the eggs and stuck it on a Styrofoam cone that I had.


 Then, to prevent the glitter from falling off, I covered the eggs in another layer of Mod Podge.

Then I got to decorating! Here they are! Yes, they are in a deviled egg plate.


Here is a close up:

Here are the other three:

For display, I found some old egg cups. They were really big and the eggs pretty much disappeared in them, so I put some cotton on the bottom and cut up streamers to look like a little colorful nest.

I like that they're all original.

 Stay tuned for lots more Easter egg crafts! I REALLY bought too many Styrofoam eggs!

Don't forget to come back on Sunday for the super duper huge giveaway!

  1. How lovely. My favorite is the white and purple one. This will be a fun project to try with my kids.

    1. That one is my favorite too! I also like the green one...too bad the white puff paint turned clear! If you give it a try - just allow for drying time!

  2. These are really cute! I am a lover of all things glitter! I will have to give this a try!

    Thanks for linking up to the In and Out of the Kitchen link party! I can't wait to see what you bring next week! I need to get working on my Easter decorations! Arrgghhh...
