Easter weekend is upon us, but if you are looking for a last minute Easter decoration, check this out. This variation of my last post adds glitter to the eggs, but leaves a window in the sparkle to feature a fun picture of your loved ones.
Here is what you need:
- Plastic Decorating Eggs
- Matte Mod Podge
- Clear Spray Acrylic Sealer
- White School Glue
- Sponge Craft Brush
- Plastic Sandwich bag
- White Tissue Paper
- White Printer Paper
- Photos- For my last post I copied pictures onto tissue paper. This time I printed digital images directly to the tissue paper at approximately a 1″x1″ size, give or take a little depending on if it was a vertical or horizontal image.
4. My son was able to help with this step. Using a clean sponge craft brush spread a thin layer of school glue on the egg avoiding the image area. While the glue is still wet, place one egg at a time in a plastic sandwich bag that has glitter in it and shake. Let it dry and then wipe off any stray glitter that is resting on the image.
I chose to display my eggs on a “tree” on my kitchen table!
To display this way, it takes just a few simple steps:
1. Drill a hole in a block of wood. I found one a piece of 2×10 left over from another project in our garage.
2. Grab a stick off of a tree and hot glue it into the hole.
3. Hot glue crafting moss to the block of wood. ($1 at The Dollar Tree)
4. Tie one end of a piece of twine around the egg and leave a loop at the other end to hang on the “tree”.
