How To Make Gorgeous Glitter Easter Eggs

Start by covering the top half of the Easter egg with a liberal amount of Mod Podge.

This is a messy project and I’m still cleaning up glitter, lol!

But the finished project is worth any mess!

I found it was easier to cover one half with Mod Podge, add a generous amount of glitter and let it dry, then cover the other half.

I used an egg carton to hold them while drying.

Once they are dry, spray them with a coat of clear acrylic spray to seal the glitter.

I plan to make pink and gold ones as well. They come together easily.

Plus I already had the supplies in my stash, except the Easter eggs.

As they are only a Dollar, this is a very inexpensive project to make.
