Blinged Out Easter Egg
Add some fun and colorful Easter eggs to your spring home decor! You could hang these Blinged Out Easter Eggs on a tree outside or turn them into a beautiful spring garland. Have the kids help with this fun Easter craft by including other "toppings", such as glitter and tissue paper. This is a fun springtime craft project that is great for the whole family to do together! Designer Lindsay Obermeyer teaches you how to make these crafty eggs in just a few simple steps.
- Stryofoam™ egg
- Tissue paper (I used pink scraps leftover from my Peony Tissue Paper Wreath.)
- Collage Pauge® Instant Decoupage™
- Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue
- sequins, same or similar in color to the tissue paper
- 2" eye pin
- 8" of 1/4" satin ribbon
- Foam Brush
- Cut the tissue paper into 1" squares.
- Pour a puddle of Collage Pauge® onto the foil. Using the foam brush dab the Collage Pauge® over a portion of the egg. Add a few pieces of tissue paper. Dab more Collage Pauge® across the surface of the paper. Continue to collage in this manner until the entire egg is covered in tissue paper. Allow to dry.
- Once dry, push the 2" eye pin into the center egg's top end.
- Apply a thin coat of Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue over a portion of the egg. Use the side of a toothpick to evenly spread it out.
- With a clean toothpick, lightly dab it into the glue. This will give the toothpick a slightly tacky surcface for using to pick up and position sequins. Apply sequins to the egg with the cup side of the sequin facing. (This side is more reflective and will provide maximum blingness.)
- Continue adding glue and sequins until the entire surface of the egg is covered.
- Slip the ribbon through the eye of the eye pin. Pull it through so both ends are touching. Tie them together using an overhand knot.
- Allow the glue to dry.
- Give some Easter Egg Bling as a gift, hang it in the window or display it in your favorite basket.
