Glitter Easter Eggs

Good morning! Today we're sharing a fun project to help you decorate your home for Easter. These glitter eggs are so easy and fun to make! 

To get started, you'll need a few supplies:
  • Plastic Eggs - We found a set of 12 white plastic eggs at Walmart for only $1.97
  • Wet Adhesive - We love the fast drying, clear Glossy Accents
  • Glitter - Distress Glitters are our go-to for sparkle

Simply add a strip of Glossy Accents to the plastic egg and spread it around. You can use the fine nib on the bottle or your finger. Sprinkle the glitter over the top of the wet adhesive, tap off the excess, and allow to dry. We found it was easiest to cover half the egg in glitter at a time. After that half was dry, we completed covering the rest of the egg in glitter. Glossy Accents has a quick dry time, so this process won't take too long! 

Distress Glitters have quickly become our favorite product for adding a little sparkle to projects. From Tim Holtz, the line complements other Distress products and mimics the look of vintage mica. Not only do these eggs look gorgeous covered in the thick chunks of glitter, the process was far less messy. We found that the Distress Glitters didn't have the same static cling properties as a super fine glitter, which meant we didn't end up with glitter all over our workspace, clothes, and face! You must give these new glitters a try.
